Job Description

Join the Active Surrey Board

Are you passionate about increasing physical activity levels and enabling everyone in Surrey to realise the benefits that moving more can have on our health, our communities and our county? An exciting opportunity has arisen for a new Board Member with Active Surrey, the county’s not-for-profit Active Partnership.

We are looking for strategic thinkers, with the drive to use the power of physical activity to tackle inequality, to join the Active Surrey Board. In particular, we welcome applications from people with a deep financial or accountancy background.

Our ideal candidate would have:
• Deep Knowledge of Finance and accountancy.
• A passion for physical activity and an understanding of the wider
outcomes it can inspire
• A knowledge of the county and an ambition to tackle inequality in
areas of deprivation

At Active Surrey, we work collaboratively to empower people in Surrey to realise the benefits of a more active way of life, by influencing systems, removing barriers and creating opportunities to get everyone moving more. For more details of the role, please visit www.activesurrey.com/About-us/Governance.

We are committed to achieving greater diversity on our Board and encourage applicants from all backgrounds; we particularly welcome applications from disabled people and from black, Asian and minority ethnic people, who are under-represented in our workforce.
