When we need you:
Royal Leamington Spa
Kids Marathon Project Manager
This is an exciting opportunity to gain experience in a project manager role. Kids Run Free, a Leamington based children’s charity, are currently looking for a project manager to take on the responsibility of launching and managing their new Kids Marathon scheme.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and hard-working individual who would like to join our team of volunteers in their aim of encouraging children to take up sport and enjoy exercise through our fun and rewarding Kids Marathon scheme.
The Kids Marathon involves children running a whole marathon during the course of the school year. Each week they will be given a chance to do a number of laps of the school track, gradually clocking up the miles, with the aim of completing the distance of a marathon. The children are then invited to complete the last 800m of their Marathon at the Coombe Abbey Half Marathon on June 29th 2014.
You will be responsible for planning, organising and overseeing all aspects of the Kids Marathon form its initial launch right through until the last event.
The successful candidate will be expected to liaise with all 8 of the schools that are currently taking part in the Kids Marathon. You will be responsible for ensuring that each school is running it correctly and that it has everything it needs in order to do so. You will also be required to go to each school on a regular basis to double check that this is happening.
You will also be required to liaise with the Coombe Abbey Half Marathon organisers to make sure everything is in place for the kids to complete their marathon at this event in June.
· The ability to manage multiple tasks, prioritise and meet deadlines.
· Must be self-motivated as the role will involve taking your own initiative, but also being able to fit in with the established team.
· Excellent organisational, time management and communication skills.
This role will provide you with great experience in a project manager role. We will fully support you in the work you undertake whilst at our charity.
We will be happy to provide you with a reference for future employers.
