Say Goodbye to Marc Scott, Our Safeguarding Adults in Sport Manager

Marc Scott Safeguarding Adults in Sports Manager

We’re sorry to announce that Marc Scott, our brilliant Safeguarding Adults in Sport Manager, will leave us next month.

Marc’s worked in the sports development sector for over 10 years. He started at a local authority as the community development officer before moving to Boccia England.

At Boccia England, Marc was the Development Manager and Lead Safeguarding Officer. He was responsible for the strategic lead for the development of clubs and increasing participation and overall responsibility for implementing and embedding safeguarding throughout boccia in England.

Marc joined us in early 2018. He’s now got the opportunity to work for England Netball and British Triathlon as their Compliance Manager.

An Exciting Time

Marc had this to say about his time at ACT:

Over the past year working for ACT I was able to greatly expand my knowledge on Safeguarding Adults.

It’s an exciting time for ACT and Safeguarding Adults in Sport. Momentum is really starting to build. I know the team will be very busy over the next couple of years delivering the objectives set out in our Sport England funding application. They’ll continue to support the organisations ACT works with to fully understand and embed the area of safeguarding adults.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at ACT. I wish the team and organisation all the best in the future. I’m sure we’ll keep in touch, so I look forward to continuing to work closely with them.

Big Shoes to Fill

We’re sad to see Marc go. But we wish him all the best in his new role.

So we’re now looking for a new Safeguarding Adults in Sport Manager.

This is an opportunity to influence future planning and delivery of safeguarding advice and support to the sport and recreation sector.

You’ll be responsible for reviewing and developing services in relation to adults at risk in sport. You’ll identify, plan, and implement new initiatives in line with current practice. You will develop and deliver a training strategy and offer advice and information to sport and recreation organisations. You’ll also represent the sector at key consultations nationally.
