Job opportunity - with Kirklees Active Leisure
Health Partnerships Manager
Kirklees Active Leisure
£37,042 per annum
Huddersfield, UK
01 Nov 2019
Employment Type Fixed Term Contract
Contract Hours 37.00

Role Description
​KAL (Kirklees Active Leisure) is the charitable, not-for-profit, leisure trust which manages 13 major leisure facilities across the Kirklees district of West Yorkshire. With almost 3m customer visits every year, the recent introduction of our fantastic Family Attraction products (yeahdaysout.co.uk ) and with a new £16m leisure centre being developed, it's a positive time to be joining KAL. ​

The KAL Health Partnership Manager is an exciting, new opportunity for an initial 2-year period, with the successful postholder expected to lead on developing KAL's work with the range of local health agencies, learning from good practice taking place across the UK and applying this to a Kirklees context. While initially for a 2-year period, the ambition is to work towards making this a permanent position. The position is jointly funded by KAL and Kirklees Council.

The postholder will work closely with colleagues from Kirklees Council's Public Health service to identify potential opportunities for KAL to explore with local health commissioners and providers, while also ensuring that KAL effectively links with the Council's own, wider health delivery, especially in terms of the emerging Integrated Wellness Model and the work of the Council's Community Plus service.

This position is key to encouraging a wider customer base to make use of the KAL managed facilities across Kirklees, with current non-users supported to gain both physical and mental health benefits by making use of local leisure facilities.

Once the postholder has identified potential opportunities for KAL to contribute to a health programme, the postholder will be expected to liaise with colleagues across KAL to develop an appropriate business case and help progress the project through to implementation, leading on maintaining the partnership link between KAL and the relevant health agency and contributing to the effective monitoring & evaluation of programmes that are developed.

You will be expected to have a strong understanding of the various health providers and programmes operating in Kirklees and, ideally, elsewhere in the UK, and have an appreciation of the services provided by KAL and how these can potentially complement health programme delivery. Importantly you will have a good understanding of the terminology used by the health agencies and be able to apply this to a KAL setting, supporting KAL's own staff to better communicate with the various health agencies.

Your ability to work effectively in partnership will be key, identifying and then developing opportunities for joint working that will be beneficial to both KAL and the other party.

If you have the right skills, experience, ability and passion to be part of the KAL success story then we'd love to hear from you.

In return, we can offer you a great package of benefits through our Staff and Family Membership scheme, which provides virtually free facilities for you and a greatly discounted rate for some of your family. Plus, we also have a great discount website which can save you and your family loads of money too!

We have a generous annual leave entitlement and can offer an excellent pension scheme (West Yorkshire Pension Fund).

For further information and to discuss this exciting role further please contact Alasdair Brown, KAL's Chief Executive, on 07528-252084.

The application closing date for this opportunity is 5pm on Friday 1st November 2019.

Please note: interviews will be held on the morning of 21/11/19 and the morning of 29/11/19 and short listed candidates will be expected to be available on both of these dates.
