Sport, adventure and physical activity is a crucial component in developing RAF personnel into a world-leading fighting force. But for personnel to reach their potential, they must participate in the right environment, the RAF Sports Federation is central to providing that environment. Working alongside our partners in RAF Sport, we deliver a range of professional services to help ensure those 49 RAF Sports Associations can focus on that core purpose.
Location: Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
Time Commitment: Approximately 10 days per year
Since our inception we have driven an ethos of partnerships. Enjoying a close relationship with our RAF colleagues, we are in a position to help take sport in the service to another level. In doing so, we will be arming our personnel to face the unique challenges that living and working in an armed service can bring.
We are keen to broaden the skills and recruit new people to strengthen the existing board and drive the RAF Sports Federation forward. The RAF Sports Federation is seeking to appoint new trustees to join its trustee board and be formally appointed as soon as practicable after the recruitment process is complete.
We would be particularly interested to hear from people who have held a position of responsibility in the third sector and/or private sector with an expertise in one or more of the following areas:
• Finance: financial management and charity accounting experience with a ACA/ACCA/CIMA chartered accountant qualification. Risk and charitable governance experience desirable. • Fundraising/Income Generation: commercial acumen, broad networks and connections.
If you do not have expertise in the above areas but feel you have other qualities which would be of interest, please get in touch.
