Overview

Do you want to be part of a Board that strives to make London the most physically active city in the world?

The Mayor of London is inviting applications for the roles of London Sport Board Chair and Trustees. We are looking for senior leaders who are passionate about Sport in London and have a range of insights and expertise.

London Sport was created by the Mayor of London, Sport England, and London Councils to help London to become the most physically active city in the world. To get us some of the way there we have an ambitious target of helping to get 1,000,000 Londoners to be more physically active by 2020. Making this happen relies on hundreds of different organisations uniting towards a common goal by working better together, which is London Sport’s role. Between us, we need to improve the opportunities for Londoners to lead an active life by being more collaborative, more efficient, more diverse and more innovative.

As the first stop shop for physical activity and sport in London, it is our job to bring everyone together, to put London’s Blueprint for a Physically Active City into action, and to help make London a stronger community for everyone.

The new Chair will lead the Board in an exciting stage of London Sports mission.  With a passion for grassroots physical activity and sport, the ideal candidate will be a confident communicator and public speaker, with a proven ability to think strategically and influence senior stakeholders in order to present the vision of London Sport.  Candidates who demonstrate a strong commitment to equality and diversity would be at an advantage.

The new Trustees will enhance the membership through their ability to provide strategic leadership to the organisation and advise the Chair, Trustees and the Executive, to make sure the Charity operates within the rules and guidelines set out in the Charity’s governing documents and relevant legislation and will contribute to helping the Charity to achieve its mission.  Candidates will need to have strong knowledge of sport or physical activity policy and research, of the social and political environment and of London communities.

London’s diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to reflect London’s diversity in all Board appointments. The aim is that the London Sport Board contains a broad range of experience and reflects London’s diversity.  We welcome applications from all sections of the community, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
