Post date: 23-Jun-2017 11:16:00

Full Time, Permanent / £30,685

Application closing date: Sun 9 Jul 2017

Sport England is looking for an outstanding individual to help develop and manage projects which deliver against our objectives to tackle inactivity.

Our vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or level of ability, feels able to engage in sport and physical activity. With more than one in four of us doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week and one in six deaths caused by inactivity, we are particularly interested in what we can do to help people who do no, or very little physical activity. You can help us do that.

In our new strategy Towards an Active Nation, tackling inactivity is a key feature. In it we commit to triple the amount we invest in helping the people who are inactive become active. This is where we will have the greatest opportunity to secure the outcomes set out in the Government’s new strategy Sporting Future including both physical wellbeing and mental wellbeing.

This is a unique opportunity to join the health team at Sport England, which has been established under a new directorate leading on inactivity, designed to ensure that we invest in projects and programmes and develop partnerships which contribute to decreasing the percentage of people who are physically inactive and that we learn and share this learning along the way.

We are looking for a project and relationship manager to join our high performing team. You will be responsible for delivering, supporting and monitoring projects designed to reach and engage those who are least active by providing good quality advice and communicating effectively with partners.

We are looking for someone who has proven experience working in physical activity related project delivery, design and evaluation with strong organisational and analytical skills. An ability to collaborate with external partners and advocate on behalf of the organisation is also essential.
