About GB Basketball



The British Basketball Federation

The British Basketball Federation (British Basketball) is the National Governing Body (NGB) responsible for basketball in Britain and took on the International Federation (FIBA) membership role from the Home Country Associations in October 2016.

The goal of British Basketball is to create a world class elite basketball programme in Great Britain and to lead the overarching strategy for the growth of basketball in England, Scotland and Wales.

The Board of British Basketball are currently looking to appoint an Independent Chair and an Appointed Board Director (Performance) to drive this strategy forward.

Independent Chair

The role of Independent Chair is crucial to the work and effectiveness of the Board. The Chair should not only be prepared and able to take on additional commitments, but that they must be capable of operating at a broader and higher level. An effective Chair has to be able to command the support of the members, the organisation's partners as well as operate with Board members. In bringing leadership, specialist skills and experience to British Basketball, the right candidate will be independent of any Member Nation and will understand all of the areas of specialism which board directors may possess.

Appointed Board Director (Performance)

The Appointed Board Director (Performance) will act as a director of the British Basketball Federation and provide strategic leadership and governance support whilst also building relationships with key stakeholders. The Director will have specific accountability to help monitor and report to the Board on all matters related to the effective operation of the Great Britain Team programmes and to lead the British Basketball Performance planning process.
