FOR NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS AT BRITISH CURLING
Curling is one of the most successful British Winter Olympic sports and, with origins dating back to the 16th century, can lay claim to being ‘Scotland’s national sport’. British Curling is the Governing Body responsible for delivering medal winning moments at Olympic, Paralympic, World and European Championships and, in doing so, we work closely with our partners at Scottish, English and Welsh Curling.
Having recently undertaken a fundamental review of our approach and operations, a vibrant team is now in place, balancing new thinking with invaluable experience, focused on the upcoming Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Beijing in 2022, as well as World and European Championships which, in the build up to those events, will provide key measures of progress.
Non-Executive Directors can make a significant contribution to the Board of British Curling, so to enable us to achieve our strategic objectives, we are now aiming to make up to four new appointments to our Board., with candidates ideally possessing a passion and interest in curling, as well as skills and experience in areas such as:
- Strategic financial management and oversight (audit committee experience).
- Elite performance management (in sport/ other performance environments).
- Change management in a business environment.
- Governance in sport – especially with insight to the UK Sport Code for Sports Governance.
- Marketing, commercial, or fundraising experience in non-commercial environments.
To apply for these exciting opportunities, please email Christopher.Knudsen@sportscotland.org.uk with a CV and letter of application demonstrating how you will impact positively on the British Curling Board. Further related information can be found on our website www.britishcurling.co.uk news page.
