BF is recruiting for a Coaching and Workforce Manager.

About the Role

This role contributes to our organisational goal to increase the quality and quantity of inclusive opportunities to participate in the sport of fencing, creating a long term sustainable structure capable of welcoming and retaining more people in the sport.

It will do this through developing and supporting coaches and workforce both in BF affiliated clubs, as well as those external delivery partners who are already providing opportunities for people from under-represented groups to take part in fencing.

This role will be focussed on creating inclusive environments for new and existing members and participants by developing, supporting and encouraging existing and new coaches and club workforce to improve their skills and expand their understanding of how to create inclusive cultures that meet the needs of local communities and contribute to Sport England’s Uniting the Movement strategy.

This role will work as part of the wider Coaching and Workforce team to support the implementation of the existing Coaching Framework, with a particular focus on grassroots fencing.
