Update 08/05/22 – SportCheer England is looking to appoint an Executive Chair for the Board.


SportCheer England is the National Governing Body for Cheerleading in England, recognised as the official English Federation by the International Cheer Union, the IOC recognised Worldwide Governing Body for Cheerleading. SportCheer England is in the process of preparing its application to Sport England for sort and Tier 1 governance recognition, and the Executive Chair will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of the next stages, including the launch of a formal membership.


It is desirable that candidates have knowledge of UK sports governance, safeguarding, previous or current Chair or Executive Board level experience, and experience in the process of applying to a Sports Council for NGB or sport recognition.


As SCE is a newly emerging organisation, the role will require a candidate who is willing to assist in practical ways through their skills, expertise and network to progress the work of the Board and will undoubtably require more hours than expected in a traditional Chair role.  


All current board positions at SportCheer England are unremunerated, however, for their next term, the position of Chair has been made Executive, in the acknowledgement that the current role undertakes an operational dimension and in the hope that there may be a future opportunity to offer a small amount of compensation for operational tasks.



The appointment will be made by the board’s convened nominations committee, with the application process opening today (Saturday 30th April).

We particularly welcome applications from Disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates, as they are currently underrepresented within SportCheer England at this level.


For more information and to receive an application form please contact: sportcheerengland@gmail.com


Expression of interest deadline May 15th 2022


Interview dates to be agreed by the applicant and the SCE nominations committee. First round interviews will take place via Zoom.
