Do you have significant, senior management experience in active communities and facility management in the leisure sector and are you ready for a new challenge?

Are you passionate about our sector and do you have great organisational and people management skills?

Is helping communities, facilities and teams to improve year on year, something that excites you? Then look no further!

We are looking for an outstanding individual to join the senior management team at Right Directions to head up and manage the operation of Quest, the UK quality scheme we deliver on behalf of Sport England.

Quest has fundamentally changed over the last seven years and continues to evolve; do you want to be part of the decision-making team that makes this happen? The Head of Quest will play the lead role in the operational management of both the Active Communities and Facility Management schemes and work with Sport England and our other partners, which include Swim England, IQL, STA, Active Alliance, CSPN, ukactive and CIMSPA.

As well as significant sports development experience, you will have a proven track record in people management and working with external, strategic partners. You will also ideally have a working knowledge of Quest, either as an assessor or having achieved Quest accreditation. You will have a great eye for detail, with organisational, mentoring and leadership skills.

Do you have great ideas, together with the drive and dynamism to see the ideas through to the end? If so, this is an exciting opportunity to make a difference in the leisure industry, as part of the leading leisure quality award.

Right Directions is a small, family-oriented business, with a big vision. While you will be based in Hertfordshire, you will work across the UK. The role is initially for two years, with potential to continue.

The salary ranges from £45,000 to £50,000, depending on experience. Please send us your CV, along with details of relevant experience and why you are ideal for this role and our team, by Friday 3 August 2018. Interviews will take place in early September, either at the Right Directions Head Office in Hertfordshire or at Sport England’s offices in London.
