Midlands Hockey Is Looking to Appoint New Independent Co-Opted Board Members

Midlands Hockey is one of 8 areas across the country which are responsible for the delivery of all hockey across the Midlands; from Adult Leagues to Masters and Junior hockey and all that it takes to deliver an enjoyable and inclusive sport for the many participants, parents and spectators.

Our goal as an organisation is to ensure that everyone in the Midlands area has the opportunity and ability to participate in hockey in a way that is meaningful to them.

To help us enable our goals, we are recruiting two new co-opted board members. The Board is particularly interested to hear from individuals with expertise in one of the following areas:

  1. Legal and/or governance
  2. Equality, diversity and inclusion and/or HR
  3. Marketing and communications, social media and/or partnerships

We are keen to hear from candidates who will bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the board to help enable good governance. You will ideally have some form of leadership experience. However, previous board experience is not essential, nor is it necessary to have current or previous involvement in hockey, although a willingness to get to know the sport and a commitment to enable our vision is.

We are committed to achieving gender parity and greater diversity generally on our Board and encourage applicants from all backgrounds, particularly those from individuals from under-represented ethnic backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ community and those with disabilities.

Time Commitment

A time commitment of approximately one to two days per month is expected inclusive of board meetings, meeting preparations and events and engagements, though this may change over time as the Area becomes more established.

Location

Board meetings are currently held hybrid between Teams and in-person in the Midlands.

Remuneration

Positions are voluntary with reasonable expenses covered.

How to Apply

Candidates wishing to apply should submit a CV (including comprehensive details of key achievements and responsibilities) along with a covering letter which fully addresses the competencies outlined in the role description and person specification. The closing date for applications is 9:00am (BST) on Tuesday 28th June 2022.

Inclusion

Perrett Laver believes that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. A broad range of perspectives, backgrounds and opinions amongst our global community of colleagues is crucial in maintaining our culture of openness, intellectual curiosity and creativity. We take an active role in supporting under-represented communities and groups in becoming better and more fairly represented in the leadership of all organisations. We also know that diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our ability to identify, engage and secure candidates from these groups.

Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity and experience drives us every day – for clients, for candidate identification and in the recruitment, development and retention of colleagues. 

To ensure inclusion on the basis of age, disability, ethnic or national origin, family circumstance, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, political or religious beliefs, race, socioeconomic background and sexual orientation, we would like to specifically invite applications from under-represented groups.
