About Director of Active Norfolk

ith Norfolk County Council as its host, all Active Norfolk staff are employees of the authority, but the organisation maintains financial independence and manages its own governance structures to operate and ensure compliance with government requirements.

With a strong strategy in place, mature relationships locally and nationally, and a high-performing team committed to continuous improvement, Active Norfolk is seeking an inspirational leader to drive forward the organisation to shape a healthier and more active future for the people of Norfolk.

We're open to applications from a variety of backgrounds. You don't need to come from the world of physical activity, but you must believe in the power of sport and physical activity to positively impact lives, as well as have a desire to reduce inequalities. We are looking for an experienced leader, equally comfortable engaging with senior leaders as well as local community groups. You will need to be a big-picture, strategic thinker and excellent management skills and the ability to nurture a team are a must to empower Active Norfolk's biggest asset, its team, to fulfil their own potential and drive the organisation forward.

We think the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Experienced leadership qualities, including a proven track record of driving, developing and nurturing high performing teams. Someone who will be able to empower the Active Norfolk team to fulfil their potential and drive the organisation forward.
  • The ability to operate at both a strategic and an operational level, and to bridge the gap between. A big-picture, strategic thinker who can also maintain an eye for detail to ensure operational performance.
  • Strong communication, influencing and interpersonal skills, including the ability to operate effectively and build relationships with a complex and diverse range of stakeholders, including local and national partners, senior colleagues and community groups.
  • The ability to build on the strong existing strategy and relationships that are already in place to continuously improve and evolve the organisation. Someone who is comfortable building and developing partnerships that will support the long-term sustainability of Active Norfolk.
