Movement Park: Board Positions

Could you lead us?

Movement Park is now going through a time of transition and has ambitious plans as Stephen Somerville the founder and Convenor of the charity moves into a CEO role to further drive forward the progress that has been made over the first 3 years. The vision of the Charity is to enhance the wellbeing and social engagement of our community through sport and creative activities. Since inception Movement Park has seen growth and is becoming a well-known venue in the local community offering a host of activities such as Parkour, Tricking, Judo, Skateboarding as well as many others.

To support us during this exciting new phase in our growth, we are seeking to appoint new Chairperson and Secretary. These roles are crucial in allowing Movement Park to become sustainable over the next phase.

Both roles will be tasked with working closely with the board and our CEO to meet the organisation's strategic aims and objectives. You must be committed to the values of a community-focused organisation. The role of the Chairperson will be to work alongside the CEO to finalise the new strategic direction and governance of the charity, with the Secretary playing a crucial admin role, keeping our records in check and communicating out with the Board and our members.

Each role will scrutinise, review and monitor the management reports and constructively challenge the management where necessary.

These are voluntary roles, however any reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the carrying role, as board member, will be reimbursed.
