Active Withernsea Recruitment

Hungry for a challenge?

Three exciting opportunities have come up to work as part of a new "Active Withernsea" team, tackling physical inactivity in Withernsea.

Sport England selected Withernsea as one of 12 'Local Delivery Pilot' (LDP) areas across England to work with on bold new approaches to build healthier and more active communities. Around £100million of National Lottery funding will be invested in the LDP's up to 2021 to transform the way that inactive people in disadvantaged communities are engaged. A key feature of each LDP is to address a whole systems approach which creates and improves collaborative working to empower communities to become more active and more resilient.


This has created a fantastic opportunity initially for three experienced and ambitious change makers to become part of an "Active Withernsea" team committed to changing behaviours to increase physical, mental and social activity in order to improve lives. Further opportunities to become part of the team will follow the recruitment of these three posts.

We are looking for individuals that are passionate about community engagement, community development and community empowerment. This is not a typical Monday to Friday 9-5 job! You will actively work with local residents forlocal solutions. You will have a deep knowledgeof community and individual needs, using innovative qualitative and quantitative methods to gain real understanding of opportunities and barriers to active lifestyles.

All the posts will be based in Withernsea.
