Activity & Wellbeing Practitioner X 2: Help for Heroes

ACTIVITY & Wellbeing Practitioner X 2 

1 Sport practitioner / 1 Activity practitioner

At Help for Heroes, we believe those who serve our country deserve support when they are wounded. Every day, men and women must leave their career in the Armed Forces as a result of physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever. We help them, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives.

Who are we you are wondering? We are experts and beginners. Generalists and specialists. Ordinary people with an extraordinary passion towards making a positive change to the lives of our veterans (and having fun while doing it).

As One Team we share a philosophy – I.C.A.R.E. It’s the way we walk and talk, the way we interact with others and how we approach everything we do. We are:

Innovative – Collaborative – Authentic – Resourceful – Energetic. 

We have an incredible opportunity for an Activity & Wellbeing Practitioner - to join our team in Scotland on a permanent basis. We are recruiting for two roles; Activity and Wellbeing Practitioner (Activity) and Activity and Wellbeing Practitioner (Sport).

We are accepting applications for these roles either on a full time or part time basis. Full time applicants should be able to demonstrate experience in both sport and activity as outlined in the job descriptions. Alternatively, we will accept applications from part time employees to fulfil each role on a job share basis. Please indicate in your application if you wish to apply for the role on a full-time basis or specifically the Activity Practitioner or Sport Practitioner role on a part time basis.
