An exciting opportunity has arisen for you to play a key role in shaping the delivery of sport, physical activity and arts development across the district of North Kesteven. We are looking for an experienced professional to oversee the delivery of an extensive portfolio of services which include two refurbished and award winning Leisure Centres, a Sports and Physical Activity Outreach programme, Countryside Service, Whisby Natural World Centre, ArtsNK (Arts Development) and the National Centre for Craft and Design. The Council is currently in the process of procuring new contracts for the delivery of its service offer which will operate from April 2018 onwards. You will have an opportunity to work towards the implementation of the new contracts during this exciting time, and to facilitate their success thereafter.

The Council has recently adopted a new Sports and Physical Activity Strategy and Arts Strategy, and which identify a number of Priority Outcomes that are being used to inform service delivery, including targeted interventions. The Council is also one of four UK Local Authorities to be selected to participate in the PHE funded ‘Whole Systems Approach to Obesity’ Pilot Programme, demonstrating the Councils commitment to promoting health and wellbeing. You will be responsible for ensuring that the new strategies are embedded into service delivery in order to encourage more active and healthier citizens and communities.

You will have experience of contract management related to the delivery of leisure and cultural services, including working with local communities and Partnership organisations. This management position will require the use of a car for work purposes and due to the nature of the role, candidates must be able to work flexible hours including some weekends and evenings.

In return, we offer the opportunity to work for an ambitious and high performing local authority, with a commitment to support your personal development and help you achieve your career goals. We are a predominately rural authority, but with good access to the East Coast Mainline and the A1, and within close proximity of the vibrant, historic city of Lincoln.
