Tyne and Wear Sport are looking for an enthusiastic and organised individual who is committed to working within a small team who are dedicated to reduce levels of inactivity in Tyne & Wear.

This post within Tyne & Wear Sport will primarily be responsible for contributing towards the successful delivery of a range of projects and programmes designed to reduce physical inactivity generally and especially within under-represented groups where participation in sport / levels of physical activity is particularly low.  A key part of your role will include having the responsibility for organising and promoting activity programmes for workplaces, particularly targeting those employees that are inactive, and supporting the organisation of all Tyne & Wear Sport events.

You will be committed to providing high levels of customer service, as the nature of our work involves working closely with a wide range of partner organisations, and to working with and supporting a team of staff committed to increasing participation.

You will have some experience of successfully organising and delivering sport/physical activity related programmes, along with excellent communication and inter-personal skills, and high levels of enthusiasm.  Ideally, you will also have a sound knowledge of the sport and/or health sectors and experience of organising projects / programmes of work.
