Volunteer Inclusive Sports Activator

We are looking to recruit up to 10 student volunteer inclusive sports activators. The SU is working in partnership with NUS and Sport England to run a pilot project to make sport and physical activity more inclusive to people who identify as LGBT+. The SU is committed to ensuring all students are supported to have a life-enhancing University experience, and we strongly believe sport and physical activity should be welcoming to everyone.

Our activators will work to introduce and encourage all abilities into sport and/or physical activity in a fun, friendly and inclusive environment. 

Volunteers will be provided with training and ongoing development to enable them to deliver inclusive activity. Volunteers will receive support to achieve a level 1 coaching qualification, safeguarding and first aid training, and training in inclusivity.  

In the role, you will enable people to be active and try things that they previously felt they couldn’t do. The role will enable you to gain a better understanding of the LGBT community and make a positive difference to students’ lives. 

This opportunity is open to all students to apply - LGBT+ and Straight Allies. 

If you are interested in applying we are asking that you provide a copy of your CV and up to 200 words on why you would be well suited to the role to Alex Burnett
