Are you looking for a new challenge in an organisation focused on improving people’s lives? Sport England’s vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or level of ability, should feel able to engage in sport and physical activity. Some will be young, fit and talented but most will not. We want everyone to feel welcome, to find something in sport and activity that will benefit them now and in the future.
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and super organised person on a 12 month fixed term contract to be part of our small team of Business Support Officers located in Loughborough who provide high quality administrative and transactional support to Sport England’s Investment Management Team. We have about 50 people in the Investment Management Team, located in our London and Loughborough offices or homebased across the country, who need an efficient and effective support to ensure we deliver an excellent customer service to our internal and external stakeholders.
Sport England is responsible for developing grass roots sport and activity, investing treasury and National Lottery Funding to develop great ideas. The Investment Management Team provides expert advice and guidance to influence key decision makers from across the business, working to ensure Investment programmes operate effectively. This includes adherence to Sport England investment policies, utilising resources efficiently delivering maximum outcomes from investments, and whilst delivering an excellent customer service. The team provides advice to all potential applicants to our funding programmes, undertakes the assessments of bids and supports funded projects to deliver their outcomes.
You will have proven organisational skills in the business environment, great attention to detail and able to work flexibly to prioritise deadlines.
You should enjoy working as part of a team, able to develop strong relationships and demonstrate a conscientious ‘can-do’ attitude whilst juggling a range of time critical tasks. The customer is at the heart of all we do; whilst experience of working in sport and activity is not essential, a passion for making a difference is.
Sport England actively promotes diversity in employment and sport and welcomes applications from all parts of the community.
