Non-Executive Directors Required

The Canoe Association of Northern Ireland (CANI) is the governing body responsible for the management, co-ordination, development and promotion of canoeing in Northern Ireland. We represent the interests of our members to government, the public and through British Canoeing to the International Canoe Federation.

CANI has recently launched it 2017 – 2021 strategic plan “Canoeing For All” which aims to Inspire people to pursue a passion for paddling; for health, enjoyment, friendship, challenge and achievement. There are ambitious targets within the plan to develop all aspects of the sport and additional skills are required within the board to deliver the strategy. This is a fantastic opportunity to help shape the implementation of the strategy for the development of Canoeing and to build on the success within the sport.

To meet the skills required we are now seeking to appoint three directors for the following roles;

  • Commercial
  • Performance sport
  • Public Relations

No prior experience of canoeing is required, although knowledge or experience of the sport or outdoor activity sectors would be an advantage.
We currently hold monthly board meetings. The meetings usually take place at the CANI office in Belfast. There will be the opportunity to take on additional roles.

The Director roles are voluntary, although all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be refunded.

The appointees will serve until the AGM in mid 2018.

CANI is an equal opportunities employer, and applications are welcome from all suitably qualified individuals. We are particularly interested in achieving gender parity and diversity on our Board. We, therefore, welcome applications from individuals who can help us achieve this.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to informal interviews, which will take place as soon as possible after the closing date.
To discuss the roles prior to application contact the chairperson of CANI, Liz McCreery at chairperson@cani.org.uk

To apply – email a letter of application along with a CV and return to chairperson@cani.org.uk on or before the 31st August 2017.
