Part -Time Administrator for the Pitch Advisory Service Programme

Job Details

The Grounds Management Association (GMA) is seeking to recruit for the newly created role of Part -Time Administrator for the Pitch Advisory Service Programme (formerly the Grounds and Natural Turf Improvement Programme – GaNTIP).

The programme is designed to raise standards of sports surfaces and the understanding of sports turf management practices at volunteer level. This role will provide administrative support to the Pitch Advisory Service (PAS) and Grounds Management Association (GMA) to deliver the GMA Pitch Grading Framework (PGF) and any associated programmes and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). It will also provide finance and office support and general administration to the GMA and assist any departments and consultants that interlink with any GMA products and services.

The successful candidate should have:

  • Excellent interpersonal, communication and IT skills.
