Vacancy: Health & Wellbeing Director

North Riding FA has a vacancy for the position of Health & Wellbeing Director on the Board of Directors.

The Health & Wellbeing Director will be an advocate for good health and wellbeing in, and through, football and will promote and champion health & wellbeing initiatives that will benefit Board, Members, Staff and the football family across North Riding. 
We are particularly looking for someone with the following skills:

• Engage effectively with stakeholders including leagues, clubs and Local Authorities to support the delivery of health & wellbeing initiatives. 
• Identify, facilitate and develop relationships with non-traditional delivery partners. 

It is important that the Board reflects the communities that we serve and we are therefore particularly interested in attracting people with disabilities and those from ethnic minority communities. 

All candidates will need to have a real empathy with the work of North Riding FA, good business and communication skills and be willing to commit to attending regular Board meetings, as well as strategic and stakeholder events.
