Overseas Sports Development Adviser – Kiribati
Volunteer Service Abroad (VSA) volunteers receive a living allowance and accommodation, insurance, and medical costs are provided. Travel arrangements are organised and funded by VSA along with other costs.
Sport Development is a new concept in Kiribati and is increasingly being recognised as an important pillar of national development with positive impacts on youth, and more widely in the community. In this assignment you will play a key role in education and raising awareness of the long-term health and physical benefits of active participation in sport.
You’ll work alongside Ministry of Youth, Women, Sport & Social Affairs (MYWSA) staff to review the National Sports Plan and help them to collaborate more effectively with stakeholders including schools, community organisations and the Ministry of Education. You will also help identify opportunities for sponsorship and marketing for sport and athletes in Kiribati.
A number of sporting organisations already exist including weightlifting, basketball and tennis. This assignment is a unique opportunity to help unify these organisations and build a strong sporting infrastructure across Kiribati.
We are looking for a volunteer with:
– Degree in sports science, development, management, leisure and recreation, physical education or another relevant field
– Demonstrated experience in sports development at government or community level or at a reputable sports agency
– Strong knowledge of active recreation and the sport sector
– Ability to forge strong relationships with partners and stakeholders
– Experience in strategic planning and project management
This is a one-year assignment based in Kiribati.
