About Engagement Co-ordinator

Intelligent Health Ltd is dedicated to improving the health of communities around the world. We believe a healthy community needs all stakeholders working together to make a difference. That means people, organisations and leaders. Intelligent Health values are; Honest, Passionate about Health, Reliable, Kind and Proactive.

Beat the Street is Intelligent Health's Flagship programme which engages whole communities and gets them moving, through a six week intervention. The game uses RFID technology where players earn points by hovering RFID cards against physical Boxes placed on lamp posts throughout the town or playing area. Beat the Street programmes have been successful both within the UK and across Europe, commissioned by our programme funders, who in the past have included local ities, NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups and charity partners. The schemes have been very successful, reaching over one million people to date and demonstrating long term behaviour change. In light of the coronavirus pandemic. The Beat the Street programme has been adapted to be fully compliant with Covid-19 guidelines.

Role Summary

Funded by Sport England and Derby City Council, we aim to deliver a successful game engaging with thousands of people across the area. Beat the Street is divided into 3 phases; Anticipation, Experience (the 6-week game) and Sustain. In anticipation phase the Engagement Coordinator will work with key local stakeholders to build the profile of Beat the Street in Derby and recruit teams from schools and community groups. Working within the Covid-19 guidelines in place at the time of delivery, this could involve attending community events, delivering assemblies (virtual or in person), leading occasional walks and championing physical activity to get schools and community groups involved in the initiative. The Engagement Coordinator will also need to work with local voluntary groups, clubs and businesses to get teams signed up and generally raise awareness of the scheme.

Throughout the live phase of the game, the Engagement Coordinator will deliver campaigns, events and competitions to help motivate players, boost participation and recruit new players.

During sustain phase, the Engagement Coordinator should have sourced opportunities for players to remain active in their local area, linking with local partners and promoting these through regular newsletters and online platforms. During this time, feedback sessions with community groups and schools should take place to help us evaluate and inform future programmes and interventions.
