British Cycling has begun the recruitment process for a non-executive director with marketing and commercial expertise.
After major successes across all of its programmes – from the Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspiring over one million more people to ride regularly, British Cycling’s challenge is to continue to thrive.
British Cycling’s president Bob Howden says:
“This is a rare opportunity to make a lasting contribution to this country’s leading sports governing body. British Cycling has enjoyed considerable success in recent years but we have our sights set even higher.”
The move follows the recruitment of two non-executive directors in April last year and will complete a process that began with a change to British Cycling’s governance rules in November 2013.
Along with other members of the Board of Directors, the successful applicant will be involved in shaping the strategic aims of the organisation, providing creative, informed and constructive input.
British Cycling is keen to increase the diversity of its board and particularly welcomes applications from individuals from under-represented groups.
The post is for a three year term, effective from 1 April 2015. Post holders will be required to attend approximately six board meetings per annum as well as the annual National Council meeting. Reasonable out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed in line with the organisation’s expenses policy.
