Fixed term for 3 years.

Based at East Suffolk House, Melton but working countywide.

Following a successful 3 year funding bid, Suffolk Sport is looking to recruit a Co-ordinator for their award winning Fit Villages project. This role will work alongside the newly appointed part time co-ordinator to ensure those living in Suffolk’s smallest rural communities are supported to become active and connected with their local communities.

We are looking for an exceptional, enthusiastic and committed individual with a good understanding of the barriers faced by rural communities – particularly older people. You will need to have a sound understanding of the benefits of a physically active lifestyle and be confident to relay this to rural audiences, for example, Parish Councils.

An excellent communicator, determined to provide the best possible service, you will have the ability to motivate and inspire. A genuine interest in the needs of older people and a determination to connect communities is essential for this post.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development. We want you to stay with us for the long-term, so we will give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There is also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.

For an informal discussion regarding this post, please contact Tracy Brownlow on (01379) 677307 / 079211 56997.

Please read the job description and person specification before applying for this job.

Interview dates: w/c 2 July and w/c 9 July 2018.
