SportsAid is a national charity that recognises and helps Britain’s young sports people, often at a critical time in their development, with a mission to encourage, enable and empower the next generation of athletes to achieve their ambitions in sport and life.
The Athlete Liaison Officer role is central to delivering the charity’s mission. You will support athletes and families to make the most of the help and opportunities available through SportsAid.
In particular, you will be responsible for regular communication with supported athletes, including seeking updates on their performances and progress; gathering insightful data; organising and briefing athletes to attend various SportsAid events; ensuring good safeguarding principles are followed; and making sure that the charity is connected and listens to its beneficiaries.
This exciting role is based in central London and occasional travel around the country may be necessary. You will report directly to the National Awards Manager.
You will have experience of working with young people, a passion for sport, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build positive relationships. You will have the enthusiasm and temperament to work in a small team in a fast-paced environment and will be a self-starter who is reliable, committed, organised and motivated. You will have excellent organisational and presentation skills and will be an effective communicator.

SportsAid recognises that certain sections of the community have been affected by structural inequities and may be denied the opportunity to participate equally and fully in sport at all levels. SportsAid as an organisation believes our role is to remove the barriers that our most under-served, at risk and minoritised groups of young people experience when trying to access sport and physical activities.
SportsAid therefore positively welcomes, and seeks to achieve, diversity in our workforce and that all job applicants, volunteers and employees receive equal and fair treatment. We positively encourage applications from all candidates regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, disability, marriage and civil partnership status, gender identity, background, religion, faith, sexual orientation, maternity status, pregnancy, belief or nationality.
