The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity
Launched in 2011, CIMSPA is the professional development body for the UK’s sport and physical activity sector.
CIMSPA has been awarded chartered status by the Privy Council, which came into effect at the start of January 2012.
CIMSPA provides leadership, support and empowerment for professionals working in sport and physical activity and a single unified voice for the sector.
The Institute holds two long term strategic priorities:
- To provide opportunities for young leaders to develop and succeed
- To provide leadership on the development and management of career pathways
The vision statement of the Institute is: “To develop a vibrant, UK wide sport and physical activity sector, led by professionals providing advocacy and leadership and working in partnership with its stakeholders to help ensure the highest standards of service delivery.”
As an inclusive organisation we welcome applications from under-represented groups such as black, Asian and minority groups and disabled people.
