Your chance to make a difference!

West Lancashire lies at the heart of the North West of England, located within easy reach of major conurbations such as Manchester and Liverpool. With a growing economy, it is home to a top-class university and benefits from a mix of vibrant towns, picturesque villages and some of the most beautiful and productive countryside in the UK.

West Lancashire Borough Council is ambitious for West Lancashire and this is at the heart of everything we do. We deliver a wide range of services to the local community, including refuse and recycling, leisure and recreation, planning and housing.

We are developing plans to introduce two new Leisure Centres for the Borough. To support this work we are seeking to appoint an experienced Leisure Project Development Manager, providing project management support to the Deputy Director of Leisure & Wellbeing.

If you already have the necessary qualifications, skills and experience in the development of leisure projects and are looking for the chance to make a difference, then we would like to hear from you!

As a Leisure Project Development Manager, the main purpose of your role will be to support the procurement of significant capital and revenue projects, securing external grants and partnership funding to meet the priorities and key actions identified in the Council's Leisure Strategy. In support of the Deputy Director of Leisure & Wellbeing, you will deliver the Council’s strategic aims and objectives by ensuring leisure services are delivered which create, enhance and promote opportunity for involvement in sport, recreation and physical activity by all sections of the West Lancashire community.

The successful candidate will have a degree or equivalent level qualification in a relevant subject area (significant relevant experience may satisfy this requirement), evidence of continued professional development, experience of working in partnership to develop and deliver services, and experience of carrying out major funding applications and public and stakeholder consultation exercises. To fulfil this role you will need excellent verbal, presentation and written communication skills and the ability to motivate, influence and negotiate with both internal and external partners.

This is a fixed term opportunity for up to two years.
