Age UK Somerset is an independent local charity working in Somerset and North Somerset. Our ‘Ageing Well’ service is dedicated to promoting the health and wellbeing of older people in our area.
Exercise is vital for older people, not only to improve or maintain all components of fitness but also to reduce the effect of age-related decline, help maintain independent living and reduce isolation. Group exercise offers a valuable social aspect and we are proud to deliver classes in a wide range of activities.
We currently have a job vacancy within the vibrant Ageing Well team.
Ageing Well Co-ordinator - North Somerset
Contract: Fixed Term to end March 2022 (extension possible subject to funding being achieved)
Hours: 14 hours per week

Do you have an enthusiasm for exercise and enjoy working within the fitness field?
As Coordinator, you will help support and develop our Ageing Well activities across North Somerset, working closely with the service’s Deputy Manager and Co-ordinator for Somerset.
Monitoring and improving class attendance levels, engaging with the community to explore the potential for new classes and developing partnerships will be a fundamental part of the role. The successful candidate will also use their excellent interpersonal and communication skills in overseeing our instructors and volunteers, as well as giving talks that encourage and inspire people to try physical activity, whether they are 55 or 95.
The postholder is responsible for their own administration and will therefore be competent in MS Office with an ability to use databases. A teaching qualification in exercise/physical activity is essential and experience in developing a project/service would be an advantage.
