Help to Shape the Future of Welsh Sport


Building on its Vision for Sport in Wales, and the delivery of its Community Strategy, Wales’ national sports organisation is to further invest in the development of new thinking.

Sport Wales is looking for individuals who share a passion for the growth of sport in Wales to join the Sport Wales Advisory Group. There are currently a number of positions available.

The Group is responsible for providing the Sport Wales Board with advice and options on future policy direction. The Advisory Group will focus on identifying how to influence sports appeal amongst the less active, in line with the Vision for Sport in Wales and the Community Sport Strategy. In fulfilling this responsibility, the Advisory Group will utilise its report ‘Acting Today for an Active Tomorrow’ as a key reference.

The Group will be expected to define its own working culture, in line with Sport Wales’ move to becoming more innovative and entrepreneurial.

Applications are actively sought from individuals working in non-sporting sectors, whilst we also hope to attract applications from those already working in, or involved in the sporting sector.

The Chair and Members will be appointed, on a voluntary basis, for a term of 2 years, with an opportunity to extend for a further term. All will be expected to attend approximately 4 meetings per annum. All reasonable expenses will be recompensed.

Interested candidates should send a covering letter and CV to:- Sport Wales Manager [email protected]

Closing date for applications: 5pm Friday, 21st Feb 2015.

Short interviews will take place w/c March 2nd 2015
