Help for Heroes – Sport Practitioner

***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***

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

Do you enjoy working within the community and have experience of developing community-based opportunities in activity and sport?  Do you have a background of sports coaching?  Do you have experience of working with the veteran community?  If you are keen to join this leading military charity as it develops its new community-based recovery programmes this could be the role for you.

About the Role

This is a community-based position with an element of home working across one or more regions. The successful candidate would develop and deliver community-based opportunities, principally in Sport.  The programmes you will offer veterans and their families will provide quality interventions to combat social isolation, increase activity levels, develop peer support schemes, social networks, and opportunities to engage within the wider community.

About the Team

Team members are enthusiastic, compassionate, professional, and dedicated to developing and delivering a high-quality cost-effective community-based recovery programme.
