Active Together (formerly Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport) is a partnership organisation working to help communities in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland get moving a little more.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Development Officer who would like to support us to work with communities, organisations and partners to deliver our Physical Activity Framework and support our vision of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland: a place where physical activity is part of daily life, leading to people living healthier and happier lives.

A critical part of improving the health and wellbeing of our local population is to ensure our built environment, spaces and places are designed and developed in a way that encourages residents and communities to be physically active.  For the future it's crucial that the design of our streets, neighbourhoods, town centres and residential developments improves walking, cycling, outdoor recreation and access to places for active use.

This exciting new role will lead our strategic healthy place making priority and work programme.  Working across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland you will support and influence the future design of our local built spaces and places, enabling people to have a greater choice in how they are physically active in the places they live, work and play.

You'll work in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders including planners, designers and developers, to integrate active design principles into policies and working practice and local developments.  The work will tackle barriers to active travel, promoting design considerations and incentives to improve community access to open spaces and facilities, enabling better local access to sport and physical activity provision.  You'll also support our partners with the design and development of local relevant strategies for sports facilities, playing pitches and open spaces.

For this role you'll be passionate about building physical activity and health into the design of our future built environment, as well as appreciate the importance that schools, sports facilities, community buildings, parks and open spaces play in the health of our population.  You may have specialist knowledge from either sports facility management, town/transport planning, landscape architecture or urban design.
