On Board for Sport

This area highlights the opportunities available within our member organisations to volunteer as a Director/Member on their Boards/Committees. These vacancies are often targeted for skills-based Directors and/or individuals who are independent of the Scottish Governing Body.  Increasing the diversity of board members is a key ambition.

Board vacancies present excellent opportunities for the development of new/existing skills, meeting new people, new networks and an unrivalled CPD opportunity to make a genuine difference to sport in Scotland. Each vacancy highlights the benefits of and requirements for each post and it should be noted that a detailed knowledge of the specific sport is often not necessary.

Scottish Canoe Association - Finance Director & 2 x General Directors

The Scottish Canoe Association (SCA) is one of Scotland's leading sports governing bodies. We are volunteer led and much of what we do is carried out by volunteers whether in clubs, committees or on the Board of Directors.

Our current Finance Director reaches the end of their second three-year term at this year’s AGM in November and we actively seek a new person to take on this important non-executive role. In addition, two General Directors will be appointed.

Closing date: 30th June 2021

Inclusive Skating - Trustee(s)

Inclusive Skating is seeking to supplement the Board of Trustees with up to three individuals to work with the Board in developing a further exciting phase of growth.  Ideally interested candidates will bring a background in finance, fundraising or membership organisations and have experience or strong empathy with those with impairments or physical disabilities, and an understanding of the world of sport and/or the skating community.

British Kickboxing Council - Treasurer

The British Kickboxing Council's primary goal is to be recognised as the national governing body for the sport here in the UK, increasing participation, improving engagement with all areas of the wider community and developing each Discipline of Kickboxing from grassroots to elite performance.

As Treasurer, you will be responsible for ensuring the effective and legal management of funds and project budgets within the BKC. Although the role is not completely autonomous, as decisions which impact either the sport or the BKC must be put to a vote, your voice will be heard at AGMs, EGMs and regular ongoing discussions regarding the governance of the BKC, and you will be given the chance to propose and manage your own projects. Our new Treasurer will help to shape the financial future of our organisation and our sport across the UK.
