Our client is a governing body for an Olympic sport. They aim to promote and develop their sport in the UK, with training at the very heart of everything that they do to continually improve their sport. As a result, an exciting new opportunity has arisen to join the head office team as Training and Education Officer.
They are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic person with excellent administrative and customer service skills to join them, working to develop and support training for officials, as well as helping to manage their key events. This will be a full time role based at their offices in Meriden, West Midlands.
Reporting to the Training and Education Manager, you will have an integral role in the delivery of our clients national training and the development and testing system for officials. As such, knowledge of qualifications and training would be advantageous. You’ll also play an important part in the organisation of our clients major national training events, such as the Judges Convention and Principles Seminar and a range of other national training initiatives. To effectively deliver our clients training events, experience of events management is essential.
This is a busy and varied role where good communication, interpersonal and organisation skills are essential, along with a proactive ‘can do’ attitude. The successful candidate will work across several projects simultaneously, so the ability to multi-task while taking a diligent, structured approach is also fundamental.
You will be expected to build strong relationships with officials, volunteers and colleagues within the organisation.
Due to the nature of our sport a flexible approach to working is required, including some attendance at events during weekends and evenings.
