British Rowing – Independent Director

From 1 April 2021 the Board of British Rowing will have vacancies for two Independent Directors

The appointments are for a period of three years, with the possibility of a second three-year term. The position is unpaid, but reasonable travel expenses are reimbursed.

The role of the Non-Executive Director is, with the rest of the Board, to contribute constructively to the development of British Rowing’s strategy; to review the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives; to support and monitor the Chief Executive Officer’s performance, and to ensure appropriate succession planning and to do so in the light of British Rowing’s governing documents.

The Board is particularly looking for one applicant with a background in finance and a second applicant with an understanding of risk management. Some experience of chairing committees is desirable as the successful candidates will be chairing either the Audit and Risk Committee or the Finance Committee.
