We are passionate about our Place and we firmly believe we have one of the strongest propositions in the country. Building on the strengths of being the UK’s best connected location, Doncaster is transforming the way it looks and feels. Anyone joining our council can look forward to working for a confident, ambitious organisation with big plans to develop further and deliver for our residents, workforce and visitors. 

Doncaster has been successful in becoming one of only 12 of Sport England’s Local Delivery Pilot (LDP) sites to pioneer bold new approaches to build more active communities. Doncaster’s pilot will encourage wider, collaborative partnerships which look at how all parts of a community can better work together to help the most inactive. 

These are exciting times for Doncaster and in particular the physical activity and sport arena. This post will be responsible for the maximising outcomes of Doncaster’s LDP programme plan. It will involve working closely with the Get Doncaster Moving Board, Sport England’s Local Contact Manager, LDP Strategic Leads and partners to achieve a whole systems approach to addressing inactivity.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated individual with a passion for tackling inactivity using a place based approach.
