BRITISH TABLE TENNIS ASSOCIATION FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES (BTTAD)
INDEPENDENT NON –EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS
BTTAD is the recognised National Governing Body for Disability Table Tennis in the UK. Following a major review and subsequent investment from UK Sport, 4 medals were achieved at the London 2012 Paralympics and at least a similar medal tally at the Rio Games in 2016 is anticipated. In addition, BTTAD runs a domestic competitions programme and participates successfully in other international events . It seeks to work closely with Home Country Associations and Disability Organisations to influence and develop disability table tennis domestically and internationally.
Following a review of the governance structure in early 2014, BTTAD is now a charitable company limited by guarantee and wishes to appoint 2 Independent Non- Executive Directors in addition to the 3 Non- Executive Directors elected by BTTAD members. Board meets up to 4 times a year normally in Sheffield or the Midlands. This is a voluntary role but reasonable expenses will be paid for travel and other out of pocket expenses.
We are looking for individuals who can contribute to the strategic leadership of the sport and provide appropriate leadership and support to the executive team. The appointments would be for an initial period of 4 years, but members would be eligible to stand for reappointment at the end of their first term to a maximum of 8 years. Previous experience of working on a board is not essential; however all members are required to understand and demonstrate their commitment to the vital role the board plays in developing the sport and help the organisation to meet its legal and regulatory requirements.
If you are passionate about sport and would welcome the opportunity to work with us, please forward a brief CV and a one page supporting statement which outlines your relevant skills and experiences to the Company Secretary, Mike Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30th with interviews held in December and appointment starting in January 2015.
