Current Board Vacancies
British Skydiving is looking for two members to fill casual vacancies on the Board of Directors from the beginning of March.
This could be your opportunity to play an active part in the Association and help British Skydiving achieve its goals.
We are looking for members who have empathy with our skydiving community, a commitment to improving diversity and equality in the sport and who are able to devote the necessary time to the role (a minimum of 8 hours per month over the next year, with our first full meeting scheduled for 5 March). It can be helpful if you have previous Board-level experience, but that is not essential, as there will be support and training. We are particularly interested in hearing from members who have Legal, Finance, Compliance or HR expertise.
If you are interested in taking up this opportunity, please send your CV and a cover letter setting out what you can offer as a British Skydiving Director by email to our Board Secretary, Lise Moore, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
