You will report to the Senior Project Manager, and will be responsible for supporting the event project delivery of the 2019 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, by providing project coordination support, assisting in the development and tracking of project timelines, the project budget and its deliverables.
Your role will focus primarily on the development and implementation of our workforce plans – including casual staff and volunteer recruitment / management. You will utilise a proven track record in events management and specifically some people and volunteer coordination experience in an event context. Emails are important but you see the advantage in picking up the phone and utilising verbal communication to make the all-important personal connection. We expect you to embrace the opportunity to speak with people, engage them and ensure that we service their requirements.
Sport Projects (SP) is a sport and event management project delivery and consultancy business which has been operating since May 2015.
Still a relatively new entity in the busy events industry, SP has quickly established itself, with a speciality in road events and projects requiring an expertise in complex logistical planning and stakeholder management. The focus for this role is on a high profile, major road event, the 2019 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (CEGORR) in January.
A contract period is designed around servicing the requirements for this significant, already iconic event (July 2018 - mid February 2019)
