Brentford FC is looking to recruit an Independent Non-Executive Director to sit on the Board of Directors. The Club is currently near the top of the Sky Bet Championship and has, in the past six months, moved in to a new stadium.
Key Board objectives are based on the Brentford Football Club’s desire to become the most inclusive club in the country, growing and diversifying its supporter base, delivering outstanding fan and community engagement and increasing revenues through purpose led commercial partnerships.
In order to realise its ambitions, the club realises diversity must run through the entire organisation and must start from the top. It is looking for a new person to sit on its Board with the right mix of skills, knowledge and energy to help them do that.
In order to complement the skills of Brentford’s existing directors, the club is looking for someone with demonstrable senior experience and skills in the areas of community, supporter or stakeholder engagement to build upon their new stadium, situated equidistant between London Heathrow airport and central London and at the heart of the West London community.
Whilst having proven strategic experience in a similar role would be advantageous, in line with the club’s inclusive outlook and desire to increase diversity, it is willing to look more broadly at people with a different skill set, who may be able to effectively fulfil the same role.
Diversity & inclusion
The club’s current board of eight contains gender and ethnic diversity but in line with ambitions and clear evidence that more diverse boards make better decisions, they are casting their net more widely.
Whilst the club is striving for diversity, it is absolutely committed to selecting the best candidate for the job, who best performs throughout a fair and transparent selection process.
Brentford FC is a signatory to The FA’s Diversity Code, and as such commits to shortlisting at least one person of ethnic or gender diversity for this role, in addition to any shortlisted candidates who may already have been considered if necessary. This additional candidate will still need to fulfil all of the requirements listed in the Role Description.
