Board Recruitment

Board Recruitment 

Sandwell Leisure Trust welcomes self motivated, forward thinking people with an interest in sport, health, fitness and customer service to join its Board.  We are particularly looking for people with experience of HR, Legal, Property/Land and Commercial/Business with the ambition to drive our expansion.

Sandwell Leisure Trust’s impressive portfolio includes sport and leisure centres and a golf course. We also opened three new centres – Tipton Leisure Centre, Portway Lifestyle Centre and Wednesbury Leisure Centre. Our core business areas includes sport and leisure, health and fitness, swimming and swimming instruction, leisure pass memberships, out of school activities and holiday camps for young people, function facilities, club activities and training and development. The Trust also delivers outreach sports and health and fitness services to the wider Sandwell community.  We also manage the Ryland Centre in Bromsgrove.  

The Trust works in partnership with many national and local initiatives and projects which develop opportunities for ordinary people to participate in physical activity.

Sandwell Leisure Trust (SLT) is a social enterprise established as a company limited by guarantee and registered charity managing award winning sport and leisure facilities. We are non profit distributing which means we reinvest 100% of any surplus to maintain, improve and deliver quality services for the whole community and leisure facilities. It receives an annual management fee from Sandwell Council in return for achieving certain performance indicators. The Trust’s key investment priorities include building improvements, marketing and staff development.
The Trust maintains a range of quality standards, awards and accreditations – including the Investor in People Award, the RoSPA Gold Award for Health & Safety and the nationally recognised QUEST accreditation for quality.

Sandwell Leisure Trust wants a Board that reflects the diversity of Sandwell, so we would particularly welcome applications from women, people from ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.

‘Board Member’ is a voluntary position, but out of pocket expenses will be paid.
