We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
We are looking for a dynamic, self-starter who is a natural collaborator to work closely with the Head of Physical Activity and the wider physical activity team.
The Senior Physical Activity Officer role is varied and will involve working across our portfolio of partners including Sport England and the EFL to support our strategic influencing workstream with national physical activity partners and mental health organisations. This includes supporting organisations to develop mental health policies, delivering training and influencing wider stakeholders to embed mental health practices across their organisation and supporting our sector support offer.
The physical activity team has big ambitions to embed this work and create lasting change. Join a team of passionate, creative individuals who believe sport and physical activity should be used to support us to stay well, to support and enable mental health recovery and to tackle stigma.
This position will initially, in line with current and potentially future guidance, be based from home. Post lockdown this role will retain some flexibility but post holders will be expected to be in the office a minimum of two days thereafter (or more, depending on the arrangements of your team)
We value the power of diversity. We embrace the different perspectives that each of us bring. We are creating an inclusive working environment where everyone is appreciated for being authentic and bringing their whole selves to work regardless of race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience.
We are committed to becoming truly anti-racist in everything we do and ensuring that all our employees are treated fairly and equitably at work and promoting equity in physical and mental health for all.
Our strategy has becoming an anti-racist organisation right at the centre of our work. For more information please visit click on the button below.
