This is an exciting role directly connected to the purpose and passion of the charity’s work and a rare opportunity to join a committed and driven team. It will require a passion to help young people, a keen interest in sport, a good understanding of the charity sector and strong interpersonal skills.
Sound commercial experience is of particular interest with strengths in fundraising/business development, marketing communications (especially digital) and strategy planning. You will have experience in management and leadership roles.
You will join the Board (currently made up of seven Trustees) in supporting the charity’s work, planning for the future and ensuring the highest standards of integrity and good governance. You can make a difference.
The minimum commitment as a Board member will be to attend four board meetings per year (typically held in London) plus one half-day induction session and one half-day strategy planning session; there will be an additional time commitment as you become involved with one of SportsAid’s sub-committees and in supporting the promotional work of the charity. Board positions are unremunerated but reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.
