Project Development Coordinator (Active Lifestyle Programme)

Location: LSESU, Saw Swee Hock Student Center, Holborn, London, WC2A 2AP

Salary: £27, 438.29

Contract type: Fixed Term – 12 Months

Job description - Project Development Co-ordinator (Active Lifestyle)


Are you passionate about getting students physically active? Do you want the chance to develop the sporting offer for students at LSE? Do you want to help students develop healthy habits 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 front line supporting our work with clubs, societies, members and instructors to deliver sessions which enable students to be active whilst studying. Another part of the role will see you using research, data and knowledge to design a new business model for the programme, with the overall aim of getting students participating in regular activity, developing our sporting pathway and making recreational activity a permanent part of the LSE experience.

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

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.

The ideal candidate will have experience of planning and delivering innovative sporting initiatives, excellent people skills and strong experience of project management, ideally within Higher Education or sporting activity programmes. We welcome applications from those with experience working in sport in a Higher Education setting, but this is not essential, and candidates with experience from other areas will be considered. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, the ability to enthuse students and be able to work with people on all levels, from students taking part in sports for the first time to senior staff at LSE.


If you wish to informally discuss the role, please get in touch with Connar Walford, Opportunities and Development Manager on arrange a chat.
