The Role

This is an exciting time to join the organisation as our new Chief Executive – we are working closely with partners and stakeholders to provide support to the people and organisations on the ground that deliver, influence, and inspire others to be active. You will further mature the strategic direction of Living Sport and lead our organisation into the next phase of its evolution.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to make a lasting difference and is open to working innovatively and collaboratively to drive Living Sport forward.

You are an inclusive, forward thinking, and innovative leader with direct experience of navigating complex organisations and exceptional leadership and advocacy skills.

You will have proven experience in increasing income, and we are looking to you to leverage strategic and multifaceted partnerships, in order to accelerate and expand our reach and impact. 

We are looking to you for vision, growth and you will bring compassion, warmth and energy. You’ll be someone who can quickly build trust and credibility across our team, our community and our wider stakeholders. Values driven; you will care deeply about what we do and the people we serve and will be driven, as we are, to radically change people’s lives for the better.

We look forward to welcoming the next leader to this crucial post, and to identifying an individual who shares this commitment to our vision and goals. If this sounds like an exciting challenge, we’d love to hear from you.
