About Executive Assistant (Home Based)

Our Mission: About Sport Works
It is an exciting time to join Sport Works, one of the fastest growing organisations in the UK sport/education sectors as we continue to identify new markets and partners. By April 2023 Sport Works will have more than doubled the number of people we support each year and becoming the number one provider of sport and education programmes in the UK – a challenging and ambitious target, but one we are confident of meeting.
Currently operating from ten sites across the country, we use sport as the engagement tool to enhance the lives of people and communities throughout the country. Our award winning programmes improve both health and educational standards whilst supporting people into employment.

Why the Role Exists
The Executive Assistant position is key to ensuring Sport Works meets its challenging growth targets. The post holder will provide administrative support to the Directors and Senior Management Team who manage our projects throughout the country.
We're looking for someone who is comfortable working in a fast paced environment across multiple departments. The role will be diverse and likely that no two days will be the same! This means the post holder will need to be comfortable working, in particular, across the following areas:

  • marketing (including social media)
  • sales (liaising directly with customers)
  • reporting (assessing information and creating written and verbal reports)
  • project management (supporting staff to deliver nationwide projects on time and in budget)

The post holder will need to be a quick learner and be able to quickly get up to speed with the Sport Works model, be comfortable working quickly under pressure and be able to manage/prioritise several projects concurrently.
As our organization grows there maybe potential for the post holder to grow and develop with us as our staff team expands.
