Senior project officer

My role within Tyne & Wear Sport is to primarily oversee the financial systems and procedures to ensure timely payments to our partners, as well as supporting the organisation with office administration. I also undertake a lot of work on Book IT! - our online course booking and payment system. I am involved in undertaking research and producing insight reports for our partners who request information, by using a number of different online tools and data sources.

I am involved with the Active Workplace programme; a bespoke in-house programme with an offer to local organisations to encourage their staff to become more physically active. Alongside my colleagues, I am responsible for overseeing the success of our Workplace Inactivity Fund by closely liaising with partners who apply for funding.

Over 2019, I will be covering certain aspects of work relating to club development, including supporting local sports clubs and organisations with Sport England Club Matters initiative.

Before I started working at Tyne & Wear Sport, I worked in the NHS for over three years as an administrator in the training and education department. I was an acrobatic gymnast from the age of 5 until 12; however I’ve now been running middle distance for a local harriers club for almost 13 years.
