Join our board

As a co-operative society, HF Holidays is governed by a Board of 12 volunteer Directors, elected from the Society's members. Our Board set the strategic direction of HF Holidays, and are made up of members who have a passion for walking and activity holidays in both the UK and abroad. Collectively, our Board aim to reflect the interests and background of the wider membership. Individually, Directors offer professional or commercial expertise.

Join the Board of Directors in 2021

The process for nominating and standing for election to the Board of Directors opens each year in the month following the Annual General Meeting and closes on 31 December. To be eligible to stand for election, you must be a member of HF Holidays of age 18 or over, and you must be nominated by two fellow members. If you know a member who you think would make an ideal candidate, you could encourage them to stand.

Do you have the skills and experience to join our Board?

Each year, there are three vacancies created as Director's retire from a four-year term. Being a Director of HF Holidays is a voluntary, but important, enjoyable, worthwhile and rewarding role and the Board is keen to encourage members, especially our female members, to consider standing for election.

What we're looking for

We particularly welcome applications from those with the following skills and experience:

1. Direct experience of working at management level in a significant size business

2. Senior-level experience of at least one of the following: hospitality management, accountancy, human resource management, information technology, legal knowledge/qualifications, marketing & sales; procurement, property development & management, travel & tour operation experience
