MOVE MORE MENTOR ( 12 month fixed term)

The Move More programme is a behavioural change programme that addresses inactivity in adults across Derby City.  This programme forms part of the 'Derby a City on the Move', funded through Sport England’s 'Get Healthy, Get Active' Fund.    

The role of the Move More Mentor is to identify and work with inactive staff and students across the University of Derby and other key partners.  The focus of the role is to support clients to think through their current activity levels and how they may wish to address the barriers in place to becoming more active, utilising a motivational interviewing, person-centred counselling approach. The Mentor will also support the development of a 'Move More' programme, offering a variety of structured and unstructured physical activity opportunities, across the University of Derby and other key partners in order to support a reduction in sedentary behaviour and a sustained increase in activity.  

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expect everyone who works for us to also share this commitment and to treat people with courtesy and respect.
