Reach Volunteering are woking with Swimathon, who are seeking a Chair of Trustees to help to develop and deliver the Foundation’s strategy and goals.
The Swimathon Foundation is the owner and custodian of the annual national Swimathon, Open Water Swimathon and School Swimathon events. The main annual Swimathon started in 1986 and has grown to become the world’s largest pool based fundraising swim, bringing together swimmers of all ages and abilities and spreading the joys and benefits of swimming whilst raising vital funds for some of the UK’s most deserving charities.
The Chair will drive the Foundation’s strategic vision for its events and activities, in particular to increase participation in swimming and in charity funds raised and to identify opportunities to maximise support, commercial or otherwise, for its activities.
The individual accepting the role of Chair will sit on the board of the Foundation and its trading subsidiary and work closely with the trustees and the Foundation’s key stakeholders to develop and deliver the Foundation’s strategy and goals.
There will be a handover period with the current Chair to ensure the successful candidate is fully settled into the role.
