Salary: Currently no remuneration available
The BKC is a non-profit organisation, with a Board of Directors which consists of senior members and representatives from a variety of Kickboxing associations and an Executive Board made up of sector specialists and passionate supporters of our sport. Our immediate goal is the recognition of Kickboxing under the Sports Councils and to gain official National Governing Body status for the BKC. To that end, we have been working for nearly 10 years to create a system of governance, guidance and support for the sport, agreeing upon its direction and development by way of democratic processes which aim to give control over the sport to the sport itself.
About The Role
As a Non-Executive Director you will be given free reign to provide support, insight and advice on all of our projects, governance processes and general operations. NEDs are expected to provide critical analysis of our management of the sport, the Board, clubs, athletes and all other aspects of our role as the governing body for Kickboxing, with the view of ensuring that we are acting in the best interest of the sport and meeting our goals of developing Kickboxing across the UK. This will include attending meetings (AGMs, Skype calls etc.) and may also include meeting with both internal and external stakeholders, partners (both current and prospective), while working to ensure that we continue to move towards our goal of official recognition for the sport, and in turn for ourselves as its registered NGB.

● Acting as a “sounding board” for ideas, project proposals and development programs

We are looking for someone with experience in sports governance, grassroots development, participation drives, fundraising initiatives, sponsorship acquisitions, social media management, inclusion initiatives or the creation of lasting and effective partnerships with brands, government, or other sporting bodies. If you have a passion for sport and believe you can bring something unique to the table, we want to hear from you.

The term is 3 years, with a maximum of 3 terms for the role.
