SportsAid is a national charity that recognises and helps the next generation of Britain’s sporting talent, often at a critical time in their development. We are looking to appoint a national awards manager to lead and develop the charity’s work with the national governing bodies of sport (NGBs) and their talent identification structures. The role requires a passion for sport, a good understanding of the sporting sector, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build relationships.

- Working with SportsAid’s funding partners, including the commercial sector

You should be educated to degree level (or recognised equivalent), have experience of developing and maintaining partnerships, and possess a good understanding of talent identification and/or grant award management. A sound working-knowledge of database management and Excel is essential, as are good project management skills. This is a rare opportunity to join a committed and driven team.

The salary is in the range of £28,000 to £30,000 p.a. for the right candidate and opportunities for flexible working are available. You can download the full job description here.
