UKU Staff

In addition to having the support of many volunteers, we have - for several years - employed an administrator to help keep the organisation running as smoothly as possible.  In 2007 we extended this role to include the day to day management of all aspects of UKU.


Reports to the Chair of the Board, and is responsible for the management of UK Ultimate and implementing the day-to-day administrative activities of the organisation.

At a high level the purpose of the CEO role is:

  • Work with the Chair to ensure that the Board formulates and regularly review the UKU’s mission and strategic plan; ensure it is able to monitor annual plans and targets
  • Be responsible for staff/volunteer leadership, management and administration of the organisation in executing the agreed plans and fulfilling its obligations – which includes dealing with important, but unexpected issues that arise
  • Work with the Chair to ensure that the Board receives appropriate advice and information on all relevant matters and hence enable it to fulfil its governance responsibilities
  • Promotion of the sport and the organisation – ensuring that both are appropriately presented to stakeholders, e.g. UKU members, sports teachers, fund-awarding bodies, WFDF, etc
  • The CEO/Administrator is also a director and Company Secretary

The administrative activities include:

  • Managing membership data and sending membership packs (e.g. membership cards)
  • Admin of Board meetings – i.e. dates and minutes
  • First line of response to players and public approaching UKU
  • Ensure tournament calendar is available and accurate
  • Maintenance of Insurance arrangements
  • Administer Board elections
  • Administration of UKU coaching courses – attendees, material, venue, etc.
  • Administration of Enhanced CRB checks: managing checks, member details, etc, maintaining list of checked people; and any other administrative activities that arise from running these CRB checks.

For the time being these roles are both filled by a single individual (Si Hill - see picture).  We have an expectation that as the organisation continues to grow we will be able to separate these roles.
