Job Description


Director of the Board


An opportunity currently exists for an enthusiastic and suitably experienced individual to join the Board of Fife Sports and Leisure Trust. This role is ideal for someone wishing to gain board experience and as a stepping stone to further non-executive roles.


The Trust

The Trust is the region’s leading sports and leisure services provider and we deliver health and wellbeing programmes towards fulfilling our vision for “Making a difference by delivering opportunities for people in Fife to become more active”.


The Challenge

These are unprecedented times, after the current lockdown is lifted, to mounting pressure and competition from the private sector. As such, we are seeking a new Board Member with drive and determination, to allow us to capitalise on new opportunities in the post covid-19 era, and help us to deliver affordable and sustainable physical activity opportunities for all the community.


Fitness and Facilities for All

Unlike our private competitors, we, as a charitable trust, are committed to providing facilities and services for all ages and abilities – that includes programmes for babies to older adults, talented athletes, disabled users, people on low incomes and those who have long-term health conditions such as dementia. We will be able to do all this with the support and guidance of our Board, in taking our message out across Fife to engage people about enjoying our facilities, by demonstrating how their support directly impacts on all local communities.


The Board

A Board of Directors governs the Trust and provides strategic direction and support to the Chief Executive and the Executive Management Team. The Board is responsible for the overall supervision and control of the activities of the Trust and the strategic direction and priorities that it sets for the organisation. In addition, the Board is responsible for compliance with the legal and regulatory frameworks within which the Trust operates.


The Board Member

We are keen to appoint two individuals to the Board who have a strong business background with excellent commercial oversight with a focus on business performance and improvement. Submissions of interest are also invited from individuals with relevant industry expertise and experience who feel they can make a positive contribution to FSLT’s sustainable future.
