The key purpose is to strengthen the relationship between local delivery and national programme design, ensuring resource rooted locally is well connected nationally, and local intelligence and 'on the ground' experience, informs the design of national programmes.

The unique element of this role is its aim of developing a reciprocal, efficient and effective working relationship between the national, non departmental public body working to deliver the Government's Strategy for an Active Nation, with a county based organisations which plays a significant role in influencing the implementation of key elements of national strategy at a local level.

The shared nature of this role (initially along with 7 other pilots nationally) creates a locally rooted shared workforce that, while employed by Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport (LRS), has a very different and much closer connection to Sport England.

- A degree or extensive experience in a senior role
- Excellent understanding and awareness of the policy and operating environment at the local level, understanding the cultural, political and stakeholder context to decide the best approaches
- Extensive experience of working with senior executive and political leaders, working at a strategic level to influence policy and delivery
