Play England is looking for an experienced development officer to deliver the new ‘Adventure into Sport’ project. The post holder will work with a play project in Bradford, Yorkshire and another in Tower Hamlets, London to support the development and delivery of a pilot programme using play provision as a springboard for children aged 5+ and their parents to get into sport and an active lifestyle.

The successful candidate will have experience of successfully supporting communities to engage in developing play activities for and with local children and young people, planning and co-ordinating the delivery of projects, working closely with partner organisations and networks, and monitoring and reporting outcomes to funders.
