Active Lancashire Board Member

Active Lancashire is in a period of exciting transition and growth, as we continue to deliver our innovative Strategy; collaboratively leading and facilitating active lifestyles with our passionate network of delivery partners.

Active Lancashire has nationally recognised expertise and success in leading, developing and delivering exciting and ground breaking activities against our core themes of health and addressing inequalities. We work in collaboration with like-minded independent organisations looking to broaden their contribution to partnerships and meet wider social outcomes. We are well placed to benefit from the opportunities that will emerge through national strategy developments and local initiatives with key health, economic and local government partners. Our aim here is to be a leader of development for the wider sector and to champion new models of delivery and investment in effective partnerships that deliver targeted and sustainable impact, particularly to underrepresented groups.

As the leadership body for Sport and Active lifestyles in Lancashire, we want to ensure that we practice good governance (in line with UK Sport guidelines), supported by a balanced set of skills and expertise that underpin the development of the business and enable us to achieve our visionary expectations.

We are looking for candidates with knowledge and experience of work which supports inclusion, who can enable us to improve communications, relationships and integration of services. We are specifically seeking someone who will bring financial technical skills and will ask intelligent questions as a collaborative member of the Board team. Prospective candidates may have access to important networks or contacts in other sectors relevant to our work and can enhance our strategic and political influence through their gravitas. They may bring a strong geographic overview of sports and physical activities or local communities, but this is not essential.

We are seeking one new Board member to join the Active Lancashire Board, with the option to be part of the Audit and Finance Sub-Committee. We are particularly seeking applicants with knowledge and experience of Financial management.

Additionally, we are seeking candidates who are female and may originate from the Black or Asian heritage community.

  • Interviews will take week commencing 10th June 2024.
