Non-Executive Directors (3 voluntary positions available including the role of Chair)

Encompassing the counties of East & West Sussex, as well as the City of Brighton & Hove, Active Sussex is a partnership of public, private and voluntary sector organisations who are collectively committed to increasing participation in sport and physical activity across the county, adding value by working together.

About Active Sussex

Active Sussex is the brand name of the Sussex County Sports Partnership Trust (SCSPT), the countywide organisation for sport and physical activity recognised by the national body Sport England.

Active Sussex encompasses the counties of East and West Sussex, as well as the City of Brighton & Hove. We work with a variety of sectors, groups and partners who want similar outcomes. This includes the charitable, community and voluntary sector, including our activity providers; health and care partnerships and networks; those who support children and young people both within and outside educational settings; local authorities, including public health and wellbeing teams; parks and open spaces; leisure trusts and the gatekeepers to outdoor spaces.

Predominantly funded by Sport England, we contribute to the government’s agenda to increase the number of people participating in sport and physical activity nationally.

The Board oversees delivery of the Active Sussex ‘Getting Sussex Moving’ Strategy 2023-2028, with the executive team tasked with coordinating this work.

Current Vacancies

We are seeking to recruit three (voluntary) Non-Executive Directors, including an Independent Chair, who also act as charity trustees with the skills, experience and qualifications noted below:

  • Financial Management and Accounting
  • Human Resources

Active Sussex aspires to have a diverse Board, and welcomes applications from people who are involved (or would like to be) in our networks, particularly those from ethnically diverse communities, people living with a long term health condition and/or disability and self-identifying women. Given less than 3% of charity trustees are under 30 and as such are missing young people’s perspectives, we encourage young people (over 18) to apply to increase representation of this age group on our board.
