Multi award-winning sports charity Access Sport is seeking a new Chair to lead the next phase of their growth. The Chair will hold the Board and Executive Team to account for the Charity’s mission and vision. They will provide inclusive leadership to the Board of Trustees, ensuring that each trustee fulfils their duties and responsibilities for the effective governance of the charity.

They are a growing, national charity that believes no one should be excluded from the transformational benefits of sport. Trusted by key partners such as Sport England and The London Marathon Charitable Trust, the charity unleashes the untapped potential of community sports organisations to make sure everyone can be included.

They train, equip and support local volunteers to grow and develop sustainable organisations, and turn learnings into toolkits and models that can be replicated in partnership across different geographies and different sports. They have just launched an exciting new six-year strategy to 2025 and are looking for a dynamic new Chair to lead our excellent board of trustees and the senior management team to achieve the ambitious goals.

If you share their passion for transforming lives and communities through sport, and if you have experience of senior strategic leadership, leading boards to succeed, excellent knowledge and understanding of the sports and charity sectors, an understanding of board diversity and strong inter-personal skills, they would like to hear from you.
