About Sports Development Assistant

We are looking for a self-motivated individual to support a range of health, sport and leisure work areas at Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, including events, consultation, marketing, monitoring/evaluation and identifying future funding opportunities, whilst gaining valuable on-the-job training.

The position is based at the main Council Offices in Wigston and the successful candidate will be expected to work a 30 hours per week, however this could be negotiated. The start date for the position is also negotiable.

Although this position is voluntary, expenses will be paid (travel and work related expenses). There will also be the opportunity for the successful candidate to access some CPD courses free of charge.

The position will require the candidate to be able to travel easily around the local area and potentially across the county, so although public transport could be relied upon, access to and use of a car would be preferable.

  • Closing date for applications: Friday 14 June 2019 (by 5:00 p.m.)
  • Interviews to be held from Monday 24 June to Friday 5 July 2019 (please inform us of any dates you are not available during this time)

To apply for this position, please send your CV together with the completed application form, setting out the relevant skills and experiences that present you as a strong candidate for this role. Please refer to the job description and person specification when producing your statement.

Please submit your application form and CV to OWBC HR Department by: Friday 14 June 2019 (5:00 p.m.)

If you have any queries please contact Avril Lennox (Head of Leisure and Wellbeing Services) on Leicester (0116) 2572673 or email
