Role Description

Non Executive Director
Job reference: REF-18-GBSV9TL

We’re Brio Leisure – the ambitious and innovative face of community leisure! Our mission is to ensure that everyone in Cheshire West and Chester can live a happier, healthier life with affordable access to great fitness, entertainment facilities alongside health & wellness services.

Exciting opportunities have opened up for three highly talented and strategically minded individuals to join the Brio Board as Non-Executive Directors, to continue to help shape and champion our successful community interest company

We’re interested in people who have experience in the following:

  • Capital investment and project management, as we have an extensive asset portfolio and forthcoming development projects on the horizon;
  • Digital and Business professional expertise, to support ongoing transition through technical innovation, as a leisure industry leader;
  • Legal and/or Commercial experience, providing financial acumen and awareness of market trends, and seeking out business opportunities.

You’ll not only be providing strategic direction and governance, but your passion in all things health & wellbeing will be invaluable in supporting our management team. Ideally you’ll have worked as part of a board or at a senior management level previously.

Our board of directors work in collaboration with a number of key agencies across the borough to further strengthen our reputation as a leading leisure and wellbeing provider. Your drive, ambition and forward thinking will help ensure this continues to be the case.

In return, you’ll become part of a strong board that is committed to making Brio Leisure an exemplar company – blending commercial drive with strong social values. We are a successful organization and have recently won UK Active Organisation of the Year 2019; we are members of the Parliamentary Review panel 2019, and most recently have been listed in the London Stock Exchange 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019.

This role will be for a period of four years and is subject to annual review. You’ll be expected to commit to providing the equivalent of 2 days per month, which includes attendance at quarterly scheduled board meetings. In return there is remuneration of up to £7000 per annum and reasonable expenses will also be paid. Preference will be given to applicants residing in Cheshire West and Chester, or who have had previous employment in the borough. The posts are as a result of a retiring director and changes to our Articles of Association, and you’ll be required to take up the post in November 2019.

If you’d like to discuss your skills and suitability further, please contact David Woods, Chair Designate or Elly McFahn, Managing Director at and we’ll be able to chat through with you.

Interviews are scheduled to take place in early October 2019. Further information is available on our website.

Closing Date: Sunday 22nd September 2019
