StreetGames is a fast-moving and innovative national charity with a sector-leading reputation for delivering sport and physical activity on the doorstep of deprived communities. We work with locally trusted organisations (LTOs) to engage young people from lower socio-economic groups through sport and physical activity at the right time, in the right place, at the right price, in the right style and through the right people. We aim to help young people and communities enjoy lives that are healthier, safer and more successful through sport.

The role of Partnership Sustainability Lead will form a crucial part of our approach to growing participation in sport among young people from disadvantaged communities between 2018 and 2021. Working in an Area Team, reporting to the Area Lead and collaborating closely with local Doorstep Sport Advisors, this role will help LTOs to access new sources of income for the delivery of the local sporting offer through their ability to link the needs of investors in wider social outcomes with LTO capability.

As Partnership Sustainability Lead, you will support both the national and regional work of the StreetGames Fundraising Team; ensuring national priorities are reflected in local work undertaken with groups of organisations and individual LTOs.

StreetGames are looking for candidates with experience of successfully developing collaborative funding bids and proposals working with multiple partners. You will have excellent networking and relationship building skills with the ability to apply these to a range of local, regional and national organisations. Strong written communication skills will mean that you can write concise and coherent funding bids, drawing upon your experience of working with a range of different funders. As the successful candidate you will be a self-starter with excellent communication and people management skills. You will be solution focussed and possess a good knowledge of wider social outcomes and how to address them for people living in lower socio-economic communities through sport and physical activity. 

This role is offered as a part-time (0.6 FTE) post. Other options including secondments will be considered in order to attract the right candidate.
