Archery GB Seek Independent Directors

Archery GB logo

Archery GB is the recognised Governing Body for archery in the UK. It has a rapidly growing membership, a full calendar of competitions up and down the country, a strong volunteer workforce and over 1,000 clubs supported through a county and regional structure. Employees based in Lilleshall, Shropshire, provide membership services, help clubs to develop, deliver talent pathways and support our performance teams and archers. At a European and World level, our archers regularly win medals – both youth and senior and also able-bodied and disabled. Archery was seen as one of the most outstanding spectator experiences at the Olympics in 2012 and the European Championships was successfully held in the UK in 2016.

Following a governance review, Archery GB has moved from an executive Board to a strategic skills-based Board. It is seeking to recruit two additional Independent Directors (from without its membership) to lead on Nomination and Audit & Risk. You will be part of four Independent Directors, eight other Elected Directors (from within the membership) and the Chief Executive who form the Board.
