StreetGames is a fast-moving and innovative national charity with a sector-leading reputation for delivering sport and physical activity on the doorstep of deprived communities.

Our aim is to help young people and communities enjoy lives that are healthier, safer and more successful through sport and physical activity.

To do that, we work with community organisations to engage young people from lower socio-economic groups through sport and physical activity at the right time, in the right place, at the right price, in the right style and with the right people.

The role of the Partnership Sustainability Lead will form a crucial part of our approach to growing participation in sport among young people from the communities we work in. Working in an Area Team, reporting to the Area Lead and collaborating closely with local Doorstep Sport Advisors and Fieldworkers, the Partnership Sustainability Lead role will help community organisations to access new sources of income for the delivery of the local sporting offer through their ability to link the needs of investors in wider social outcomes with community organisations capability.

The Partnership Sustainability Lead will support both the national and regional work of the StreetGames Fundraising Team; ensuring national priorities are reflected in local work undertaken with groups of organisations and individual community organisations.

Who are we looking for?

StreetGames is looking for candidates with experience of successfully developing collaborative funding bids and proposals working with multiple partners.

You will have excellent networking and relationship building skills with the ability to apply these to a range of local, regional and national organisations.

With strong written communication skills, you can write concise and coherent funding bids, drawing on your experience of working with a range of different funders and stakeholders.

You will also be an excellent relationship builder and manager with experience of working collaboratively with funders and partners.

As the successful candidate you will be at self-starter maximising your excellent communication and people management skills.  Outcomes and solution focussed, you will possess a good knowledge of wider social outcomes and ways to address them for people living in the communities we interact and work with through sport and physical activity. 

This role is offered at 0.8FTE (28 hours per week). Other options such as job-share or part-time arrangements will be considered.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
