Main duties and responsibilities
This is an exciting opportunity to manage all logistics associated with the preparation for, and delivery of, the new international Women in Sport High Performance pathway (WISH). This pathway will develop the leadership competencies of elite women coaches from all over the world representing a range of sports and will be delivered via residential (at the University of Hertfordshire) and online sessions from 2022-2025. The post also offers additional opportunities to support the development and delivery of other activities related to women and sport at the University of Hertfordshire, which has been designated as the research lead institution for when the UK hosts the Secretariat of the International Working Group (IWG) on Women and Sport from 2022-2026.
There is the potential for appropriately qualified candidates to pursue a funded PhD once in post. Please indicate your interest on your application and this can be discussed further at interview.
Skill and experience required
You will have demonstrable knowledge of women and sport leadership, and proven experience of working with international sport organisations and employees.
You have the ability to organise complex events which are both residential and online involving multiple stakeholders within data protection, ethical and risk guidelines. In so doing, you will be able to show initiative, working independently and flexibly within a team sometimes under pressure and with tight deadlines.
You will be able to handle budgets, manage websites and social media, and deliver written reports.
You will hold at a minimum of a good honour’s degree or equivalent level qualification in a relevant discipline or proven experience. A relevant postgraduate qualification would be desirable.

We recognise that the field is not ‘level’ and want to actively address barriers to progression. Markers of success to date include no gender pay gap within the School where this post sits and holding an Athena Swan Bronze Award. We also challenge stereotypes and partner with networks both within and outside of the University to enhance inclusion in the workplace. We wholeheartedly encourage applications from BAME and LGTBQ candidates, who are currently under-represented within the School.
We offer a range of employee benefits including generous annual leave, flexible location opportunities within the UK, discounted Sports Village memberships, personal and professional development and family-friendly policies. #GoHerts
