Sport for Development Coalition Chair

Chair of the Board

Could you help champion our movement?

The Coalition is a movement of Sport for Development organisations based across the UK who speak with a united voice and passion about the power of sport and physical activity to transform lives.

We are looking to recruit a Chair for our new Board to help lead and champion the movement and guide our future direction.

It is a great time to join us. Building on foundations of collaboration established over a number of years, the last 18 months has seen a significant development of the Coalition, with support from our funding partners including Sport England, Comic Relief and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, we have been able to appoint staff and progress our shared priorities of advocacy, impact and investment.

We are now moving into the next phase of our evolution, enhancing our governance including the creation of a new Board, the development of a new strategy and securing further investment to implement our plans. The appointment of a Chair for our new Board is a critical part of our journey.

Our future chair could be drawn from within the Coalition or from outside the movement, but you will share our passion for the power of grassroots sport to transform lives, be committed to our aims and values, and to equality and diversity.

The role is non-remunerated, but expenses will be reimbursed.

Closing date for applications: noon, Monday 18th November 2019
