Positive Futures is a national social inclusion programme using sport and leisure activities to engage with disadvantaged and socially marginalised young people. The programme aims to have a positive influence on young people's lives by widening horizons and providing access to new opportunities within a culturally familiar environment. Using sport and leisure activities as a catalyst to encourage project participation, young people are steered towards education, training and employment.

This is a newly-created 3-year fixed-term contract for a full-time position, as part of a joint partnership between the Trent Bridge Community Sports Trust, Rushcliffe Borough Council and the Football Foundation. 

You will be responsible for the management and co-ordination of the Positive Futures Programme in Cotgrave within Rushcliffe Borough.

You will have experience of engaging young people in a sporting and/or youth environment and, in particular, working with young people at risk of anti-social behaviour.

You will be innovative in terms of service delivery, and will develop a 3-year project plan which will support young people in their personal, social, leadership and sporting skills.

A key element of this post will be your ability to build good working relationships within a multi-agency environment, utilising key partners to support your programme delivery.

The successful candidate for this post will be a flexible worker, willing to work some evenings, with a hands-on approach, strong organisational and IT skills, and an ability to seek out and respond positively to development opportunities as they arise.
