DIRECTORS SNOWSPORT ENGLAND
Snowsport England is the governing body responsible for the development of Snowsports in England, including Alpine, Snowboarding, Nordic, and Freestyle skiing. We run training programmes for school ski trip leaders, and for aspiring ski coaches;
We have a team of development officers to develop grassroots participation around the various clubs and facilities in England. We run an extensive competition programme in England and in Europe, along with supporting athletes who are selected to Team England status.
As the result of a governance review and the retirement of one of our directors, vacancies have arisen. We are seeking exceptional individuals who are passionate about sports at every level (but are not necessarily involved in a professional capacity). The roles require individuals who have the profile and skills to develop strong relationships, to influence key people and partners, and to enhance the capabilities of our own organisation. In short, someone who can make a real difference to the future of Snowsports in England.
Commitments include attending 6 board meetings, visits to facilities, events and partner organisations, representation of Snowsport England at key meetings. We expect the commitment to amount to about 6-8 days per year. The role is voluntary, although out of pocket expenses will of course be met. Board directors are recruited using a skills matrix. We are especially seeking individuals with skills in governance, commercial and general sports management experience.
