Description

Our physical and mental health is our biggest asset and being physically active unlocks so much that’s good for our health and wellbeing. But despite this, and amid a backdrop of health inequalities, not everyone’s currently able to enjoy the benefits of an active life.

In this exciting role you will work to realise the potential of physical activity to improve Londoner’s health and wellbeing.

Working with a range of partners such as local authority public health teams, Integrated Care Systems, general practice, primary care networks and link workers, you will advocate for the role of physical activity to bring about improved health outcomes in London.

You will forge partnerships to develop and implement interventions that have impact in local communities through using  physical activity to prevent poor health, whilst supporting those with existing conditions to gain the benefits.

What you’ll do:

You will lead on developing London Sport’s approach and plans to enable greater use of physical activity to improve the health of Londoners

You will represent London Sport, developing and maintaining effective relationships with key strategic partners such as Sport England, GLA/Mayor’s health team, OHID, Integrated Care Systems, Primary Care Networks, community sport organisations, and local authorities.

Using evidence, advocate for the role of physical activity in reducing health inequalities and improving health outcomes. Influence relevant policy and practice to increase impact.

Develop approaches to equip health partners and their workforce with the skills and capacity to support those accessing health services to become more active.

In collaboration with colleagues, develop ways to better connect appropriate physical activity opportunities to heath care services.

Working with colleagues, secure investment and funds that support the effective delivery of our work in this area

Oversee projects from completion to delivery, ensuring they are delivered within budget and on time.

Provide leadership and management to colleagues.
