The role encompasses managing and coordinating the planning, delivery and monitoring of the community sports, football and social activity programme.

The successful candidate will have relevant experience in setting up, organising and delivering programmes of activities and events and be able to communicate effectively with a wide range of funding partners, colleagues and participants.

Subject to grant approvals, the role will commence in September 2018 under an annually renewable contract. The role is part-time (three days a week) on a service contract basis. Applicants will be required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check.
