ESSEX COUNTY FA REQUIRE INDEPENDENT BOARD MEMBER
Vacancy for a Football Enthusiast to Make a Difference

The Essex County FA are on the hunt for life-long football enthusiasts, players, volunteers, coaches and corporate professionals looking to volunteer their expertise as they seek to fill a voluntary vacancy for an Independent Board Member.

 

Essex is one of the largest County FAs in the country, with more than 4,200 local teams playing football, and they’re committed to creating a Board of diverse skills, experience and backgrounds who can add value to the game. An open application process is being run to attract and recruit the best person for the role, with applications are required by 10:00am on Monday 23rd July.

 

The Essex County FA ‘Moving Forward’ and FA National Game Strategies for 2018-2021 outline a strategic direction to create a united grassroots football environment which delivers football opportunity for all. One of those strategic objectives is to ensure their corporate governance structure is operating effectively and efficiently.

 

An individual who can support them in achieving that objective is now being sought, as Chief Executive, Brendan Walshe, explains: “We’re always looking to ensure we have the correct diversity of individuals and skills across the Board so we’re reflective of the community in Essex, and have a skill set so the Essex County FA can continue to improve in the years ahead.”

 

“Existing Director, David Threadgold, recently stepped down following twelve years of service on the Essex County FA Board, creating an exciting opportunity to review how a wider diversity of people and skills could be brought onto the Board.”

 

“There are lots of skilled individuals within the football community from all sectors of industry such as business, financial, professional, commercial, corporate, HR and political backgrounds. In previous years, they haven’t had the opportunity to offer those skill sets at a strategic Board level to help the Essex County FA to support the game of football in Essex.”

 

“We also need to meet the evolving needs of the business. This process will enable those people who have a passion for football, and have high-level expertise gained from professional or voluntary roles, to apply directly to serve on the Board of Essex County FA.”

 

Details of the skills and experience required, as well as the Essex County FA’s  organisational values and the application process, can be found at www.essexfa.com. Grassroots football news can also be found on Twitter @EssexCountyFA and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
