Do you want to make a difference by leading England Netball in an exciting new era? England Netball is seeking two Non-Executive Independent Directors to serve on the board to drive forward the strategic growth and financial sustainability of the sport.
England Netball has had an amazing few years and has transformed itself from a traditional national governing body to a sports business. They have done this by being insight led and putting our customers at the heart of everything they do. Their aim has always been to offer a format of the game that suits all ages and backgrounds from Bee Netball to Walking Netball to the Vitality Roses. England Netball wants to make netball open to anyone with a love for the sport.
Winning Gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games skyrocketed the Vitality Roses and the Sport into the limelight. Winning the prestigious Sporting Moment and Team of the Year at the BBC Sport Personality of the Year Awards has kept that success coming. England Netball was also crowned Sports Organisation of the Year at the BT Sport Industry Awards.
With the successes of the home Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 that took place in Liverpool, the media and broadcast coverage has gone from strength to strength. The semi-final match between England’s Vitality Roses and New Zealand Silver Ferns had viewing figures of over 1 million across all channels. England Netball is seeking two Non-Executive Independent Directors to serve on the board who can continue these successes and continue to drive forward the strategic growth and financial sustainability of the sport.
Following a skills analysis, England Netball has identified the need to seek candidates with a broad commercial skillset who have a dynamic and creative approach to commercialisation. Experience in media, events, music, entertainment or sport industries is desirable.
England Netball is keen to address under-representation throughout the sport and particularly welcomes applications from the BAME community, disabled people and people from the LGBT+ community.
