London FA Non-Executive Board Directors x2 - Voluntary / London
A fantastic opportunity has arisen at the London Football Association for two non-executive Board Directors to join the Board of Directors. The term of appointment is up to 1st January 2024 initially.
The London FA is responsible for governing, safeguarding and developing grassroots football across our capital city. We are a diverse and inclusive team committed to representing the many rich and varied communities across London. You can view our strategy here.
Independent Non-Executive Director - Finance
We are searching for a qualified Finance professional with significant Commercial acumen. The successful candidate will already be working at a senior level and will provide strategic and financial guidance to the London FA to ensure that the organisation’s financial commitments are met. In addition, you will possess the gravitas and knowledge to provide an independent view of the London FA’s strategy and performance.
Independent Directors should not already be associated with the London FA in any way, either as a London FA Council or general member.
Non-Executive Board Director – Commercial Marketing
In addition, we are seeking a highly experienced Commercial Marketing and Communications professional, preferably with brand management experience. The successful candidate will already be working at a senior level and must demonstrate the ability to influence and collaborate at all levels. This key Board role will partner the London FA executive team to improve and professionalise the brand of the London FA and provide expert advice on how to fully maximise the commercial and brand opportunities of the organisation to support our growth strategy.
This position can either be an independent appointment or from someone already associated with London FA, either as a London FA Council or general member.
Diversity is at the heart of our strategy because it is at the heart of grassroots football in London. We pride ourselves on the increasing diversity of our Board. We encourage applications from the widest range of backgrounds, particularly where there is often under-representation. We are particularly keen to encourage female, black, Asian, and LGBT+ applicants, and applications from those with disabilities and from minority ethnic, faith and racial groups.
