About the role

Sense has an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual to join our Arts, Sports and Wellbeing team as our Sport & Physical Activity Coordinator. This is a part time, home based role, working 30 hours per week in the East of England. Our key areas in this region are Peterborough, Cambridge and South Lincolnshire.

As our Sport & Physical Activity Coordinator, you will be responsible for the delivery of our Sport England funded ‘Sense, Active Together’ project. Working closely with our Sport & Physical Activity Development Manager and our National Sport Manager, you will build a network of delivery partners and sport organisations, finding the right people to lead activity sessions. You'll also promote the project to participants, ensuring we're connecting the right individuals with the things they enjoy.

This is a fantastic time to join Sense as we grow our programme to ensure that more people with complex disabilities have the opportunity to lead an active life.

About you 

Our ideal candidate will be proactive and solution focussed. It’s really important that you’re independently motivated and are comfortable with remote working. You’ll have a strong understanding of the sporting landscape in your area, and the ability to build and maintain a network of high-quality partners and organisations.

It’d be great if you have an understanding of the needs of people with complex disabilities, and it’s essential that you’re able to align yourself with Sense’s values to provide the best service to the people we support.

A full UK driving licence and use of your own vehicle is an essential requirement for this role.

Working at Sense can be incredibly rewarding; we offer the opportunity to work in a large, diverse and successful charity where people can develop their skills, knowledge and careers in a supportive and flexible environment. In addition we have excellent training and development, the opportunity for you to join our Group Personal Pension scheme and a generous annual leave entitlement.
