About us Our news Recruitment starts for new Trustees Dame Kelly Holmes Trust are looking to strengthen our Board by recruiting new trustees to take over from existing trustees when their terms of office expire later this year. This is an exciting opportunity for individuals, who are inspired by our mission, to play a leading role in the next phase of our development. Since 2008, we’ve empowered tens of thousands of young people facing disadvantage to realise their full potential. This includes leading a healthy lifestyle, enjoying career success and becoming involved in meaningful activities. We’ve also developed the skills of over 400 world class athletes transitioning out of competition, supporting the long-term welfare of the UK’s athlete community. In particular, we are seeking to recruit a qualified accountant to take over from our current Treasurer and someone with extensive legal experience, ideally in charity law. The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the Trust, developing the organisation’s aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the strategy, business plan, legal and regulatory guidelines.
