Are you passionate about improving lives through leisure? Freedom Leisure are committed to contributing to a happier and healthier nation. Community Leisure is about more than fitness and gym provision; we want our customers to have fun, improve themselves, feel included, not be judged and importantly have access to our supportive teams and their expertise.

To achieve this, we are recruiting a driven and innovative Healthy Communities Manager to manage our health and physical activity programme across Derbyshire Dales.

Our ideal candidate will have strong relationship management skills, be an excellent communicator and have a successful track record in managing health- related projects within community-settings. With experience in sports development, physical activity and/ or Health Referral, we are looking for someone who can manage resources to deliver quality-assured programmes that are supported by national guidance, best practice and can evidence their impact. We are looking for someone with demonstrable experience of securing external funding but most importantly the ability to work collaboratively with partners from the public, private, community and voluntary sector to deliver sustainable, participant- focussed services. The role requires you to have a valid driving licence, and access to a car, as you will be required to travel across Derbyshire Dales and to various locations across the Country.
