Independent Non-Executive Director

Salary: Expenses Paid

Location: London

British Rowing is seeking to appoint an Independent Non-Executive Director to its board. Appointments are made for a period of three years, with the possibility of a second three- year term. The position is unpaid, but reasonable travel expenses are reimbursed.

The role of the Non-Executive Director is, with the rest of the board, to constructively challenge and contribute to the development of British Rowing’s strategy; to review the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives; to support and monitor the Chief Executive’s performance, and to ensure appropriate succession planning. As British Rowing focuses on encouraging former rowers to support the sport in order to deliver for current members and protect the future of the sport, the board is particularly looking for applicants with a background in brand and proposition development. We are also very keen to encourage applications from people who have never before considered becoming part of the sport of rowing, and from people from minority communities.

The board meets six times a year. In addition, Independent Non-Executive Directors normally sit on one of the board committees – typically meeting three to four times a year.
