You will work collaboratively in this cross-departmental, cross-campus role to enable students to be all that they can be, through physical activity and participation.

You will support a network of Active Ambassadors and a programme of sport and activity available to all students across all Campuses that will engage all students, although the focus will be on inactive students.
