We are looking for a diligent and versatile individual to fulfil a varied role in a small team that is dedicated to reducing levels of inactivity in Tyne & Wear.

A key part of your role will include the responsibility for organising and promoting these activities and the work of Tyne & Wear Sport in general, as well as that of our key partners.
