Chair and Board Trustees
South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture (SLLC) has served South Lanarkshire since 2002 as a leisure trust, expanding to include cultural services in 2010. SLLC’s main aim is to provide facilities for recreation, sport, and cultural pursuits which are of maximum benefit to the community and, in so doing, ensure this provision is truly inclusive. SLLC is responsible for the operation, management and development of indoor and outdoor sport and leisure facilities, community halls, arts venues, country parks, libraries and museum services throughout South Lanarkshire. They are committed to their vision of:
“Healthier, Happier, More Connected Lives” with their Mission being to: “Improve health and wellbeing by offering attractive, affordable activities delivered with warmth, friendliness and individual pride.”
A strong framework is essential to improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of SLLC in the delivery of this mission. The importance therefore of a strong and dedicated board is evident, especially in its role of ensuring good governance. To this end, SLLC are seeking new trustees and a Chair to help guide the organisation in improving health and wellbeing in the community.
The Board meets a minimum of four times per year and new Board members will receive training and development to ensure they feel confident in their appointment and are able to undertake their legal obligations and contribute to our public charitable objectives.
Opportunities are available to be appointed either as a Board member or as Chair. Applicants interested in the role of Chair should have previous board experience, preferably including Chair or Vice Chair experience, as well as a strong understanding of the nature of culture and leisure trusts. All candidates must be committed to the improvement of the South Lanarkshire area and must share in the vision of SLLC of encouraging “Healthier, happier, and more connected lives”.
