The 2012 Olympics will be a landmark here in Hackney. We see them as an ideal opportunity to create a long-term legacy for all our residents, as we invest in some very exciting projects, including the development of a new sports development team, leisure facilities and pre-Olympic training camps that meet the highest international standards. The excitement is enormous and we’re ready to do whatever it takes to build on our new three star status and reputation as one of London’s fastest improving councils - join us and make a difference in Hackney and expect to be stretched and stimulated every day.
Your first challenge will be to lead on the development of the Football Foundation bid for Hackney Marshes. When successful, you’ll be responsible for the future development of football in the area, including building a team of community coaches, raising finance and providing a link between partner organisations including voluntary organisations and existing sports clubs.
You’ll come to us with the ability to devise strategies for the service area and translate them into realisable plans, together with experience in managing staff and operational football projects and programmes alongside sport and physical activity provision. Aware of the issues surrounding the programme, you will also have sound communication skills.
