We are looking for an energetic and engaging practitioner to develop, coordinate and deliver a range of sports based wellbeing programmes in partnership with sports providers across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

The post holder will sit within our new Community Partnerships Team; a team focussed on offering young people opportunities to improve their wellbeing through connecting to each other, their communities and the things them feel good and they enjoy.

The successful candidate will be relatable, inspiring and have a personal interest and regular practice in sport. You will have considerable experience working with young people and mental health. You will be able to critically engage with issues relating to mental health; understanding it within a social and political context and developing programmes that respond accordingly.

You will be excellent at building working relationships with other providers and will be able to create and deliver engaging thoughtful workshops for groups of young people from disadvantaged and ‘hard to reach’ backgrounds.

This is an exciting opportunity to fill a new position at OTR, and the post holder will have the chance to develop this roll from scratch; using their skills, knowledge and abilities to create a new and pioneering service within a youth mental health setting.
