Better Directors, Better Business and a Better Economy

On Board for Sport Programme – current Board vacancies

This programme exists to match skilled, and often independent individuals, current and future managers and leaders, often from business and the private sector, to Board/Director vacancies within Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs) of Sport. The Scottish Sports Association represents over 50 SGBs – sports of all kinds and sizes – who regularly seek independent/skills-based individuals to sit as a Board member/Director on their Board.

The priority is identifying interested individuals with a skill(s) – rather than experts of the specific sport, often a limited/no prior knowledge of the sport is required! Volunteering on an SGB Board provides a unique opportunity to develop and expand your skills, experiences and networks as well as providing great CPD and as a highlight on your CV.
