Development Officer - Scotland

Location: Scotland

Across Scotland, hundreds of local community sports groups and charities are using the power of sport to transform young people’s lives and tackle problems within their communities. These groups are often under-resourced and regularly face threats to their survival. The local heroes who run them struggle daily to find the time, and funding they need to continue their work. If you have great communication skills, are highly productive and want to help these groups stay open then please get in touch.

As one of two Development Officers for Scotland, you will be a key point of contact for our Network of 214 members and volunteers, ensuring they are appropriately supported with a range of benefits and services as they ‘return to play’ and recover from the impact of the pandemic.  You will support the delivery of key thematic partnerships and projects, ensuring they are delivered efficiently, effectively, and all monitoring and evaluation requirements are met. In addition, you will recruit and train our team of volunteers across Scotland, building Sported’s capacity to engage with groups on a range of topic areas.

Closing date: 9am Monday 19th April 2021
Interviews: w/c Monday 26th April 2021
