Sport England's vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or level of ability, should feel able to engage in sport and physical activity. We are seeking to recruit a Planning Administrator to join our busy national planning administration team, based at Loughborough, to provide administrative support to Sport England’s planning function.
