About this opportunity

This is a great opportunity to influence the way sport and physical activity is developed across Kent and Medway. Physical activity can transform lives and reduces the risk of developing serious illnesses, so our vision is to help ‘more people, to be more active, more often’.

The Board is looking to recruit new members with experience in the voluntary, public or commercial sector involved in one or more of the following: community development, children and young people, health, adult social care and active environments.

We are particularly interested in individuals who have the skills and knowledge of working with ethnically diverse communities, disadvantaged or under-represented communities and people living with a disability or long-term health conditions. Prospective Board Members will demonstrate a strong commitment to physical activity coupled with networking and influencing skills, and the ability to think creatively.

To achieve our goals the Board is actively seeking a diverse membership and particularly welcomes applications from anyone who can meet the criteria, regardless of gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status or religion.
