Development Manager- South West

Salary : £28,000 - £42,000 per annum

Job Location : South West

Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, West of England & Gloucestershire with more in depth work in Cornwall, Dorset and Wiltshire - 1 full time post (the successful candidate must live within the region)

Support us in creating a world leading sport system that reaches, inspires and engages all young people – whatever their age or ability. That’s our aim at Youth Sport Trust (YST) and, if you join us, you’ll be helping youngsters in your region achieve their full potential by ensuring they have access to high quality physical education and sport.

Working with a portfolio of schools, you’ll assist them in maximising their development of PE and school sport, and show them how sport can raise achievement. You will also recruit and nurture a Youth Sport Trust ‘associate’ community of deliverers and advocates, to raise YSTs profile and influence at a deeper level locally.

You will be expected to secure partnerships with existing and/or new stakeholders in your regional area that can lever local income which will be directed back into PE and School Sport. This also includes promoting membership of our organisation and being able to clearly articulate the benefits to schools.

Much of your success will depend on you winning support from colleagues, schools and other influential individuals and organisations. You, therefore, must be able to express yourself persuasively in speech and writing, with the authority of impressive experience. Your background should encompass providing development support to schools and implementing national educational programmes at a regional level. You certainly need to be familiar with education and sport policy, and the organisations that can help schools develop PE and sport.  You also have to know how to develop and use PE and sport to bring about positive outcomes for young people.  Skills like budget management and operational reporting, while more mundane, are vital too.

The Youth Sport Trust is a passionate and forward thinking organisation full of committed professionals.  As a member of the team we guarantee you will feel very much part of our mission and will experience fun, challenge and fulfilment in your role.

If you possess all these attributes and share our passionate belief in the benefits of sport for young people, please select "Apply for this job" below and complete an online application.
