Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is passionate about providing high quality services to our communities, residents, and businesses and this means we need to employ and retain the most talented and dedicated people. Situated within the heart of the Cambridge-Peterborough Growth Area, Huntingdonshire is a beautiful district that boasts thriving market towns and many attractive villages, each with its own identity. We are an innovative and forward-thinking Local Authority whose residents are at the heart of our decision making.

The One Leisure Active Lifestyles team provides an extensive physical activity programme focussing on getting individuals more active and reducing inactivity levels across the district. The population’s views and opinions on living a healthy lifestyle have changed following Covid-19, and as a service we aim to use this as an opportunity to help people become more active and improve their health and wellbeing. We are seeking an individual to join the team on a fixed term contract, with potential of a permanent role.

The individual should ideally possess a Level 3 Exercise Referral Qualification and with level 3 or level 4 specialist population qualifications and extensive experience of delivering and developing physical activity opportunities to these population groups.

You will undertake sessions on a 1-1 basis; teach group exercise; promote, advocate, and foster a ‘health and wellbeing’ community, and help us to celebrate our successes. An assured, confident manner, a flexible approach, a source of new innovative ideas, and excellent administrative skills with an attention to detail are essential. As is the ability to build effective relationships in this customer facing delivery role.

Above all, it is essential that you demonstrate behaviours in line with our values and passion and a commitment to continually seek to innovate and develop our workforce, which will, in turn, enable us to succeed in our strategic ambitions.

Please contact for an informal discussion or further information about the post.

We anticipate that interviews will be held the week commencing 3 January 2021.
