World Intellectual Impairment Sport launch search for Governing Board member

The International Federation for Intellectual Impairment Sport (World Intellectual Impairment Sport) has launched a search for a trustee with a flare for corporate partnerships to give strategic direction to its fundraising and income generation activities.

World Intellectual Impairment Sport has enlisted the support of Trustees Unlimited, a specialist recruitment organisation for the not-for-profit sector.

The person will work with the Executive Director to take a strategic approach to identifying new corporate partnerships. Nick Parr, World Intellectual Impairment Sport’ Executive Director, said: “The increasing profile of para-sport means that this is an exciting time to be involved in our work and big opportunities are clearly out there.

“The potential is massive but like other small charities, even though we are an international organisation, we need a helping hand to capitalise on it.

“Whoever fills this position has the chance to make a real difference to the lives of 100,000s of people around the world.”

World Intellectual Impairment Sport is a member of the International Paralympic Committee. It is formed of more than 80 member organisations who manage sport for athletes with an intellectual impairment nationally. The World Intellectual Impairment Sport programme features 14 sports, three of which – swimming, athletics and table tennis – are in the Paralympic Games. World Intellectual Impairment Sport manages part of the pathway for elite athletes in all its sports, as well as World Championships and other competitions, promoting social inclusion along the way.
