You will have a passion for women's sport/football and the value it can bring to society. You will have experience of influencing at a senior executive level but preferably at Board level. A track record of demonstrable experience in one or more of the following sectors is essential:
You will bring an independent perspective to enhance decision making, always ensuring that the Board acts with integrity. You will ensure that all the different stakeholder interests are considered and will have highly developed interpersonal and communication skills. You will also enjoy being an ambassador for the women's game and the leagues and support them as they continue to grow.
The Board reports directly to the main FA Board and meets approximately 6 times a year in London, plus you will be expected to attend fixtures and events.
INEDs can serve for a maximum of 3 terms of 3 years.
