Providing strategic leadership

The Sport

Board

Motorsport UK is accepting applications for up to five independent non-executive Board Directors. They will form a board consisting of twelve Directors, that also includes representation from the sport’s membership, and Executive team, led by an independent Chair.

The Board’s role is to provide strategic leadership as well as the setting and measurement of goals for the organisation. It is now the ultimate decision-making body for the approval of rules and regulations. Directors are drawn both from the sport and external expert disciplines e.g. Finance, HR etc. The Board meets four to five times per year.

There will also be additional task force/working group engagements for directors on an ad hoc basis. Altogether it will require a commitment of around ten to fifteen days per annum; it is for a term of no more than three years (with potential re-election on two further occasions). The engagement is on a purely voluntary basis, with reimbursement of expenses associated with the role. Directors will benefit from access to unique events and engagement with the sport.

Applications are sought for independent candidates with expertise in areas such as:

  •             Finance
  •             Legal
  •             HR
  •             Communications/Media
  •             Insurance
  •             Governance
  •             Commercial

An interest in motorsport is naturally beneficial, but it is not a requirement to have detailed knowledge or previous engagement with the sport.

How to apply – If you are highly motivated to be engaged with the leadership of motorsport and feel you can make a contribution to the Board; we would like to hear from you. All we need is your CV, highlighting you’re the specific expertise you would bring to the Board; together with a covering letter outlining your ideas for the development and future of UK motorsport. The appointments are initially for up to three years.

Applications

All applications must be e-mailed to Andrea.Richards@motorsportuk.org. All applications will be acknowledged. Please mark clearly the role for which you are applying.
