Job Description

Our vision is ‘Tennis opened up’, and our mission is to grow tennis by making it relevant, accessible, welcoming, and enjoyable. We’re here to govern and develop tennis in Britain, from grassroots participation through to the professional game.

LTA wants tennis to be open to as many people as possible, across the whole of Britain. In order to achieve this, it must develop and implement the highest safeguarding standards across tennis. As part of the Safeguarding Team, the Regional Safeguarding Officer plays a key role in delivering the LTA Safeguarding Strategy (2021-23) by taking a pro-active approach to safeguarding and providing high quality auditing of venues and county associations. The Regional Safeguarding Officer also plays a key role in ensuring high safeguarding and casework standards and continuously improving safeguarding awareness across tennis.

This role involves frequent travel within the Midlands region, which encompasses Derbyshire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.  Occasional travel to the National Tennis Centre in London will also be required. A flexible work pattern (evenings and weekends as required) is essential.

An Enhanced DBS check is required for this role and you must be a car driver with a valid UK driving license, due to the nature of the role.

Our Culture

The LTA, through its vision “Tennis Opened up”, is committed to creating a diverse environment where all colleagues feel included and a strong sense of belonging. We are proud to actively invite applications from all candidates who meet the essential criteria and can work in the UK. We commit that everyone will receive equal consideration for employment irrespective of your ethnicity, religion, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, age, any disability, marital or civil partnership status, and pregnancy or maternity status.

The LTA Tennis Foundation is a new tennis charity that partners with brilliant people and organisations to improve lives through tennis. It shares the LTA’s vision of ‘Tennis Opened Up’, and it wants to use our sport to make a real difference to people across the whole country. All LTA colleagues have the chance to get involved with the LTA TF, with some directly involved in delivering and leading its work.

To truly deliver our vision of “Tennis Opened up”, we believe it is critical that the LTA plays our part in contributing to a healthier and more sustainable society. We want to grow tennis in Britain, but do so in a responsible way, protecting and supporting the environment and working with everyone in the sport to tackle our climate impacts. We are committed to ensuring a lasting future for tennis in Britain, and our Environmental Sustainability Plan sets out how we will do this.
