Business Sponsor

The role of the Sponsor is to ensure the club meets all of its governance obligations within the DWP Running Staff Clubs Framework:

  • The Office Manager, or in the case of a club covering several locations, the senior manager, should take on the role.
  • However, it may be agreed that, to facilitate commu­nica­tion where a club covers a number of locations, the site manager where the Chair is based is nominated as sponsor. The sponsor will act as the initial point of contact in respect of any difficulties which may arise, and which the Chair and committee are unable to resolve.
