Background

RTC Sports is a registered Charity which runs the RTC Sports and Leisure Centre, at Otterburn in rural Northumberland, on behalf of the Rede, North Tyne and Coquet valley local communities. We are also a limited company.

We have a small number of part-time Staff, a Steering Group that helps us know what the local community want, and Volunteers who help to maintain the building and grounds or run events and classes. We are in a good financial position and pay for a Bookkeeper and coaches.

The RTC Centre works to

  • Support an active community, and to be community-led
  • Provide facilities for recreation and leisure time, for the purpose of relaxation and to improve conditions of life for our local communities
  • Promote physical and mental wellbeing, by offering physical, social and arts activities, as well as opportunities to volunteer for the community

 

Trustee characteristics we are looking for today

We are seeking three Trustees. We would particularly welcome people, of all ages and backgrounds, who have skills in the financial, digital and marketing areas. If a person prefers to oversee, then the Chair or Company Secretary positions are also possible. Board meetings are usually monthly, on an evening between 7 and 9, the day is flexible.

We hope to recruit active, responsible people who enjoy working as a team, and who will help us to continue to increase the frequency and diversity of our current offering.

 

This is a great time to be joining us, as we are moving forward rapidly.  We're in the midst of a rebranding too, and the logo you see here is our new one.  For now, you can still see the old logo on our website: http://rtcsports.co.uk/

BRIC (Blyth Resource & Initiative Centre) has been providing employment support and education to the local community for over 30 years. The services and activities BRIC provides are in direct response to the needs of centre users and the local community, and through partnership work with other local organisations. BRIC has a client base of over 5,000 unemployed people.

Although BRIC’s services fall into four main categories – IT Education, English & Maths, Employability and a Drop-in service; we have addressed many social issues outside of our own expertise that our clients have been faced with. Through partnership work with other local organisations, as well as through our own commitment to service users, we have been able to provide a wider support service to enable people to make significant and positive differences to their lives. Improving their skills and abilities, mental and physical well-being and by providing opportunities to make friends and socialise, enables service users to become more active members of the community.

We have a vacancy for a Treasurer to maintain an overview of the organisation’s affairs, ensure its financial viability and ensure that proper financial records and procedures are maintained. We are particularly looking for someone with financial qualifications and experience; some experience of charity finance, fundraising and pension schemes; the skills to analyse proposals and examine their financial consequences, who is prepared to make unpopular recommendations to the board and has a willingness to be available to staff for advice and enquiries on an ad hoc basis.
