New Development Team Vacancy


Community and workforce Development Officer

FUll time [salary circa £27000 - £29000]

Scottish Archery has recently secured increased investment from sportscotland and Archery GB to deliver on the new strategic plan for the sport. This plan is phase 2 of “Making Sport Limitless” and focuses on “Building Archery Communities”. This is both an exciting and challenging time for the sport and Scottish Archery is currently seeking to appoint a brand new role focussing on community and workforce development to support us on this new strategic journey.


This is a national remit that will focus primarily on the following areas:


  • Create and develop strong partnerships with community organisations around clubs with a desire to develop, provide the best possible member experience and be representative of the communities they operate in.


  • Develop relationships with national and local organisations to understand their needs and where we can help to change lives.


  • Lead on the development of officials and tournament organisers, continue the work to develop our competition pathway in partnership with our tournament organisers (TO) sub committee. With a particular focus on diversifying our workforce and well as improving quantity and quality.


  • Work closely with the Club & Coach Development Officer to create sustainable changing lives projects around clubs keen to improve the member pathway experience.


The role requires an experienced officer with both project management and relationship development experience. You should have an understanding of the changing lives approach and engaging with new and diverse groups. Experience in developing partnerships and plans are essential for this role. Experience in a sporting/youth work setting is essential to this role.


The role will require regular evening and weekend work.


The position is offered initially until 31st March 2025. The success of the post and the availability of additional funding will determine its extension thereafter.


If you wish an informal conversation around the role please contact Alan Martin on alan.martin@scottisharchery.org.uk
