Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) are seeking to recruit a Manager (Strategic Relationships) for two years. A key focus for this role will be the ability to influence the development of the Leicester and Leicestershire Local Industrial Strategy and the Leicester and Leicestershire Growth and Infra-Structure Plan from a health, well-being, physical activity and sport perspective.

The Manager (Strategic Relationships) role is a shared post between Sport England and Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport which will seek to change how strategy is grounded locally to meet the key strategic challenges and make best use and alignment of all the available resource, capacity and skills.

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 as 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 organisation 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 & Rutland Sport (LRS), has a very different and much closer connection to Sport England.

If you feel you have the right skills and passion for this area of work we would like to hear from you by sending in a covering letter (based on how you meet the Person Specification requirements) and a copy of your CV by going to East Midlands Shared Services

If you would like to discuss this role further or require additional information please contact John Byrne, CSP Director at j.byrne@lrsport.org or Telephone: 01 509 564852.
