BowlsWales Board Directors Vacancies

BowlsWales Board Directors Vacancies

BowlsWales is the coordinating body for the sport of bowls in Wales. Our vision ‘Bowls as a lifetime sport for all’.

BowlsWales is a company limited by guarantee with a skills-based Board of Directors. We are looking to appoint three further Board Directors.

To fully deliver against our ambitions, it is essential that the Board has the right blend of skills, diversity and experience as outlined in the Governance and Leadership Framework for Wales. BowlsWales are seeking enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our Board to support the delivery of our aims and objectives.

The Roles

If you would like to contribute your time, skills and experience we are looking for individuals who can demonstrate an ability to support us in the following areas:

• Human Resources

• Performance

• Stakeholder Engagement 

Previous experience in a Board position is desirable but not essential. Candidates
who have not previously served in a Director role should still be able to
demonstrate the skills and competencies necessary to contribute to the Board.
The role will require around approximately 4 days per month but sometimes more
depending on the time of year. There are usually 11 Board meetings per year and Directors may be asked to represent the organisation at other relevant meetings and events.

Whilst this is a non-salaried position, reasonable expenses to attend meetings will be paid to the successful candidate. BowlsWales is committed to achieving a diverse, inclusive and balanced Board and are committed to equality of opportunity. Females are currently underrepresented on the Board and we would openly encourage applications from individuals possessing the required skills set.

How to apply

If you would like to express an interest in these roles, please send your CV with a supporting letter to the General Manager : -


If you would like to discuss the role please contact Ken Burton (Chair)

Closing date Monday 2nd November 5pm and interviews will take place on 4th – 11th November.
