Board member recruitment

We're seeking two passionate and experienced individuals to join our board.

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 Active Partnerships operating across England, Leap was established in 2000 as Bucks Sport, changing to Leap in 2014 reflecting our wider remit around physical activity.

We have opportunities for three new board members to join our committed and hardworking board. The board provide expert and strategic guidance to a dedicated and vibrant core team of 14. 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. 21.1% of our residents are classified as inactive and in some areas child inactivity is higher than the national average which causes concern for future generations. Reductions in national funding and dropping National Lottery ticket sales add to our challenges to ensure we can continue to positively impact the health of local residents.

Board members make a valued contribution bringing fresh perspectives and valued contributions from their professional and personal knowledge and experience. We are in particular seeking applications from individuals with Legal, Accountancy or Health background, so 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 Chair, Sue Imbriano 01296
614120 or Leap Director Mark Ormerod 01296 585466

Application deadline 5pm 19th July 2019

If successfully shortlisted your interview will be confirmed to you as soon as possible. The provisional dates for interview are either 29th or 31st July
