The Mayor of London is inviting applications for the position of Chair of Board – London Sport.  We are looking for senior leaders who are passionate about Sport in London and have a range of insights and expertise.

London Sport was created by the Mayor of London, Sport England, and London Councils to help London to become the most physically active city in the world. To get them some of the way there they have an ambitious target of helping to get 1,000,000 Londoners to be more physically active by 2020.

London Sport is the centre of excellence for physical activity and sport and works with London’s 33 Local Authorities and hundreds of other organisations, supporting them in their work because we all believe that being more physically active improves people’s lives.  London Sport aims to create long-term behaviour change in London’s population, so that all Londoners can enjoy the benefits of living physically active lives.


The new Chair will lead the Board in an exciting stage of London Sports mission, with the Mayor’s Sport Strategy, Sport for All of Us, published earlier this month. With a passion for grassroots physical activity and sport, the ideal candidate will be a confident communicator and public speaker, with a proven ability to think strategically, manage the board and influence senior stakeholders.
