Independent director - Volleyball England Board

Volleyball England are looking to recruit an Independent Director, for an initial two-year term, and are now inviting applications.  

Our Independent Directors will be recruited through an open application process and will be managed by our Nominations Committee based on who meets the skills and experience we are looking for.  As a result, in order to apply for this role, you must be able to demonstrate that you have no association with Volleyball England at the time of your application. 

With our new governance structure, vision and mission, we need individuals who can help develop and maintain Volleyball England’s strategic focus. You would need to be able to make a commitment to Volleyball England and devote the necessary time, have strategic vision, independent judgement, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to speak your mind.

We are looking for an Independent Director who has skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • HR
  • Finance

Ideally, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate:

  • An impressive track record of success in the private, public and/or voluntary sector
  • The ability to operate at Board level of a National Governing Body
  • A good understanding of the role that sport plays in society today
  • Ability to think creatively and strategically;
  • The skills to challenge current thinking at Board level
  • A clear commitment to improving diversity and equality and understanding the needs of under-represented groups in sport
  • A good understanding of the UK’s sporting landscape – including the new Code of Good Governance as directed by UK Sport & Sport England

In line with our Equality and Diversity Policy and the new UK Code for Sports Governance, we are keen to achieve a more diverse Board of Directors and would welcome applications from those communities or segments of the UK population who are currently under-represented on the Board.

Who can be an Independent Director?  A person is independent if they are free from any close connection to the organisation and if, from the perspective of an objective outsider, they would be viewed as independent. A person may still be deemed to be ‘independent’ even if they are a member of the organisation and/or play the sport.

Examples of a ‘close connection’ include: they are or have within the last four years been actively involved in the organisation’s affairs, e.g. as a representative of a specific interest group within the organisation such as a sporting discipline, a region or a home country;  they are or have within the last four years been an employee of the organisation; or they have close family ties with any of the existing directors or senior employees.

We offer to cover travel expenses and will provide a full induction to the work of Volleyball England. You will be expected to attend  a minimum of four of the scheduled six Board meetings a year, which are normally held at the Volleyball England offices at the Sports Park in Loughborough. Increasingly we are establishing committees to oversee and drive our work, and support the work of our CEO and SMT. In addition, we would encourage your attendance at a number of Volleyball England meetings and events such as our AGM, sub group meetings and meetings involving the membership.

For more detailed information about Volleyball England and a list of the current Directors, please visit our website.  For an informal discussion about the role of Independent Director please contact our CEO Janet Inman on 07766540735.
