Table Tennis Australia is seeking to employ a State Development Officer to work in conjunction with the National Development Coordinator, to actively grow participation in the sport of table tennis in South Australia. This position will work in conjunction with Table Tennis Australia, the State Association and other State Development Officers in the States and Territories to provide a robust support network for clubs and associations to allow growth and achievement of the sports objectives.
A background in sport is essential, with the communication and negotiation skills required to build relationships and elicit cooperation from a diverse range of key stakeholders (internal and external), creating win/win outcomes. Experience in working with sporting clubs and empathy for volunteers is required.
This is a rare opportunity to be part of a development network to build the capacity of clubs and drive participation growth across Australia. A background in table tennis is not necessary; however an understanding of the relationship between clubs, coaches and school networks would be looked upon favorably.
