Cheshire East Council is enhancing the way leisure services are delivered and is now looking for trustees (directors) to head up the new ‘Everybody Sport & Recreation Trust.
The new trust will come into being in early 2014 and will replace the current delivery model of Council-run leisure centres and swimming pools and leisure development services. The aim is to improve services with a greater focus on improving the health and wellbeing of the young and vulnerable.
A total of 11 trustees will be appointed to the board and the deadline for applying is 12 noon on October 7. It is hoped the board will be in place by Autumn 2013.
Trustees should demonstrate a high level of interest in sport, recreation and health and be able to attract inward investment and have the ability to work as part of a team.
Council leader Michael Jones, who has overseen the creation of this new sports delivery model, said: “This is a truly exciting time for the Council. The way we deliver services will mean that our communities will benefit from a much more inclusive leisure service.
“The newly appointed trustees should represent the views of residents and the business communities, so will need to be a people person with business acumen and links in the business and local community.”
