Outside bodies

There are a number of organisations which are independent from the council, but have an impact on its service areas.

In order that the council can maintain effective partnerships with a number of these organisations, representatives of the council, usually elected councillors, sit on the various committees and forums that are responsible for them.

To find the contact details for the council’s representative on a particular outside body please follow the relevant link.

Non-Executive Director – Millennium Stadium plc

Principality Stadium (known previously as the Millennium Stadium) is an iconic landmark within Cardiff and is an internationally recognised, multi-use facility that hosts a wide range of sporting, cultural, business and community events on an annual basis. The company which manages the stadium, Millennium Stadium plc, is a subsidiary of The Welsh Rugby Union Limited. However, as the Special Shareholder in the company, Cardiff Council currently appoints three Non-Executive Directors to the Board.

The Council is seeking to appoint one independent Non-Executive Director to join the Board of Millennium Stadium plc for a fixed term of 3 years and would welcome applications from individuals who can help to represent a broad public interest in contributing to collective Board decisions on matters such as business planning, policy, strategy, performance, resources and corporate governance. Board membership is unpaid, but authorised travelling costs and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be met by the company in accordance with its policy.

Applications are welcomed from candidates who have a strong track record of personal achievement and relevant business experience in the private, public or voluntary sectors and who can provide an independent business/community focused perspective to the work of the company.

The Council welcomes applications in both English and Welsh. Applications received in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than applications submitted in English. The Council also particularly welcomes and encourages applications from all under-represented groups in public appointments in Wales, including women; people under 30 years of age; black, Asian, minority ethnic people; disabled people; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. All applications will be considered on merit.

To request an information pack and application form, please contact the Council by email:democraticservices@cardiff.gov.uk or telephone: (029) 2087 2095.

The closing date for applications is Monday 23 September 2019 (5:00pm).
