  • Contribute to the development of key student-facing, community and internal resources.
  • Assist with the implementation of a range of marketing and promotion strategies.
  • Collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, including students and university associates
  • Undertake other activities which the incumbent might reasonably be expected to do, and which are consistent with the accountabilities and responsibilities as listed above.

  • Ability to work outside of normal office hours when required
  • Experience and/or background in a sport and recreation facility. Experience working within a tertiary education setting is advantageous.
