Community is at the heart of everything we do. We're the UK's largest leisure operator and the first and largest leisure social enterprise, so we have a lot to be proud of and aim to still do more to promote fitness, sport, leisure and health to the communities that we serve. We are looking for an experienced and passionate Community Sports Manager to help us to widen the participation of community sport and health physical activity in North Kesteven, Lincolnshire.
Working across our leisure facilities in North Kesteven partnership, you'll manage a small team of community sport officers, working together to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle to communities across North Kesteven. This is an interesting role that will use your passion for sport and communities as well as your people skills. The main objective of the role is to interact with the community to encourage and increase participation in activity.
