Owned by Sport England, Plas y Brenin is managed on their behalf by the educational charity, the Mountain Training Trust (MTT).
MTT’s primary aim is the advancement of education, training and skill development for safe conduct within outdoor environments. The charity is governed by a Board who has overall responsibility for the performance and direction of the charity, working within the Trust’s Memorandum and Articles. Led by an Independent Chair, the board is made up of 11 Trustees, including the three founding members and a further seven independent directors. The Board shapes the strategic development of the organisation, providing creative, insight-led and constructive input.
We are now seeking to appoint a new Board Secretary, who will support the Chair and Chief Executive in facilitating the activities of the Board. The position will require attendance at 4 Board Meetings per year, a Board development day (typically the day following a Board meeting) and two Governance Committees. The Board meetings and development day are usually held at Plas y Brenin, with the Governance Committees via teleconference. Remuneration reflects the skills and experience of the appointee. The appointment will be on a contract basis for two years and then annually renewable. Our preference is that you would live within an easy commute of Plas y Brenin, Snowdonia so that you are available to meet with the Chair and Chief Executive to set the agenda and then attend each Board session.
