Vero HR Ltd is hiring a

Trustee - Living Sport

Huntingdon, United Kingdom

About the opportunity:

We are the internal HR and recruitment partner with Living Sport, an independent charity focussed on improving the health, happiness, and wellbeing of the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

We are presenting an exciting opportunity for highly committed and passionate professionals to join their Board of Trustees, a team dedicated to shaping the future of Living Sport, instrumental in guiding continued success and growth.

Being a Trustee of Living Sport is not merely a title; it’s an opportunity to be at the forefront of making decisions that directly impact Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The Board of Trustees play an essential role in guiding strategic direction, ensuring financial sustainability and governance, and upholding the principles that have made Living Sport one of the leading Active Partnerships.

Trustees are also encouraged to utilise and develop their own unique skills and experience by joining one of their sub-committees or becoming a Board Champion in a specific area, offering advice and guidance, and driving improvements in said topics. 

As a minimum, Trustees are required to prepare for and attend four Board meetings a year. These are two-three hours and are a variety of in person, hybrid, and remote discussions. Joining a sub-committee or becoming a Board Champion would be an additional commitment of four remote meetings per year, usually for one hour, plus ad hoc time to support members of the staff team.

We are in search of individuals who bring a diverse range of experiences, perspectives, and skills. We are particularly keen to hear from applicants who have experience in the health and wellbeing sector or in leading on Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.

We would be keen to hear from applicants with the following skills and experience:

  • Proven track record in leadership roles.
  • An understanding on the environment in which Living Sport operates, both as a charity and an Active Partnership.
  • An understanding of the role of a Trustee and charity governance.
  • Working or voluntary experience within the physical activity sector.
  • Demonstrable interest in the Health and Wellbeing sector.
  • Ability to develop good relationships with colleagues on the Board, the wider staff team, and within local partnerships.
  • Respect and appreciation of the views of others.
  • A strategic thinker.
  • Ability to motivate and inspire others.


Trustees give their services on a voluntary basis and receive no remuneration. We do however offer reimbursement of reasonable travel and subsistence expenses.

If you believe in our vision and are willing to dedicate your expertise and time to further our cause, I warmly invite you to consider this opportunity.

We are committed to building a diverse organisation that represents the communities we serve and promotes an inclusive culture in all aspects of our work. We welcome applications from all who have the skills and experience to support the work of Living Sport.
