About Board Director (2 posts) Voluntary

The Board is tasked with overseeing an ambitious three-year growth plan (2019-22) which will result in Sport Works becoming the market leader of sport/education within the sport/leisure sectors, supporting over 8000 individuals each year by 2022.

Why join the Sport Works Board?

It is an exciting time to join Sport Works, one of the fastest growing organisations in the sector. You will join a motivated and committed Board who are working together to shape the future of a leading sport and education organisation supporting social change. Our work directly impacts the lives of over 3000 individuals, many of whom are disadvantaged and in need of external support.

Given Sport Works' role in both national and regional policy discussions, you will have influence considerably beyond the immediate reach of Sport Works' programmes.

Through your Board role you will expand your contacts, knowledge and skills, and you will connect with a vibrant and committed group of staff, facilitators and learners in the fast-growing 'sport for development' space.

What kind of Board members are we looking for?

As a Board member you will work with our Group Director, fellow Board members and Senior Management Team to contribute towards the future of the organisation. Your work will help ensure that we continue to deliver high quality services whilst executing our ambitious growth plan, which will result in a 300% increase in the number of communities we support each year.

We are looking to appoint two Board members; as follows:

1 x Board member with expertise and experience within the field of strategic development

1 x Board member with expertise and experience within the field of marketing/communications

As well as having the wider professional skills and experiences that we need, we also want a Board that reflects and understands the people that we serve. Previous Board experience is not essential. You will provide ideas, insight, feedback, and will challenge to help increase our reach and impact. You will be supported in fully understanding how to carry out your role and provided training and development as part of our commitment to you.
