The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust was set up by Double Olympic Champion, Dame Kelly Holmes in 2008. As you can imagine, the organisation has her drive and determination running through its DNA. Eight years later and they continue to successfully support young disadvantaged people and supporting athletes as they transition. You can read about our first hand experience of their work here.
The premise behind the organisation is brilliant, harnessing the incredible focus, success and determination of high achieving athletes to help support the progress of young people who haven’t had the same opportunities. To date Dame Kelly Holmes Trust has reached over 300,000 young people and have also supported over 400 world class athletes to lead successful post-sporting career lives.
Personality is everything in this role as is an understanding of the sports sector and an entrepreneurial approach.
There is already an existing income generation team who are bringing in £4 million and the ambition is to get this to £8 million by 2020.
We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running and quickly ascertain how best to manage and support an existing successful team. Also someone able to look around at the work of the organisation and understand how to monetise aspects of their work. There are a lot of very exciting opportunities at Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and a lot of talented people, we want to bring on board another talented person who can bring all this together and push the income to £8million!
