Board member recruitment

We're seeking two passionate and experienced individuals to join our board, alongside a new Chair.

Can you help us improve people’s lives through physical activity and sport?

Leap is a dynamic, high performing and forward thinking organisation passionate about improving lives by helping people get and stay active in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. Part of a network of 43 County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) operating across England, Leap was established in 2000 as Bucks Sport, changing to Leap in 2014 reflecting our wider remit around physical activity.

With two existing members and our Chairman completing their maximum terms, we have opportunities for two new board members, alongside a new Chair to join our committed and hardworking board.
The board provide expert and strategic guidance to a dedicated and vibrant core team of 16. Together we have a proven record for delivery of both local and national commissions and have built a strong network of partners which enable us to positively impact resident’s lives.

However there is still much to be done, 37% of residents in Bucks don’t meet the recommended guidelines for weekly physical activity levels and high childhood obesity levels cause great concern for future generations.

We have a strong desire to have a Board reflective of our local community, ensuring that equality, diversity and inclusion run through everything we do.  We are specifically seeking board members with skills and expertise from the fields of law, digital marketing, fund-raising and sectors engaging older people.

Together with reductions in national funding, and dropping lottery ticket sales, we face challenges to ensure we can continue to positively impact the health of local residents. If you can add a fresh perspective and valued contribution to help ensure Leap’s sustainable and long term future we would love to hear from you.

For an informal conversation about the position please contact Board Chairman, Roger Fennemore MBE 01908 586326 or Leap Director Mark Ormerod 01296 585466

The closing date for applications is 17:00 5th April, and interviews are scheduled for 23rd and/or 24th April 2018.
