Shakespeare Walk Adventure Playground is a small, but friendly local charity that runs a free adventure playground for local children and young people, funded by Hackney Council. We are looking for new people to join our board of trustees.
Being a trustee is a volunteer role, but involves taking responsibility for making sure that the adventure playground is running well, managing the staff and looking after the finances. Training is provided and we have support from our professional advisers.
It involves attending regular board meetings and reading the papers in advance to prepare for meetings.
We are looking for a mix of people with different skills and backgrounds who can work well as a team.
Skills we are looking for include knowledge of play work, youth work, child care or social care, parenting, HR, finance and people who have good knowledge of the local area.
This is a great opportunity for anybody who wants to learn more about management and governance in the voluntary and community sector.
