Job description


LSESU were successful in 2014 in receiving three years of funding from the Sport England University Activation Fund to run the Active LifeStylE Programme. After a successful first year getting 800 plus new students active, we need someone new to take on the challenge of expanding and embedding the project at LSE.


Are you passionate about getting students physically active? Do you want the chance to develop a new sporting offer for students at LSE? Do you want to help students develop a sporting habit for life?


If the answer is yes then this role is for you. Our members are some of the most ambitious and capable students at any university, and we believe they deserve the opportunity to be able to easily access sport and physical activity as part of their experience at LSE.


You will be on the frontline supporting our clubs to deliver beginner sessions and start development teams, work together with societies to deliver activities for their members, build partnerships with LSE departments and Halls to deliver activities for our students and run weekly intramural leagues/ladders. With the overall aim of getting students participating in regular activity, developing our sporting pathway and making sport part of the LSE experience.


You will work with, develop and build partnerships and working relationships with students, sport delivery staff, LSE departments and other universities in London.


We are committed to providing excellent opportunities for our staff to learn and develop within their roles and offer an excellent environment in which you can grow in experience and skills.


This is a fixed term post with a strong possibility of it becoming permanent during the course of the project.


We are seeking an enthusiastic individual who is passionate about sport and getting people of all abilities and backgrounds involved in sport. You will have excellent people skills and be able to work with people on all levels, from students taking part in sport for the first time to senior staff at LSE. You will have experience of project management, ideally in sport.


The ideal candidate will have experience of delivering innovative sporting initiatives, excellent people skills and a strong understanding of planning and evaluation. We welcome applicants with experience working in sport in a higher education setting, but this is not essentia. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and the ability to enthuse students.
