New ORA Trustee Board members required

The ORA Trustee Board is seeking to add new trustees to the team who run the charity. These voluntary roles are crucial to helping us move forward our goals of seeking to grow participation in sport while being a valued community for our members and wider Merton Park neighbours.  Each trustee would actively be involved in one or more areas of our strategy, working to drive initiatives forward that will make a real impact.

Who do we need?

Enthusiastic individuals who offer new skills and experience which will add to the existing team members on the board that runs the Old Rutlishians’ Association. We need candidates who are passionate and care about what Old Ruts seeks to provide to its members and who want to make initiative happen.

What skills and experience are needed?

We are looking for a range of skills, including experience in:

* hospitality and catering
* building and property management
* marketing & communication
* fund-raising
* charity compliance, finance & governance
* board level executive leadership experience
* grounds management

This list is not exhaustive – what’s important is having a can-do attitude and getting resourceful people on board who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get stuck into whatever needs doing.

What next?

Candidates should submit a CV (including details of key achievements and responsibilities) along with a covering letter which addresses the competencies outlined in the role description and person specification.

Please send all applications to: and

What else?

If you don’t feel you can commit to becoming a trustee, but still want to help the club, do
please get in touch. This is a volunteer-run club and there’s always so much work to be done
and only so many people doing it, so new volunteers are always welcomed with open arms to join one of our committees, lend your expertise to a particular sporting section, or just help out on an ad-hoc basis.

Whatever your skills – admin, finance, social media, IT, maintenance, electrics, plumbing, building, general handywork, Charity Commission experience, coaching helpers – please step up and help us improve our Club.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 30 May 2022.

The ORA recognises the value of diversity in all its forms at all levels of the organisation, including at Board level. We celebrate its role in the creation of an inclusive workplace culture and thrive on the range of experience and insight diversity brings to our organisation.
