Help for Heroes – Sport Practitioner


At Help for Heroes, we believe those who serve our country deserve support when they are wounded. Every day, men and women must leave their career in the Armed Forces due to physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever.  We help them, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives.

Who are we you are wondering? We are experts and beginners. Generalists and specialists. Ordinary people with an extraordinary passion towards making a positive change to the lives of our veterans (and having fun while doing it).

As One Team we share a philosophy – I.C.A.R.E. It is the way we walk and talk, the way we interact with others and how we approach everything we do. We are:

Innovative – Collaborative – Authentic – Resourceful – Energetic. 

We have an incredible opportunity for a Sport, Activity & Fellowship (SAF) Practitioner in Sport.

We are accepting applications for this role on a full-time basis. Applicants should be able to demonstrate experience in both sport and activities as outlined in the job description.

About You

About the Role

This is a community-based position with an element of home working across one or more regions.
