Wed 7th March, 2018
5:00pm - Wed 4th April, 2018
Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) is looking to recruit 3 Voluntary Undergraduates, currently studying for a degree, for a 6 - 12 month volunteer placement opportunity from September 2018.

Closing date extended to 5.00pm Wednesday 4th April 2018.

  1. Sports Development Assistant (School Sport)
  2. Sports Development Assistant (Community Sport)
  3. Innovation & Enterprise Assistant

We are looking for 3 self-motivated individuals to support a range of sports and physical activity development programmes at Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, including the School Games, Talented Athlete scheme and Workplace Challenge and SportSuite whilst gaining invaluable on-the-job training.

The positions will be based with Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport at SportPark, Loughborough University and the successful candidates will be expected to work a 37 hour week.

Although these positions are voluntary, expenses will be paid (travel and any work related expenses). There will also be the opportunity for the successful candidate to access CPD courses free of charge.

The positions will require candidates to be able to travel easily around their locality area and potentially across the county, so although public transport could be relied upon, access to and use of a car would be preferable.

The closing date for applications is the 25th March 2018, with interviews expected to be held during the Easter holidays at SportPark, Loughborough University. Please inform us of any dates you are not available during the Easter period. The start date for the positions is negotiable.

To apply for these positions, please submit a current CV and complete the online application form setting out the relevant skills and experiences that present you as a strong candidate for these positions. Please refer to the job description and person specification when producing your statement.
