Directors of Jersey Sport Ltd

Sport & Fitness Enquire



Full Description

Jersey Sport was formed in June 2017 as the independent body for the development of sport and active living in Jersey.  After four years of operation and in accordance with the Company’s board succession plan, Jersey Sport is seeking to recruit three volunteer Directors to replace existing members whose term in office has come to an end.

Jersey Sport is a limited company and a registered charity. It is classed as an arm’s length body that receives an annual grant from the Government of Jersey to deliver a range of sport and active living services that support islanders to be physically active.  In addition, it also raises income and fundraises from other sources.

As a Director of Jersey Sport, your role is to oversee the Company’s stewardship, accountability, and leadership, providing clearsighted counsel to ensure complete alignment with the Vision, Values and Purpose.

The Board is also responsible for providing direction to the Company’s management and staff and supporting them in delivering their roles. It has a remit to ensure that the Company is governed effectively, and operated in accordance with its  charitable purpose. 

The Board must also ensure the Company meets its obligations within its Partnership Agreement with the Government of Jersey, upon which its funding is largely based.

The Jersey Sport Board has seven Directors, including a Chairman, who all operate voluntarily.  You will be required to attend a minimum of six Board meetings per annum and be a member of, or Chair, at least one subcommittee that meets regularly throughout the year. Given the dynamic nature of the organisation, there is often a requirement for additional meetings outside of the formal board programme. More information on the governance and performance of Jersey Sport can be found in our 2020 Annual Report.

The Board undertakes an annual review of its performance, assessing both the collective output and also the contribution of individual directors. It has also recently undertaken a skills review, largely to inform the current recruitment process.  So, as well as welcoming applications from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, we are also keen to broaden the skill set of the Board and would therefore be interested in applicants with experience in the following areas;
  • Health Improvement and Wellbeing
  • Education
  • Facility Management
  • Marketing and Communication
Jersey Sport is a representative body, with a key role to advocate for sport and active living and address inequalities. To do this, our Board must be representative of the demographics of our island, and we would encourage applications from those who can provide valuable insight into  sections of our society that are underrepresented in sport or who find it hard to access physical activity.  Importantly, you should be committed and passionate about supporting all islanders to participate in sport and active living.
