Non Executive Director: Strathmore Rugby Football Club

An opportunity has arisen for a Non Executive Director of Strathmore Rugby Football Club.

We are looking for a motivated individual to assist us with Governance and policy and build on the success of a truly progressive community facing club.

Could this be you ?

Founded in 1933 Strathmore RFC is a rugby club based in Forfar, Scotland. Over recent years the club facilities and activities have grown with the club becoming a community hub used by several groups and charities. On the field the club is working with its sister organisation The Strathmore  Community Rugby Trust (SC047475) to raise playing numbers for both rugby union and rugby league in the area and currently has 4 senior teams ( 2 x male rugby union, 1 x rugby league and 1 x women's team) with the 1 st XV to competing in the National Leagues, and a junior /youths section, the Strathie Shark's of in excess of 130 kids. Off the field the club has worked hard to ensure  it is accessible to the wider community through increased usage of the clubhouse, gym and development area and pitches ensuring the facilities are used to their potential for the entire community and that the club operates in a professional manner while maintaining the club ethos at the heart of its activities. 

Strathmore RFC has enjoyed success both on and off the field of play in recent years, not only gaining promotion to the national leagues, but also picking up national awards in the shape of the SRU/Tennent's Community Club of the Year.

The Management Committee is now seeking to appoint Non-Executive Director to assist with the continuing development of the club off the field. The role would involve attending monthly committee meetings and other ad-hoc sub-committee meetings in an advisory capacity to support the Management Committee in driving the club forward.

Knowledge of rugby union, rugby league or sport in general is not essential. We are looking for individuals with the drive and commitment to help the club achieve its vision over the long term and would particularly welcome applications from individuals with a governance, policy or legal background.
