An exciting new volunteering initiative that will help support the Boxing Scotland Officials Pathway is set to be launched this month.
Boxing Scotland is seeking a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Appointments Officer and a Working Committee of six active members, including a student representative to lead and drive the new Officials Pathway and future development workstrands.
The long-term strategy for the sport in Scotland is owned by Boxing Scotland. In 2019, Boxing Scotland issued a new strategy, On the Front Foot. Our vision to Influence, Include and Inspire is representing a new era of collaboration. Our four primary roles are: governance of the sport, increasing and developing athletes, coaches and officials to achieve success on the world stage.
With a clear focus on continued growth and increased members, the Chair and Officials Committee will be responsible to the CEO for the leadership of training development and the educational pathway for all officials within Scotland.
The positions require experienced leaders, natural team workers and individuals that are already used to operating with volunteers in a sporting environment.
The Chair’s position will inspire and motivate a highly regarded Officials Committee to deliver education, training and individual CPD to new and existing Volunteer Officials within a wide variety of roles/positions. The post holder will be part of and will work alongside a supportive, strong and dynamic team of Boxing Scotland Staff which will lead to organisational success.
The various roles of the committee will involve evening and occasional full weekend working commitments. Subject matter experience in officiating and the sport of boxing is desirable.
Boxing is changing, participation is growing, more clubs are developing, and athletes are getting faster and stronger. High-quality officiating at all levels is now more essential than ever in helping us achieve our vision. Boxing Scotland aspires support at all levels of officiating, from grassroots, right the way through to the highest accolade at international level.
The new pathway will be strengthened further, thanks to a dedicated Officials Committee who will assist and support our volunteers through the pathway. Volunteering will widen your circle of friendships, assist you in learning new skills, and advance your career as an official. With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous.
Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer.
If you feel you have what it takes to be an Officials Committee member, to assist and contribute to a strong and dynamic team at Boxing Scotland, please send a CV, annotating your preferred position, with a covering letter to Marianne.Crichton@boxingscotland.org no later than midday Monday 9th August 2021. Contract type: Volunteer (Part-time) Unremunerated – expenses covered.
