About Young People Lead

Being physically active is good for us, for society, health, and even for the economy. There's no doubt about that. But how do we get people moving more? That's a bit trickier, and the need varies from place to place, programme to programme, and person to person.

As one of 43 Active Partnerships (APs) across England, Active Partners Trust, working in Derbyshire and Notts, teams up with local councils, community groups, businesses, healthcare organisations, charities, and more to find out what's needed.

This means asking questions, making suggestions, sharing our knowledge, finding the right partners, and spotting opportunities, all to make movement part of everyday life. Because when we all work together, we can better understand, reach, and support the people who need it most.

Making our Move – Our shared vision for Uniting the Movement in Notts and Derbyshire is a new plan to guide our and partners' work over the next 10 years - where we work and how we work.

As the Young People Lead at Active Partners Trust (APT), you will have key role in supporting the delivery of this vision.

You'll work with a range of partners and young people in a place, to understand why young people, who experience the greatest inequalities, are the least active. Share and use this insight to inform our and partners work. Partners you will work with include School Games Organisers(SGOs), early years providers, schools, further and higher education, children's services, health partners and community organisations.

We are looking for someone to join us who:

  • Believes in the value of physical activity
  • Believes in our values and behaviours (See JD)
  • Is committed to reducing inequalities in physical activity and understands that some neighbourhoods and communities need more support

Diverse talent is underrepresented in APT. We welcome applications from individuals representing different race, ethnicity, disability, or any protected characteristics, to help us understand and work with all communities.

Working for Active Partners Trust, you'll become part of a small friendly team with the following benefits;

- Flexible home, or office working

- Healthy work/life balance

- Generous holiday allowance

- Attractive pension scheme

- Substantial training and personal development opportunities
