About Us:
THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF GIRO’S PERSUASIVE POWERS


The Environment, Climate & Public Protection team in Westminster City Council is a world of extraordinary stories. We love it when our work touches lives. 

Take Stepping to the Beat, our 3k walk, jog or run for people with learning or physical disabilities or Autism, their families and carers. It’s a life-affirming, music-based event Coreen and Claudia are massively proud of – and they were keen for people to spread the word. So, imagine how thrilled they were when one of our residents, Giro, did just that. Advocating for people with disabilities at a planning meeting for transport in London, he was proudly wearing his event medal. And he decided to use it to encourage others. As he passed it around the room, Giro inspired lots more people with disabilities to get involved. Infectious enthusiasm goes a long way here. 

Please view the extraordinary story of Giro’s Persuasive Powers  HERE.


The Role:
As a Relationship Officer for Physical Activity & Sport, you can make your own powerful contribution to the health and wellbeing of everyone who lives, works and studies in Westminster.

You’ll be a key player in Active Westminster, a programme that promotes healthy and active lifestyles across the borough.

You will initiate and manage innovative community schemes that increase access to sport and physical activity by encouraging greater use of Westminster’s leisure centres, as well as of our streets and green spaces for walking, running, cycling and parkour.

Sourcing and securing external funding will also be a vital part of the role, as will building partnerships with a range of organisations. 

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.


About You:
With good knowledge of the physical activity, leisure and sports sector, you’re likely to have hands-on experience of managing health and wellbeing projects.

You’ll have proved your ability to initiate, develop and manage positive stakeholder relationships and to deliver excellent customer service.

Your strong project and budgetary management capabilities will be matched by well-developed communication, negotiation and influencing skills.

Some insight into the local authority environment would be helpful.
