Graduate Sports Leader - Huddersfield

  • £20,253 - £22,638 per annum
  • Fixed term appointment for 9 months
  • 37 hours per week

As a Graduate Sport Leader, you will embark on a 9-month programme that will prepare you for your career in sport and participation.  You will be part of our core team and apply your graduate knowledge and experience to enable more students, to become more active, more often. 

This will involve a wide range of activities, you will take responsibility for duty management of a leisure facility, develop your instructional skills, lead social and participatory sessions.  You will be able to engage, enthuse and motivate students, becoming capable of both offering 1-1 coaching and promoting ‘getting active’ to large groups. 

As a great team member, you will lead by example and motivate others to deliver great customer service. We expect that you work flexibly and can commit to a rolling rota that will include early, late and weekend cover.

Graduate Sport Leaders will work with our established managers to agree personal objectives and a programme of work and learning that will enable you to achieve your career goals.  Along the way you will contribute your ideas, enthusiasm and creativity to increase participation.  You will be supported to develop and evaluate a live project to increase levels of participation.  Consequently, a readiness to learn is equally as important as prior experience in sport and participation.  You will be curious as to why others don’t get involved in sport and will apply your insight to grow participation.

In carrying out this role you will be equipped with the relevant skills, experience to take the next steps on your chosen career path.
