Manager of Sport Development

Permanent, full-time position based in Halifax

It is an exciting time to work in sport! After a year of consultation, many changes are now underway as we operationalize our new strategic plan, roll out new approaches and technologies to support provincial sport organizations, all the while prototyping new models for sport delivery around the province.

Reporting to the Director of Sport, the Manager of Sport Development will play a key role in this work. You know the powerful role sport can play when it comes to building community, individuals and positive social change. At the same time, you recognize there are barriers to sport such as cost, infrastructure, access, competition for time, etc. An innovative thinker and a terrific collaborator, you are passionate about solutions to make sport options more accessible for more people. You are highly organized and proficient in leading, monitoring and implementing programs and managing teams, and you have a solid understanding of the Canadian and Nova Scotia sport system. Does that sound like an opportunity that was custom built for you? If so, we want to hear from you! READ MORE

Sport Fund Success Story

Lunenburg Rowing Club

Five years ago, The Lunenburg Yacht Club introduced rowing as a means to grow their participation. Today, the club has nearly 40 members and a new program was recently launched offering sailing and rowing under the same membership.

“The application process is straight-forward and the funds we have received have been essential to building our program” said Lunenburg Rowing Club founder, Karen Kinley. Kinley says there’s a direct coloration between the funding and their growing participation. “Our membership has grown mostly because of the increased and improved equipment we can offer to our rowers.” Sport Fund provided the organization with the financial support required to purchase and maintain equipment and build outdoor boat storage.

Sport Fund supports the growth of sport at the community level by relieving the financial stress associated with start-up costs and equipment. To learn more about how Sport Fund can help your organization, click here
