About Project Manager – Mental Health and Sport & Physical Activity

Dorset Mind is excited to be launching a new work stream focusing on the links between good mental health and physical activity.

They are seeking a Project Manager to start work on this programme including the set up and development of the new 'Get Set to Go' project in partnership with Active Dorset and Dorset Race Equality Council.

The successful candidate will have a keen interest in how physical activity and participation in sport can influence mental health. They will have held a similar position before with a track record of success.

The Get Set to Go programme is an exciting partnership project designed to support people experiencing difficulty with their mental health to participate in physical activity. It will focus in three localities across Dorset from Weymouth in the West, Sherborne in the north of the county and as far east as Christchurch. It will have a particular focus on involving participants from isolated communities. So the post holder will need to travel often and they will fully embrace diversity and inclusion. They will have exceptional interpersonal and influencing skills, show aptitude for training and have the ability to enthuse others about the project.

Due to the nature of the Get Set to Go partnership the post holder will work between the office locations of all three partnership organisations as required.

The role is for 24 hours a week.
