Tennis is a sport that is woven into the fabric of the nation, and as the national governing body the LTA is at the heart of that – from inspiring and engaging the millions of passionate fans who follow leading British players and world class tournaments, through to supporting the grassroots of the sport which reach into local communities across Britain to help get the nation active and deliver amazing physical and mental health benefits to those involved.
The Public Policy Advisor will play a key role within our Corporate Affairs team, helping to deliver the LTA’s Public Affairs strategy, supporting the delivery of the LTA’s campaigns and objectives as a National Governing Body. This will include developing relationships on a national, regional and local level with government, sports organisations and other organisations that influence the LTA’s licence to operate, as well as working across the business to help provide advice and support around the external policy landscape.
In line with our values, we are looking for a talented and driven individual who can bring teamwork, passion, integrity and excellence to this role. If this is you, and you want to join our journey to open up tennis in Britain, then we look forward to receiving your application.
