Basingstoke & District Sports Trust Ltd (BST) is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. Incorporated in 1965, the charity has managed Basingstoke Sports Centre in Hampshire, delivering a wide range of services within the centre and our local community, since 1970. In 2015, we expanded our physical activity offer to new communities by opening bstFitness in Newbury, West Berkshire. Prior to the pandemic, our turnover was approximately £3.8M with well over 1 million visits each year and we’re expecting to achieve that level again by the end of 2022/23.
We are now seeking to recruit to a number of vacant positions to provide the Board with the necessary skills and experience to build on our commitment to increasing our physical activity opportunity within the local community and expanding our offer of specialist wellbeing programmes.
We are looking for commercially-minded people in order to ensure our continued sustainability leading to a growth in our facilities and services for our local communities, and, ever increasing, population. We currently have eight voluntary Trustees and are seeking additional Trustees who are passionate about our aims and can complement the existing skills and experience of members of the Board, together with our leadership team, to ensure our future success.
Interested? For more information about the charity, the particular skills and experience we're seeking and how to apply, please view/download the Trustee Recruitment pack. We're particularly encouraging applications from females and those in the age groups 18-34 years, 35-44 years and 45-54 years, to address under representation at Board level.
The closing date for applications is 9am on Friday 2nd July 2021.
Thank you for your interest.
