Sadly our physical activity habits as humans have changed. Our lives have become far less active in recent years which has a direct impact on our physical health, mental health and wider wellbeing. For some, regular movement is an embedded habit, but with more than 166,000 adults categorised as physically inactive locally, it's clear that many don't have the time, inclination or ability to change without help. We need to find new, more creative ways to encourage active lifestyles.
At Active Cheshire, we work alongside a wide range of partners involved in the design and delivery of physical activity and sport. Our work is less 'hands on' and more about understanding people and how we might encourage a change in their physical behaviour and habits. So, we are not the girls in the tracksuits or the guys in lycra ... we're the ones learning about what motivates people and the affect that place has on lifestyle habits. We are the team encouraging small changes to your daily routine -- walking the long way-round, taking the stairs, sitting less. Because we believe that for the least active people, small steps can deliver big impact.
We work at pace. Our dynamic, diverse team will expect a lot of you! We seek high-calibre, enterprising people with bright ideas and the ability and confidence to try something new. You will have an energetic approach to your work and a real interest in people. You will be a strong communicator with a willingness to forge partnerships both internally and externally. We have a strong work ethic and a passion for excellence.
But being sporty is not a pre-requisite for the job -- we value skills, experience and perspective from outside of the traditional sporting sector, so if you have the interest, skills and aptitude, drop us a line. We value diversity and welcome applications from all suitably qualified people regardless of race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. We offer a terrific working environment with great benefits and flexibility.
Are you MOVED to act? Drop us a copy of your CV with an accompanying email that sets out your (role) interest and a compelling case for you to join our team by 12 noon on 15th September 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
