Award winning international development charity, Alive and Kicking are looking for three new trustees, and a number of ambassadors involved in professional sport, to support the strategic growth of their revenue, reach and impact. This is an incredible opportunity to change the lives and livelihoods of people facing disadvantage by using football as a force for good.  


Founded in 2004, Alive and Kicking (AK) is the world’s only not for profit sports ball manufacturer and the only formal producer on the African continent. The organisation was originally started to ensure that young people could play on a regular basis with a high-quality durable sports ball. Since opening, the impact of the organisation has grown and now focuses on three key impact areas, Make, Play and Live.

Our board of trustees are responsible for the overall governance, financial health and strategic direction of the charity, developing its organisational aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines.

As a member of the Board of Trustees, there is a shared responsibility for the strategic direction of the organisation, supporting the charitable objectives of AK and ensuring sound governance.

In addition to the statutory duties, each Trustee uses their specific skills, knowledge and experience they have to help the Board of Trustees reach sound decisions.

As an AK ambassador you will have an agreed time commitment to attend events, post impactful content through your social channels and represent AK as a spoke’s person in media publications. We will work with your schedule to ensure that you are not over committing your time whilst having the biggest impact for AK.

Closing date: Monday 4th October 2021
