The Department of Sports Development & Recreation is a forward thinking, progressive department within the University of Bath, hosting a multi-sport environment delivering to elite athletes, staff and students of the University and the local community, offering a wide range of sports programmes and activities and with a focus on high quality service and excellence in provision.
Whilst we have a strong reputation in sport and a history of high performance in BUCS, we are keen to ensure that we remain at the leading edge of university student sport.
Applications are therefore invited for the role of Student Performance Sport Officer, a new position that has been designed to further advance the development of our student performance sport model at the University of Bath.
Working as part of an expansive and cross-department team focused on pursuing a person-centred approach to students competing and coaching in BUCS at a performance level, amongst both our Priority and Development Sports, the position fulfils an exciting and central position with a focus on three areas:
  • Performance team development
  • Performance athlete support
  • Optimisation of resources to enhance performance
We hope that this will appeal to a committed professional with an insight into, and the curiosity to explore further, the area and impact of student performance sport. We are particularly keen to hear from individuals who believe they can make a positive contribution, building upon what are robust foundations, but challenging us to think differently about what performance looks like as part of the student sport experience.
Informal enquiries about the role can be made to Chris Burling, Senior Manager - Training and Development ( or 01225 385247).
