Details: The Sport and Recreation team are seeking an organised and experienced person to undertake the role of Senior Project Officer on a temporary basis. This role sits within the Community Participation team that is responsible for supporting a range of participation initiatives within the sector, including getting kids active through nature based play, funding programs, education and training and combat sport safety. The role will work closely with existing sport and recreation partners, understanding their needs and supporting their sustained growth. While administration and process form part of the role, creative thinking is also required to consider new opportunities that may support our aim to get more people moving through sport and recreation.
