Link4Life is commissioned by Rochdale Borough Council to provide cultural services that include arts and heritage, entertainment, fitness and health and sport and leisure.

Established in 2007 it has developed into an organisation that employs around 250 people, welcomes approximately 2 million visits to its facilities a year and has a turnover of nearly £10 million.

A key achievement has been the delivery of over £34 million of investment in new facilities in the borough that includes the construction of three major new centres - Middleton Arena, Heywood Sports Village and Rochdale Leisure Centre.

Over 70 hours a week has been added to opening hours and participation has more than doubled in areas like swimming and fitness.

As a board member, trustees have a statutory duty to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the trust, which is a social enterprise and registered charity.

Board appointments are for one year initially. Chair of the Link4Life Board, Clint Street said, This is a tremendous opportunity to become involved in shaping the future of cultural services in the borough and contributing to the overall quality of life of its residents.

We are looking to attract a broad and balanced range of skills and experience that is representative of the profile of the community as a whole and we will be making a number of appointments to the board.

Open events are being organised on a number of dates where there will be a chance to talk with representatives from Link4Life.

There are sessions at Heywood Sports Village, on Monday 11 November from 4pm-6pm, Touchstones Rochdale, on Thursday 14 November from 3.30-5.30pm, Rochdale Leisure Centre, on Wednesday 20 November from 5pm-7pm, Middleton Arena, on Thursday 21 November from 6pm-8pm and Hollingworth Lake Water Activity Centre, on Monday 25 November from 12noon-2pm.

Application packs are available on the Link4Life website at or can be requested by phone ringing 01706 926268.

The closing date for applications is 29 November and interviews will take place week beginning 9 December.
