The RYA, as an equal opportunity and disability confident employer, celebrates and welcomes diversity in all its forms and believes that a diverse workforce boosts innovation, productivity and creativity.
We are dedicated to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion and strive to be an inclusive and diverse workplace where everyone can be their authentic selves. We would particularly encourage applications from ethnically diverse candidates who are currently underrepresented at the RYA.
There is no requirement for a Board Election to be held in November 2022. However, the RYA is seeking to appoint a new non-executive director to replace Christophe Boulanger whose term ends at this year’s AGM in November.
The RYA is looking for an enthusiastic and forward-thinking candidate to join the RYA Board. In particular we are seeking applicants with deep insight of grass roots dinghy sailing, experience of elite sports at a strategic level or safeguarding. Applicants who also have a legal background or a deep knowledge of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion would be of particularly interest to the RYA Board.
The RYA’s Board of Directors supervises the management of the RYA’s business and discharges the responsibilities of the directors under the Companies Act 2006. It meets eight or nine times a year, either virtually or physically in London or Southampton. The role may mean an increased investment of time at certain times of the year and you may be asked to invest time in other projects.
