We are seeking to appoint an individual who can help make our students healthier and happier through organising and running fun, inclusive and engaging activities that target groups who do not traditionally take part in sports and individuals who are inactive or who rarely engage in physical activity.  We want to enable students to adopt and maintain a physically active lifestyle, improve their wellbeing and develop their essential skills. 

NewVIc recognises the value of sport, fitness and physical activity in the lives of young people. We have a well-established Sports Academy offering a range of opportunities from recreational to team and elite sports and we also have the benefit of some excellent facilities on campus.  If you are passionate about making a contribution to ensuring that all students are able to benefit, in terms of their health and wellbeing, from being able to access opportunities to be physically active at NewVIc then we would love to hear from you. 

We offer you a warm welcome to NewVIc - a place where all ambitions are celebrated. As one of the largest sixth form colleges in London (more than 3,000 students), we are a non-selective, diverse and secular college, proud to have launched over 50,000 young people onto university, training and employment since we were founded in 1992.

In 2019, the College was graded overall as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, and ‘Outstanding’ for our provision of personal development, behaviour and welfare. We are very proud to be a three-time silver award winner at the Pearson National Teaching Awards, where in 2020, we made history by becoming the first ever provider to win two awards in a single year.

At NewVIc, we have a unique commitment to social impact - which means we support our staff and students to have a positive effect on the world. We believe that everybody has the power to make a positive impact on society - small changes that add up to make the world a better place.

Our motto is: Diverse in Ambition, United in Success

What’s in it for you?

We offer the opportunity to help develop your skills and knowledge in a friendly team environment, plus a range of benefits including a career average pension scheme (LGPS), employee assistance programme, onsite parking, cycle to work, onsite canteen, TECH Scheme, Eye Care support and full access to the onsite gym.

We are committed to creating and promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce that better reflects the wider community we support. We particularly welcome applicants from groups currently under-represented in senior roles, including females, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), people with disabilities and from the LGBTQ community.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of our students and expect everybody working for the College to share this commitment.  We actively seek DBS clearance checks for applications of employment as part of our safeguarding procedures.
