We are recruiting for various positions on the CIMSPA Youth Panel. These positions not only provide excellent opportunities for your own professional development, but they give you the chance to have your say as an advocate for the voices of young people in the sport and physical activity sector.

The Roles

We are recruiting for three positions:
  • Youth Panel Member (multiple positions) – you will attend meetings and collaborate on associated actions aligning to the Youth Panel’s objectives

  • Youth Panel Vice Chair – you will support the Chair in the management and development of the panel

The Purpose of the Youth Panel

The purpose of the Youth Panel is to allow young adults to act as advisors to the board of trustees by advocating the youth perspective to influence, policy, practice, and the strategic direction of CIMSPA. As champions of the youth perspective, Youth Panel members consider the implications of CIMSPA’s services and operations for young adults, ultimately working to support CIMSPA’s vision and mission.

Why should you apply?

Being part of the CIMSPA Youth Panel is your opportunity to make a real difference to the sport and physical activity sector for young people. Being a panel member feels empowering, as CIMSPA truly values the voices of young people, and wants to build a thriving sport and physical activity sector for everyone. The activities and outcomes of the panel’s actions are taken into account at board level, meaning Youth Panel members’ perspectives have the potential to influence CIMSPA’s ways of working. Furthermore, Youth Panel membership provides excellent opportunities for professional development.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested

  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better
