Role

Scottish Sports Futures use the power of sport and physical activity to engage with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people 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

SSF Coordinators are responsible for the ongoing coordination of service delivery in either a designated geographic location or for a specific programme or project. They will act as a critical conduit between strategy and delivery and be responsible for the recruitment and retention of sessional delivery staff and volunteers.

SSF coordinators have responsibility for achieving strategic goals of Developing People, Improving Health and Wellbeing and Strengthening Communities.

This role has a national remit and will involve regular travel across Scotland as well as regular evening and weekend work.

The Youth Development Coordinator will have a focus on Mental Health and Wellbeing and will work in close partnership with SSF strategic partners Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH).

SSF, in carrying out its functions as a “sport for change” charity delivering programmes to young people across Scotland, is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, and to ensuring that no individual is discriminated against in the planning and delivery of any activities.
