Program Administrator, Australian Sports Partnerships Program

ASPP is seeking applications from a suitably experienced Program Administrator to be based in Canberra. Deadline 14 February 2020.

GHD's International Development Assistance (IDA) Team delivers project management and technical services for the world's largest development organisations to improve the lives of people in developing countries. Privately owned by our people, GHD is one of the world’s leading engineering professional services companies. Our global network of over 10,000 people operates in the water, energy and resources, property and buildings, environment, and transportation markets.

The Australian Sports Partnerships Program (ASPP) is a 10-year initiative to be delivered in six Pacific island countries and up to four Asian countries. Globally, sport is a way people convene, gain status, create norms and celebrate culture. But access to sport is unequal. Women, girls and people with disabilities face barriers or are systematically excluded from participation, coaching, officiating, administrating and governing sport. Sport for development programming such as the ASPP offers an opportunity to address the ‘play gap’ that exists in mainstream sport through carefully designed and targeted activities that can level the playing field. GHD has been engaged to provide the management, coordination and technical services required to design, implement and manage ASPP.

ASPP is seeking applications from a suitably experienced Program Administrator to undertake a fulltime fixed term contract position until 31 August 2022, based in Canberra. You will be responsible for supporting the team with administrative and financial tasks key to program delivery including:
