GreaterSport is the Greater Manchester charity committed to changing lives by inspiring a healthier future in Greater Manchester through moving more, sport and physical activity. We play a strategic leadership role in support of GM Moving, the Greater Manchester wide movement, for movement.

The Role

We are seeking to recruit a Localities Support Lead with purpose, passion and integrity to lead, support and connect the Greater Manchester system in creating the conditions to enable Active Lives for All, and will work within the Local Pilot and wider GreaterSport team. The role will support the connective network between the 10 Greater Manchester localities and the wider system catalysts (Workforce, Engagement, Evaluation and Marketing) to promote more active lifestyles.

This is an exciting role, which will allow the successful candidate to gain a strong understanding of a whole systems approach to physical activity, across a number of projects, programmes and approaches within an Active Partnership.

This role does not require degree-level education or any specific qualifications or training. We are called GreaterSport, but this doesn’t mean that you need to have a sporting background. We are looking for someone who loves working with people, who can unite people from diverse backgrounds around a vision, who understands the power of collaboration and who can work with others to help people connect, support and lead across sectors, organisations and alongside communities to help us achieve the ambitions set out in the ten-year strategy, GM Moving in Action.

This is a full-time role, but job shares and reduced hours will be considered as part of our commitment to flexible working. We have permanent office space in the National Squash Centre in Manchester, and regular team and co-working days in venues across Greater Manchester, blended with homeworking. We trust you to work in a way that suits you and that enables you to be productive and happy.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a high performing Active Partnership team working with a network committed to making positive change through physical activity, sport and movement.

GreaterSport is committed to providing equal opportunities and promoting diversity, irrespective of ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexuality, disability, religion, pregnancy or personal circumstance. We aspire to being a diverse, inclusive and responsible organisation. Our aim is to have a workforce that reflects and understands the communities we work alongside.
