The foundation of any successful organisation starts with efficient and effective administrative support and we hope the successful candidate will enjoy the opportunity of embracing the philosophy of our Youth Academy, including the Elite Player Performance Plan,  and I’m sure will relish the challenge that this role presents.

The Academy Administrator will contribute to the efficient management of the day to day running of the Academy by offering support mechanisms to the relevant phase development managers and coaches.

This will mostly include managing the administration requirements of our young players in all phases, control the finance of our player development centres, attend and produce minutes of meetings, and liaise with all personnel necessary to confirm fixtures for all teams that we manage.
