As one of the UK’s leading ‘sport for development’ organisations, Sport Works supports over 3000 disadvantaged people each year to improve health and education and contribute to more prosperous communities. We operate from ten sites nationally, employ over 75 people and are regarded nationally as a leading organisation within the sector.
Our mission – “providing opportunities for enhancing emotional and physical wellbeing to reduce health inequalities, enhance social mobility and raise achievement” – reflects our commitment to making a real and sustained contribution to our community. Each year our initiatives help transform the lives of thousands of people – improving health, building confidence and teaching the skills to secure employment.
Having recently celebrated our tenth anniversary, we now look forward to the next ten years knowing that we need to continue to harness our strengths to keep making a positive impact. To help us do this, we need new Board members who can provide support and challenge to the Senior Management Team, through strategic debate and decision making. As such we anticipate that regardless of your sector or professional background you will already have a track record at senior level, with insight and experience in good governance.
We are recruiting two positions to the Sport Works Group Board, which comprises both our social enterprise Community Interest Company and our commercial sister organisation responsible for developing sustainable revenue. For these roles we are particularly interested in candidates with a background in either commercial/strategic development or marketing/communication management.
As a community focussed organisation we are also keen to recruit Members from a wide range of backgrounds, whether that is in the commercial, public or not-for-profit sector. As we seek to increase the diversity of our Board, we particularly welcome applications from women.
If you are looking for a rewarding role that will also stretch you, and think you can help us deliver our vision, we would like to hear from you.
