Kevin Hollis, Director for Leisure, Health and Recreation

Firstly, many thanks for taking the time to visit this site. The borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth is entering an exciting period of transformation and we are looking for several individuals who can join us on that journey.

Working with Warwickshire County Council, we have recently approved delivery of both our Transforming Nuneaton and Transforming Bedworth programmes. These long term and ambitious plans aim to develop both our town centres to boost economic growth, provide new employment opportunities and ensure best use of our green open spaces. Most relevant to the roles we are currently recruiting are our plans for future leisure developments, to include a new purpose built physical activity hub within Bedworth and enhancements to our leisure site within Nuneaton.

The roles we have available include Leisure and Health Manager who will be responsible for ensuring delivery of our Leisure Strategy and will manage our Sports Development team and the Civic Hall, the Borough’s theatre and entertainment venue.

We also have several roles available within our Parks and Greenspaces team which will be key in delivering on aims set out in the Council’s Open Space Strategy, including parks and conservation areas. This includes inputting into our Destination, Community and Local Parks Master Planning and creating outdoor Active Environments to support health and well-being.

All in all , our aim is to ensure that we continue to meet our ethos of making Nuneaton and Bedworth the place of choice to live, visit and work.

Once again, we thank you for the time in considering a career with Nuneaton and Bedworth Council and we look forward to your application.

About NUNEATON & bEDWORTH

About
NUNEATON
& bEDWORTH

Situated in the north of Warwickshire, the borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth has a diverse population of around 129,000. Bordering the districts of both North Warwickshire and Coventry, the borough is in an excellent position for transport links across both Warwickshire and the wider West Midlands.

Both Nuneaton and Bedworth are steeped in history and are mentioned as far back as the Doomsday Book. Both have a past in coal mining and are established market towns with successful markets still present today.

Perhaps most well known as being the birth place of the famous author George Eliot, Nuneaton is the largest of the two towns and attracts visitors from around Warwickshire. The River Anker runs though the town centre and into Riversley Park, a formal park that extends from the town centre to the outskirts.

Bedworth is the smaller of our two towns and one of its most notably building is the historical Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouses dating back to 1840. The town is also home to the Civic Hall, a multi purpose entertainment venue and theatre which overlooks the Miner’s Welfare Park, an extensive recreation space, including sports facilities and formal and informal park areas.
