What will you be doing?

York City Gymnastics is a long established charitable organisation that provides opportunities for children and adults to participate in gymnastics at all levels of ability as either participants, coaches or volunteers. Gymnastics activities take place in our purpose-built facility of over 2000sqm where more than 1300 children attend gymnastics classes each week. Having survived some difficult times during the Covid pandemic, we are now looking to rebuild and further develop the organisation so are seeking some new trustees to help take the organisation forward. Trustees are expected to attend board meetings on a regular basis (generally once per month but can be more frequently depending on any urgent issues that can arise from time to time) bringing their knowledge, expertise and experience to the governance and decision-making process. A background / interest in gymnastics, though desirable, is not essential and applications are welcome from all. Prospective trustees should ensure they are familiar with the legal duties of a trustee which are covered here on the Charity Commission website: The essential trustee: what you need to know, what you need to do If you are interested in becoming a trustee with York City Gymnastics please respond to this advertisement providing a CV and covering letter.  

What are we looking for?

We are looking for Trustees with knowledge and experience of fundraising, HR, legal, charity governance and finance / accounting.

What difference will you make?

The organisation is now in a strong position to rebuild and further develop our activities. As a charitable organisation we have always had a strong reliance on volunteer support that had made a real difference for many children through the numerous benefits of participation in the sport of gymnastics.
