Ideally you will have successfully managed sports facilities and services in a commercial setting and be able to demonstrate experience of working with governing bodies of sport, external agencies and Sport England on projects and initiatives designed to increase widening participation in sport and physical activity.

You should hold a degree, or equivalent professional qualification in a relevant discipline.
