Director Vacancy

Become one of our Directors!

We have an exciting opportunity for someone to fill a vacant position as one of our Board of Directors.

The Director is accountable to the Board of Directors through the Chairman and will be required to attend Board Meetings held at the our Headquarters in Lancing, as well as other meetings and events of the Association as and when required.

Ideally, you would have some business experience, as the Board is focused on the delivery of The FA strategies and our Business Plans, as well as financial planning, budget control and other areas of good governance.
