We are looking for someone to take the lead on the planning and delivery of a wide variety of Suffolk Sport’s physical activity, health and wellbeing projects in order to develop and enhance the sport and physical activity provision for the community.

You must have excellent communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills, and have the ability to work on your own initiative and as part of a team.

A flexible approach to working hours is required, as well as a full UK driving licence and a willingness to travel county wide.

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.

Suffolk Sport is one of 43 County Sports Partnerships nationally and is currently hosted by Suffolk Coastal District Council. On 1 April 2019, Suffolk Coastal will become East Suffolk Council – a new ‘super district’ authority, replacing Suffolk Coastal and Waveney. It will be the largest district council in the country, providing high-quality services to a quarter of a million people across east Suffolk. Our councils are an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to those who need them most.

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