Join our Board

Back to News

Posted 4th June 2018

Yorkshire Sport Foundation has a fantastic opportunity to join our Board to make a real difference to people’s lives in South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire through physical activity and sport.

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 HERE.

Closing date for applications is Friday 29 June 2018.
