TASS is seeking to recruit an Administrator who will be responsible for the organisation’s day-to-day adminstration function as well as supporting and assisting in many aspects of its work.

These responsibilities include managing general enquiries, development of office administrative systems, maintaining confidential and accurate records and providing logistics and planning support for TASS activities or events. The Scheme operates with a relatively small team, and involvement in other activities is anticipated from time to time.

TASS is a national support scheme for talented athletes in full-time education, with the mission to help athletes fulfil their potential in both their sport and studies without having to choose between the two.

At the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, 165 athletes who represented Great Britain had been previously supported by the Scheme, with TASS alumni bringing a return of 78 medals.

Meanwhile, there are 25 former TASS recipients set to compete in PyeongChang at the Winter Olympic Games, including triple world champion Elise Christie and Olympic gold medallist Lizzy Yarnold.
