Administration Officer

Together an Active Future (TaAF) is one of 12 Sport England Place Partners, testing out new ideas and approaches that can help more people to be more active.

As part of this, we’re excited to be able to recruit a Let Me Move Administration Officer to join TaAF on a shared role (a model we use where people remain employed by their current employer and work for a funded and agreed amount of time (to be discussed and confirmed) as part of the TaAF team).

Supported and developed by highly skilled and experienced Leads, you’ll have excellent administration, relationship building and organisational skills, becoming a key member of our team as we develop this workstream across Pennine Lancashire.

If you or someone within your organisation is interested, has the passion and skills we are looking for and whose employer would support a shared role with TaAF, we’d encourage you to apply; further details can be seen below.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please drop Andrew Whitaker or Rachael McHugh an email on [email protected] 

We’d also be happy to speak with you on 07543 021673.
