Scottish Gymnastics (SG) is the National Governing Body for Gymnastics in Scotland and has embarked on an exciting journey with a 12 year strategy that will see the growth of ‘a strong Scottish Gymnastics, inspiring and nurturing emerging talent’.
The vision is focused upon the delivery of strategic objectives in four key interdependent areas of Clubs, People, Gymnasts and Corporate. Developing the strategic relationship with British Gymnastics will remain an on-going focus to seek opportunities to strengthen commercial partnerships.
To aid the Board on this journey we are looking for a commercially focused candidate who can provide drive and energy to work alongside other Board members, the CEO and staff to ensure that we maximise on commercial opportunities, support the delivery of the new strategic plan and are keen to add value to the Board and the development of Scottish Gymnastics.
It is likely that the successful candidate will have experience of operating in Senior Management or Executive roles within a commercial/business environment. The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate a proven ability to work with senior stakeholders, provide direction and influence the strategic decisions of an organisation.
In liaison with the Chair, Chief Executive Officer and fellow Board members, the Director will support and drive the vision and strategy of SG and monitor progress of the delivery ensuring that necessary financial and other resources are in place to meet its objectives. Contribute to the Board Agenda and enthusiastically debate and sit on sub-committees of the Board where requested by the Chair.
The role requires a commitment of on average six to nine days per year for general duties including board meetings and preparation time. Meetings are held every six weeks normally from September to June. This role is not remunerated, however, out of pocket expenses will be paid.
If you think you are right for SG and this role excites you, please contact Euan Lowe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0131 271 9731 to discuss further.
Scottish Gymnastics is an equal opportunities employer and would welcome applications from a full diverse range of candidates, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability. All appointments are made purely on the basis of merit and ability.
Board Advisory Group Members
Scottish Gymnastics are looking for people to join Board Advisory Groups.
As part of our exciting 12-year journey with the clear vision of ‘a strong Scottish Gymnastics, inspiring and nurturing emerging talent’, we are focussed on delivering strategic objectives in four key, interdependent areas: clubs, people, gymnasts and corporate.
To help the Scottish Gymnastics Board deliver these objectives, we are setting up Board Advisory Groups, to focus on clubs, pathways and governance.
Each group’s role is advisory, making recommendations and providing updates to the board. Their purpose is to help drive the sport in Scotland by identifying priorities from the long-term strategy and annual operating plan.
Within each group, there will be project groups or subgroups to address opportunities or activities over different time periods, as priorities emerge. Working groups will be set up to inform and support the delivery of agreed priorities.
The Clubs Board Advisory Group will focus on commercial opportunities, communication and events.
The Pathways Advisory Group will include the existing HPAG and also focus on performance pathway development and coaches and officials.
The Governance Board Advisory Group will focus on standards, systems and controls alongside the existing Remuneration Advisory Group and the Conduct in Sport Panel.
How can you help?
We need expertise from within our membership to contribute to these groups which will ideally be made up of a mix of board directors, members, and staff to give an informed view on strategic direction, delivery and monitoring the success of the work.
We are looking for people interested in joining any of the three board advisory groups. The role requires a commitment of on average of four meetings per year and is not remunerated.
If you are interested in helping prioritise and shape the work of Scottish Gymnastics, we would love to hear from you.
