Your days will consist of managing, organising and coordinating a variety of projects ranging from organising the British Sailing Teamís attendance at international and domestic competitions and training camps, to updating information on our website, processing and coding invoices. Reporting to the RYA Podium Potential Manager you will work alongside one other Senior Administrator, in an administration team lead by the RYA Olympic Operations Officer, who in conjunction with Coaches and Support Staff form a cohesive team of outstanding individuals.
Computer proficiency and literacy is essential; we love an excel spreadsheet! You also need to be a good verbal and written communicator. We need someone who is not afraid to talk or listen and has the ability to prioritise their work load and work under pressure. Daily interaction with Sailors, Coaches, Support Staff, sailing venues and travel companies, both in the UK and abroad, means that this job is never dull and no two days are the same.
