Job Description

Active Essex is the driving force in our county to increase levels of physical activity and sport, working to hardwire this into the systems around us, creating significant change in our attitudes and behaviours, and making regular activity part of our daily lives. Everyone benefits from being active - for our personal physical and mental health and wellbeing.

The role of the Chair is to help define the direction of Active Essex and take strategic leadership of the board. The Board provides leadership, takes into account partners interests and sets high standards for the organisation.

Our Chair will be recruited via an open advert process, appointed on a skills basis, are independent and reflect the diversity of the stakeholder landscape of Essex. It is central to the Active Essex ethos that physical activity and sport should be open and accessible to everybody.  We strongly value diversity and strive to ensure that opportunities are available to all but do recognise that there are inequalities in participation opportunities, which affect specific sections of our communities.
