Job Description

Reporting through to the Chief Executive Officer, you will help our vision to become a reality through 2 main roles:

· To provide high quality support, primarily to the Active Partnership network, that helps to progress local and shared priorities.

· To develop and maintain trusted and influential relationships with colleagues within the Active Partnership network, Sport England and wider partners which maximise the strengths and resources that exist.

We need someone with strong skills and qualities. And, of course, someone who shares our passion for transforming lives through sport and physical activity and making active lives the social norm for everyone. We're open minded to the background and experience the right person would bring but we know the sort of attributes that would thrive. Someone who can build trusted relationships with people. Someone who shows confidence in checking and challenging thinking and ways of working. Someone who can influence change that will bring our vision becoming a reality a step closer. A person who values and promotes co-design and can bring people together to jointly create innovative ideas and practice that drive change. And a leader who is comfortable operating in a fast moving and ever-changing environment, can join the dots between opportunities and challenges and who embraces diversity and inclusion.


We are building a culture where diversity is valued and we can all be ourselves. We still have work to do but are strongly committed to inclusive practices which demonstrate fairness, equality and antiracism in everything we do. We will not tolerate less favourable treatment of anyone, especially those with legally protected characteristics, and welcome applications from all sections of communities, particularly those under-represented within our organisation.

That is why our application forms are set up in ways that try to make it easy to tell us about yourself. We have a process that means all applications are assessed anonymously. The job application forms are hosted by Yorkshire Sport Foundation, one of the 43 Active Partnerships. When applying for any of the roles using the links above, you will need to create a free account and that will allow the form to save your progress every time you move to the next page. Part complete forms can be found in your dashboard.
