Sported is one of the UK’s leading Sport for Development charities, helping more than 3,000 community sport and youth groups survive and thrive. With the support of over 300 knowledgeable and passionate volunteers, and a network of sporting Ambassadors across the whole of the UK, we enable our members to fulfil their mission and do what they do best; use the power of sport to transform the lives of young people facing challenge and disadvantage, and build stronger, safer communities.

Inspired by, and harnessing the power of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Sported has built a powerful profile and reputation which enables us to represent our members at the highest levels.

We are now seeking our next Chief Executive Officer to succeed Chris Grant and lead Sported in the next phase of its evolution, growing our reach and impact still further. As CEO, you will manage a remarkable team with diverse backgrounds and specialisms, as well as champion our committed volunteers. You will ensure the financial sustainability of the Foundation through effective fundraising, and as an influential advocate for the power of sport to change lives and communities for the better, you will work to build and steward relationships with a wide range of policy-makers and other stakeholders.
