The University recognises sport as a distinctive part of campus life and student experience, and an important vehicle for personal development and for extending its wider community engagement. It recently reviewed its strategic priorities and identified the following four areas as priorities (in order of importance):

  1. Increasing student participation levels in sport and healthy activities.
  2. Improving performance in student sporting competition through the continued development of an elite sport environment.
  3. Provide staff with opportunities to access sporting facilities or undertake healthy activities
  4. External and community usage of facilities.

This post is an opportunity for an ambitious sports industry professional to help shape the next game-changing phase of sport and physical activity development at the University of Bristol.

The closing date for applications is midnight on Sunday the 1st September.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
