Applications are invited for the full time post of Safety and Assurance Officer, Army Sport Control Board.

The Safety and Assurance Officer’s primary responsibility is to provide reassurance to the ASCB on the compliance by Army Sport Associations and Unions to current and recently issued safety and assurance policy.  The incumbent is to understand existing policy, making recommendations for improvement, conduct a series of advisory visits so as to execute HQ ASCB’s role in both 1st and 2nd Line of Defence assurance and to provide the same for those UK Armed Forces Sports for which the Army has the assurance lead.

The applicant should ideally be a retired Army Officer of minimum Maj rank or civilian equivalent. The post requires a sound knowledge of Army Practices and Procedures. The individual will have command experience and be able to demonstrate strong leadership, management and communication skills, together with a blend of sound judgement, tact and diplomacy. The post requires a team builder and motivator with proven experience of delivering/organising sport. Experience of public accounts, charitable law and non-public investment is desirable. Some travel and anti-social hours will be required.

In return, we offer excellent working conditions, a friendly and lively working environment, a generous leave entitlement, access to excellent sports facilities and even free car parking!  Although employed as a Crown Servant, the post is bi-analogous to the Civil Service and commands the same salary grading, plus participation in the Civil Service pension scheme.
