John Wilford (Sport and Health Manager)
John is the University’s Sport and Health Manager. He is responsible for the management of the Sports Medicine Clinic along with the Sport and Physical Activity team (the team responsible for B:Active, Game Changers, Healthy Minds, Bristol moves+). Working closely with Scott Hammond from the Business Development team, John oversees the administration of the clinic and the financial and personnel management of the service.
With over 20 years' working in sport, John has extensive experience of sport and health development and the management of teams, programmes and projects. He has worked at the University in several roles over the last decade or so and can now more often be found in meetings or fighting with spreadsheets. He does still manage to have more hands-on sporting involvement outside of work as a volunteer coach, as well as volunteering as a mentor for sport for development charity Sported.
