Thinking about being a Trustee? It’s great way to support your local community and we have a very rewarding role available in Cannock Chase at the moment that may suit YOU!
Beaudesert Outdoor Activity Centre is nestled on the edge of Cannock Chase and provides outdoor experiences for young people from all backgrounds. They offer life changing experiences and help to develop confidence, teamwork, leadership and communication through outdoor activities.
Their 120 acres of mixed woodland and parkland offer fantastic opportunities for everyone to learn and develop outdoors, giving a truly unique experience for schools and youth groups. As well as their magical setting, they have fantastic facilities and activities maintained and delivered by an amazing team of staff and volunteers who genuinely love their jobs.
They are looking for 2 new Trustees to join their board. This is a volunteer role, and they are looking for people who have some business experience and ideally some previous Charity governance experience. Any working life experience of building repair and construction work would be useful but not essential. The Trustees are required to attend 7 meetings per year plus some ad hoc meetings dependent on current projects. Trustees serve for a maximum of 8 years, and this is a great opportunity to volunteer around any existing work commitments, whilst also giving back to your local community and supporting young people’s development!
