A key element of 'Sporting Future', the government's strategy for an active nation, is the drive to deliver a more productive and sustainable sports sector.

Sport England is seeking an experienced individual who can support local authorities in the achievement of local outcomes through effective and sustainable service delivery.

Financial pressures can conflict with the achievement of social objectives and a key element of this role will be to work with the sector (clients, delivery sector and influential organisations) to achieve a balance between sustainable financial performance and the achievement of social, health and broader economic outcomes.
