We are looking for someone to become the new chair of the board of trustees at Moseley Road Baths – a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference to our remarkable heritage community enterprise.

Moseley Road Baths CIO has now been operating for two years, and has developed a strong business model to thrive as a successful community pool and heritage venue. Successful fundraising and the commitment of staff and the community means that we are confident to rebuild the enterprise post-Covid. We are anticipating some significant developments as the Baths project expands towards full renovation and a wider range of activities. The CIO is part of a supportive and highly engaged ‘coalition of the willing’ who are all working together and bringing skills, expertise and funding to the mix. The other coalition partners are Birmingham City Council, National Trust, Historic England, the World Monuments Fund and the Friends of Moseley Road Baths. Subject to funding, a seven year project will see our building restored to its former glory and our operations providing a greater range of wellbeing and cultural activities to a wider audience in a way that helps to sustain the building and contributes to the local economy.  

Over the last year we have had eight active, skilled and enthusiastic trustees with a positive working culture. They have a good knowledge of MRB itself and expertise in heritage, project management, finance, fundraising, the local area and community engagement. We have recently recruited two new trustees with skills in volunteer engagement and law.

The current chair, Karen Leach, has been in that role with great enthusiasm since the earliest discussions of a community takeover, but feels that now is the time for the venture to benefit from fresh leadership. 

This will be someone who shares our passion for and active commitment to MRB, with the skills to oversee and guide our transformation over the coming years, supported by the time and expertise of other trustees. We are looking for someone with excellent people skills and experience in medium to large partnership or restoration projects in heritage, leisure or culture.  More information about the role of chair can be found in the role description and person specification:

If you have read the role description and feel you may be suited to the role, please contact the current chair, Karen Leach, for an information pack. Applications will be by CV and covering letter also to Karen.  The closing date for applications is 23rd June 2021.  We look forward to hearing from you!
