Job Description:

The Executives In Sport Group are working exclusively on behalf of Swim England to recruit their newly created Head of Membership Development.


Swim England is the national governing body for swimming in England. They ensure that people learn how to swim, enjoy the water, and compete in their sports of swimming, diving, water polo and synchronised swimming.

They are seeking a commercially astute individual to develop a sector leading membership programme that engages swimming’s huge participation base. They already have 190,000 members in their clubs but with 14 million people swimming and 1.2 million children on Swim England’s renowned Learn to Swim programme, they are determined to grow this number significantly.


Increasing their membership will enable them to engage with their huge participation base and is a central component in achieving their vision of “a nation swimming”.   As an organisation which has recently achieved charitable status, income received from their ambitious plans will enable them to expand their programmes and ensure that every child learns to swim, every community has access to water and every medal achieved inspires the nation.

Whilst they have developed early thinking on their approach to a new membership strategy, this is a fantastic opportunity for someone to join them at the start of this journey and make a mark on the organisation and the future of dream big aquatic sports.


·      Previously developed and delivered successful consumer membership programmes from strategy through to delivery.

·     Experienced in preparing business cases for change and are able to bring stakeholders along on the journey. You are creative and a self-starter.

·     Ability to quickly assimilate and analyse data and use it to continually develop products once launched.

·     Take a commercial approach ensuring return on investment for all resources.

If you feel you have the suitable skills and attributes for this position, we would like to hear from you.

To apply please press the apply button or get in touch with Tom at The Executives in Sport Group for an informal discussion.  

Please note that shortlisted candidates will be contacted within 72 hours of application and due to the volume of applications received, we are unable to provide specific feedback on unsuccessful applications.
