Successful applicants will be expected to take an active role in ensuring the organisation’s work towards its key missions, objectives and goals.

Trustees are asked to commit to an average of 8 to 10 meetings a year and occasional  subgroups and  events. They will be expected to remain well informed about KHL and its activities, taking a personal interest in and collective responsibility for its sustainable growth.
