Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA)

 

Inspectors (x3)

 

The Sports Grounds Safety Authority is recruiting three Inspectors. One post will be a permanent appointment, the other two will be for a two year fixed term period.

 

Starting salary: £45,307

 

Location: Based at home

 

Closing Date: 14 June 2016

 

Interview dates: 6-8 July2016

 

Working Arrangement: Full time

 

These roles require significant travel, weekend and evening work, mainly within the UK but also abroad.

 

SGSA Inspectors generally work from home, covering a wide geographical area.  Successful candidates will work under the supervision of the Chief Inspector and will take lead responsibility for a group of Premier and Football League clubs within their area.  They will also be expected to take responsibility for specific policy areas or projects including taking a lead on sports other than football. The geographical spread of clubs for which each Inspector has responsibility may change and the successful candidates will be expected to travel extensively and work flexibly. 

 

The Inspectors' role involves frequent discussions with Local Authorities, football clubs and other interested parties, with visits to sports grounds on both event and non-event days.  They advise and assist clubs and Local Authorities on a wide range of ground and spectator safety issues. Inspectors may also be required to develop and deliver training on spectator safety related issues.

 

The role will continue to evolve with the development of the SGSA. Inspectors will be responsible for providing advice guidance on a wide spectrum of spectator safety issues across a range of sports and as the Authority develops its commercial activity, this will be on both a national and international basis.
