Active Communities is seeking to appoint a new Chairperson to lead and guide the charity through an exciting and ambitious phase of growth.

‘Daring greatly’ has been our mantra, and has seen us successfully secure the asset transfer of the former Johnstone Police Station and £2.2million capital funding to create a community led health, wellbeing, and enterprise hub. Station Seven will open in the Spring of this year.

We have a recovery plan in place for the organisation coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic, and are acutely aware of the increasingly challenging financial environment we are in. We have ambitious plans for the future and recognise the need to diversify our income streams to ensure that we can sustain the organisation and allow us to continue to support our local community needs.

As Chair you will lead our Board of Trustees and work with the CEO and staff to develop the new strategic direction of the organisation as we move into our new premises later this year. The Chair will also ensure robust governance arrangements are in place, monitor the performance of the organisation and bring constructive challenge to influence decision making.

We are looking for someone with drive , enthusiasm and the knowledge , skills, and experience to help us in the next stage of our journey. This is an exciting opportunity to provide visible and effective leadership and join a passionate and dedicated team with community at its heart.

This is a voluntary role, however any reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the carrying role, as board member, will be reimbursed.
