We have an exciting new role in the Herts Sports & Physical Activity Partnership (HSP) team, which looks at how we can use the power of sport and physical activity to address social outcomes. We’re pleased to offer openings for four new Project Officers – Holiday Gap to join our friendly team that has been created as a result of funding from Herts County Council to deliver the Holiday Activity and Food Programme known in Hertfordshire as HAPpy.

Main duties and responsibilities

You will be responsible for the management, coordination and delivery of the HAPpy programme which has three delivery phases (Spring, Summer and Winter). The programme will require you to work closely with Herts County Council and the HSP’s coordinating partner Herts Community Foundation. The officer will need to work with a wide range community groups in order to maximise the impact of this programme and ensure its success.

You will be able to build trust with the local community partners to ensure that there is a good geographical spread of camps across the county, whilst making sure that areas of highest need are well catered for. The post holder will have to shape, initiate and develop relationships with primary and secondary schools across the county.

You will be responsible for the coordination and delivery of HSP’s Fit, Fed and Read programme which runs during all school holiday periods.

Some evening and weekend working will be required to enable delivery of HSP’s wider operations.

Skills and experience required

You will have previous experience in community development and community engagement work including partnership working, and experience coordinating and facilitating community projects and events. The successful candidate will be proficient in use of Microsoft Office and digital engagement tools, including social media platforms. A practical understanding of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion issues in sport and physical activity is essential as well as the ability to monitor and evaluate methods for community development work. You will have excellent organisational and interpersonal skills and be able to prioritise to meet different lead times.

You’ll be able to create good working relationships and have the ability to solve problems creatively.

Qualifications required

You will have a minimum of a Degree (or equivalent) OR have equivalent proven professional experience.

In the course of our work and University-led activities, there may be external contractual obligations where a further Enhanced Check is required. DBS checks may require renewal in line with policy.
