Do you have a passion to improve the lives of children, young people and families?

Do you want to be at the forefront of making sport and activity easier for communities?

Do you want the freedom to lead a new, innovative and progressive project?

Through funding from Sport England, Oasis Hub Waterloo are developing a new - Active Community project. We are looking for a skilled, adaptable and committed Project Manager to be instrumental in spearheading easy access physical activity and sports opportunities that our community own and enjoy.

You’ll have significant experience of capacity building and community development and be able to rapidly deliver the 6 month pilot to test assumptions and achieve outcomes.

Working alongside the Hub’s wider team, you will use your knowledge and experience to develop novel physical activity and sport opportunities for families and the community to get active.

The project has the potential to run longer than its pilot phase, during which time funding will be sought to continue the project if successful.

Duties will include to:

  • Collect community insight and interpret the recommendations.
  • Co-design activities using local assets to deliver them within agreed timescales.
  • Design and ensure effective monitoring and evaluation of the project.

  • A track record of organising, planning and delivering sport and physical activity for families in an urban environment.
  • Excellent understanding of the interplay between the environment, lifestyle and health.
