Sport England is looking for an outstanding individual to join its disability team to help deliver its new strategy, Towards an Active Nation.
Closing date: Thursday 12 October 2017
Sport England’s vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or level of ability, feels able to engage in sport and physical activity. Nearly half of all disabled people do less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week and only 42% reach the recommended amount of physical activity each week. We need to change this and you can help us do that.
In Towards an Active Nation we are prioritising demographic groups who are currently under-represented in terms of their engagement with sport and physical activity. This includes many different groups such as women, older people, disabled people, and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
We are looking for a Senior Manager to join our high performing disability team, which is part of a new directorate leading on inactivity. You will also work closely with other directorates and teams across Sport England to make sure that we deliver effectively to disabled people across all areas of our work.
The role will have responsibility for leading on several relationships with key partners to influence these stakeholders in relation to the delivery of our disability ambitions as set out within our strategy.
You will also be responsible for overseeing some of our existing disability investment programmes, ensuring these have the greatest impact possible and increase the number of people engaged in sport and physical activity.
We are looking for someone who has significant experience of disability and has worked on projects or programmes that have influenced disabled people. An ability to successfully project manage is essential. However most important of all is the ability to manage relationships and successfully influence change at a senior level to deliver strategic outcomes.
