The Community Manager will lead on enabling the Sport Birmingham team and the partners who invest here, to understand and connect with the local community organisations, networks and audiences across our diverse City.
Working closely with the Senior Partnership Manager you will develop effective relationships across system partners including: Sport for development partners, Birmingham City Council (various departments), anchor community organisations and National Governing Bodies of Sport.
Playing a key role in achieving our ‘Uniting Birmingham’ strategy, the role will engage, inspire and invest time and resources into local communities, providing advice and guidance, and where appropriate support groups to access funding and opportunities to help them grow and sustain.
We know that to reach inactive groups, many of the partners we fund do not have sport and activity as their primary purpose, and so the role is ‘more than sport’, working across the place and through voluntary sector organisations to find the audiences that can benefit most from being active. These could be for example, from low-income areas, people with long term health condition or disabilities, or from ethnically diverse communities.
We encourage applications from all backgrounds, communities and industries, and are committed to having a team that is made up of diverse skills, experiences and abilities. We are committed to equality and diversity within our workforce and all opportunities provided by Sport Birmingham.
