Scottish Sports Futures use the power of sport and physical activity to engage with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and families in Scotland and empower them to be confident, healthy, and happy.

We do this using our proven and recognised Sport for Change model and its range of person-centred, youth-led programmes that provide positive experiences, inspiring role models, engaging social education, training, and youth volunteering opportunities. As a result, we seek to encourage a positive change in young people’s attitudes and behaviour that enables them to recognise and fulfil their potential, and to make a valuable contribution to their peers and their community.

We are proud to have a culture which is inclusive and collaborative, where our people are valued and supported to lead and develop ground-breaking initiatives with young people and communities at the heart.

The Role

Regional Managers are responsible for overseeing a team of coordinators and delivery staff including volunteers, to deliver multiple SSF programmes designed to change lives of young people and achieve SSF’s strategic goals of Developing People, Improving Health and Wellbeing, and Strengthening Communities.

Managers have responsibility for developing local relationships, ensuring teams have representation on local groups, work with referral agencies and local authority partners to embed SSF programmes into local plans and ensure pathways into and out of SSF provision for young people. Managers have responsibility for regional budgets which will be complex and have multi-funders. They also have targets for generating enterprise and commissioned pieces of work. Managers provide regular monitoring and evaluation of projects for funder reports, to the Head of People and Programmes, external partners and will in turn disseminate learning to their teams.

Key relationships will be with sportscotland staff, governing bodies, local authority staff, schools, health, and community partners as well as SSF Senior Leadership Team (SLT) and managers.
