Our Board is made up of senior, talented leaders with a variety of skills and experience. In particular we are currently looking for someone with expertise and knowledge in marketing and communications.
We are one of 43 County Sports Partnerships in England, working closely with and primarily funded by Sport England, and a Company Limited by Guarantee with Charitable status.
Our purpose is to encourage more people to be active and play sport and do this through supporting our partners through connecting, influencing and providing opportunities to be active.
A third of us are inactive – as a charity we work closely with partners to help individuals and communities overcome barriers and build healthy habits for life. Our work is increasingly focused in tackling inequalities and reducing inactivity in areas where it is needed most.

Board members will serve on a voluntary basis, although normal expenses will be paid. We have six Board meetings per year and you will be invited to other events and meetings throughout the year.
If you are interested we'd love to hear from you. The Board member pack and application process is available in the 'supporting documents' section below.
Closing date for applications is Friday 29 June 2018.
We recognise and embrace the benefits of having a diverse Board, and see increasing diversity at Board level as an essential element to achieve our stated aims and objectives. A truly diverse Board will include and make good use of differences in the skills, experience, background, race, gender and other qualities of Board member. As a reflection of this commitment we will maintain a balance of no more than 70% of any gender.
These differences will be considered in determining the makeup of the Board and be balanced appropriately whenever possible. All Board appointments are made on merit, in the context of the skills and experience required to fulfil its responsibilities.
