influence, include, inspire, insport

We are a small team of incredibly committed, passionate individuals whose shared purpose is to advocate for an inclusive approach within the sector.  We have recently developed a new strategy which sets an exciting and ambitious vision for the future.  We are in a position now where it is ever more vital that the impact and learning of our programmes and provision is showcased, and we have moved away from a traditional Key Performance Indicator model of measurement.  


The Role:

  1. Direct the generation and collection of data relevant to Disability Sport Wales (and other inclusive) programmes and provision
  2. Establish insight through relevant data analysis to identify and understand patterns, impact, learning and resource-need which will enable meaningful delivery of actions relevant to the DSW Strategy  
  3. Create insight-led learning resources (including education and training opportunities) which direct the inclusive future practice of organisations involved with physical activity (including sport) in Wales.      

Why should you apply for the job?
