Chair of CSW Sport 

This is an exciting time to be involved in our organisation, with a Government strategy targeted at engaging inactive people. We are a County Sports Partnership operating across the sub-region of Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire with a mission to connect partner agencies, charities, service providers and businesses to work together in new ways to tackle this challenge. To help us design and implement that transformational change, we are looking for a new Chair for our Board. You will be a talented strategist, with an ease in building effective relationships and an appetite to help develop and refresh our Board team. You'll be happy to meet periodically with our principal funder, Sport England, and our host agency, Coventry City Council. You'll have relevant skills – perhaps in corporate services – developed in a commercial or educational environment. If you'd like to make a difference to the lives of many people, we'd encourage you to consider applying. We only pay expenses for national travel; the reward lies in the social changes you can make across the sub-region.

The Chair provides strategic leadership to the Board and to the organisation as a whole, working with the Director to ensure that the design of the Board's work supports achieving CSW Sport's outcomes. • The Chair ensures that the Board delivers its key strategic role and provides effective governance of the organisation, securing its viability and sustainability, and looking to maximise its effectiveness, within the scope of its Terms of Reference. • The Chair plays a lead role in shaping the Board's development as a strong team, working in a complementary way with the Director's leadership of his or her team, to encourage quality discussions and debate. • The Chair contributes to the promotion and positioning of the organisation with a wide range of external stakeholders.
