Interim Chair of the Board (Independent Non-Executive)

The BEF is urgently seeking an interim Chair of the Board of Directors as part of the process for compliance with UK Sport’s and Sport England’s Code for Sport Governance.

Applicants should possess the commitment, drive and skills to make a tangible contribution. Equally important will be influencing and negotiation skills, with the credibility to build trust and nurture strong relationships with key internal and external stakeholders at all levels.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate significant board experience within a private sector company or sport entity. They should have excellent governance skills, as well as an appreciation for complex partnership and stakeholder relationships.

This position is voluntary, with reasonable expenses, and offers the opportunity for close involvement in an exciting phase in the development of equestrian sport. There are approximately 10 meetings of the Board held per year at Abbey Park, Stareton, Warwickshire.

In line with our Equality and Diversity Policy we are keen to achieve a diverse Board of Directors and would welcome applications from those communities under-represented on the Board, in particular people from ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.
