S&you are pleased to be supporting Street Games, one of the UK's leading "sport for development" charities as they seek to find Trustees for their Board.

Who Street Games are looking for?

Trustees are volunteer board members who set the strategic direction, provide advice and ensure the charity's work continues to advance its strategic objectives.

Previous board/trustee experience is not necessary. We welcome applications from all ages and backgrounds. StreetGames has a target of gender parity on our Board and we would therefore particularly welcome applications from women. We are committed to increasing representation and broader diversity of individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds and individuals with disabilities, as well diversity of thought and lived experience.

Additionally, we would like to add representation from groups that we serve as a charity e.g. individuals from or who grew up in low-income families.

Our new Trustees will ideally have skills in one or more of the following areas:

  • Welfare and Safeguarding
  • Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
  • Audit
  • Health
  • Political Influencing
  • PR and Media
  • Income Generation
  • Sport Improving Lives

What's in it for you?

  • The chance to transform young people's lives through sport
  • Opportunities to make strategic decisions and develop new skills
  • Influence to shape innovative projects
  • Induction, training and support

Reimbursable expenses (travel and accommodation bookings may also be made on your behalf)

A Trustee would normally serve an initial term of 4 years with the potential to be re- appointed for a further 4 years. The expected time commitment is 4 Board meetings per year held in person in London, Manchester or Cardiff on rotation (virtual attendance is available) and 3 virtual meetings, one full day strategy away day and some committee work plus a review meeting with the Chair and appropriate preparation time to fully participate in these meetings.

Application Process

Please refer to the Candidate Information Pack which can be found on the Street Games website and navigate to the vacancies page

StreetGames are happy to accept either a cover letter or a maximum 2-minute video in addition to a comprehensive CV.

Prospective candidates are also welcome to have an informal conversation with a StreetGames trustee, if you would like to take up this opportunity or have any other questions please contact Emma Rodell, Governance & Compliance Manager ((url removed)).

The deadline for receipt of applications shall be 9am 11th March 2024. Candidates shall be shortlisted 18/19th March with panel interviews taking place preferably in London on 25th or 26th March 2024.
