Do you believe in the power of sport to change lives? Then why not take a step to changing your own life and join the board of sportscotland.

Do you believe in the power of sport to change lives?

Then why not take a step to changing your own life and join the board of sportscotland.

The national agency is looking for three people with a passion for sport, who see the value in creating a culture where sport is for life and who believe in an active Scotland where everyone benefits from physical activity.

The benefits of sport are immense. It keeps people active, supports health and wellbeing, and helps develop knowledge and skills. It also helps strengthen our communities and contributes to Scotland’s economy.

As a member of sportscotland’s Board you can help everyone in Scotland enjoy these benefits.

Be part of the world class sporting system and have your voice heard in building sport for the future. Be part of a system which makes the best use of all Scotland’s sports facilities as well as its great outdoors and helps people to take part at whatever level they choose.

Existing Board member Coral Bain said: “This is a Board and an organisation which listens, which values you and has a real sense of what personal values you bring. If you are passionate about sport then it’s the right place to be.”

What we need:

  • Enthusiastic people with an interest in sport
  • Good communication and listening skills
  • Team players who can make informed decisions

What you will get:

  • Immense satisfaction in supporting the world class sporting system
  • An understanding of all aspects of sport from grassroots to podium
  • A chance to shape the future of sport in Scotland

As a Board member, you will support the Chair in ensuring sport and physical activity contributes to Scottish Ministers’ ambitions for Scotland and in particular, those set out in the Active Scotland Outcomes Framework, which are underpinned by equality for all.

Appointed on merit; committed to diversity and equality.
