Make a difference, join the Board of Volleyball England

Are you looking for an opportunity to give something back to society?

Volleyball England, the sports body for volleyball, beach volleyball and sitting volleyball, is searching for passionate sports fans with strong leadership qualities to join the Board.

The Board can have up to 12 Directors, whose mix of skills and experience are united by a common aim to deliver and develop volleyball in England. We have two current vacancies and some retiring directors so are seeking new candidates to join the Board.

We want to develop a Board from a diverse group of people with a wide range of skills, experience, and knowledge. In particular we are looking for a diversity of candidates with skills in:

  • performance volleyball
  • business development
  • fundraising/income generation
  • insight and data
  • IT and digitisation
  • and change management.  

Prior Board experience is always welcome, but it is not essential – we are looking for committed individuals that share our vision and passion for sport at all levels. Volunteering on a Board can be daunting, and we will provide the relevant support and structures to help the successful candidates succeed. It is a great opportunity to be involved in the sport but also for your own personal and professional development.   

And now has never been a more exciting time to join the Board and contribute to the sport’s journey. We recently launched a new 10-year strategy, The Game Plan – an ambitious shift in direction as we look to work collaboratively with clubs and members to move the sport forward.
