They will also work closely with colleagues from across all of StreetGames, to draw on the skills, experience and expertise of the whole organisation.

They will adopt a ‘learning approach’ and regularly gather, and share, learning and good practise with LTO’s from across the region. The post holder will require a blend of interpersonal skills, youth work and sport specific knowledge.

The post holder will be required to engage and support with LTO’s, through a range of approaches, including digital engagements and face-to-face meetings.
