The English Institute of Sport (EIS):
The EIS exists to deliver outstanding performance support that enables UK High Performance System sports and athletes to excel.
The EIS is the world’s leading provider of Sports Science, Medicine, Technology and Innovation to high performance sport. It is unlike any other organisation in high performance sport, with an unrivalled network of experts in their fields delivering people-first solutions to over 40 Olympic and Paralympic Sports. Established in 2002, and a wholly owned subsidiary of UK Sport, the EIS has been providing support to Olympic and Paralympic sports for almost 20 years and is now one of the largest organisations in high performance sport globally.
At the EIS we have around 400 high performing and highly motivated staff and work in a complex environment of external stakeholder relationships. The EIS sits in a pivotal role in the UK within high performance sport. On a day to day basis EIS people provide outstanding support services to sports in our elite training centres. It is also at the heart of leading innovation across sport as well as being a key voice in the world of sports science and technical and medical challenges that will face our world of sport over the coming years; mental health, doping, safeguarding, concussion – to name just a few.
We recently launched a new L & D Strategy and implemented a new Learning Management System with the goal of transforming the way we deliver Learning & Development across the organisation.
We are now looking for an experienced Leadership & Management specialist who has a strong grounding in the design, development, and delivery of Leadership & Management Learning & Development solutions.
As this is a remote working role, you’ll need to be proactive and able to work independently and as part of a team. We are open to discussing flexible working patterns.
This is an exciting time for an exceptional individual to have a significant impact on the learning and development of Leaders and Managers working within the EIS and within the UK High Performance System. Building on the foundations developed to date, a critical priority is to devise, develop and implement a full journey of development and support for our Leaders and Managers, transforming our approach in this area. Working within a small and forming L & D team and closely with the wider UK Sport people development team this role will contribute to the development and delivery of a single learning strategy across the EIS with a specific lead on the delivery of our Leadership & Management solutions and support.
