Senior Volunteer

We are recruiting for Senior Volunteers to join our two new Changing Lives in Sport Advisory Boards.

Changing Lives in Sport Advisory Board: Athlete Services

The primary function of our new Advisory Board will be to support the Switch the Play staff team in the development and evolution of our Athlete Services to ensure our offer is needs led, informed by the latest industry and academic insight, and helps to have a positive impact on the beneficiaries of our charity – current and former sportspeople. In short, the Board will help advise the Executive Team to ensure that the athletes needs are at the heart of every decision.

Changing Lives in Sport Advisory Board: Fundraising

The primary function of our new Advisory Board will be to support and enable opportunities for Switch the Play Foundation to unlock new fundraising opportunities and ultimately, help us to reach more sportspeople who need support with their transition to life outside of sport.
