About working at Essex Sport
Staff working at Essex Sport are passionate about sport, physical activity, and fitness. We know how leading an active lifestyle can have a positive impact on people’s lives, and we’re committed to encouraging and enabling everyone to access those benefits. Engaging in sport and exercise can also have very significant benefits for university students, with a range of evidence indicating that those that do so are happier, have greater belief in their ability to succeed in their academic studies, and go on to be more successful in their subsequent careers. As such sport is an essential component of the transformational education delivered at the University of Essex.
With 6,000 members, over 100 fitness classes per week, around 45 student sports clubs, and a wide range activities, courses and holiday camps, Essex Sport is always an exciting and interesting place to work. The 1655-seat, £12M Essex Sport Arena opened in 2018 and has been host to a wide variety of high-profile sporting events including our own ‘Essex Rebels’ professional basketball teams, as well as training camps for national teams.
As we look forward to the start of the next academic year, we have a number of opportunities to join our friendly and dedicated staff team. You can find out more details about each job, and how to apply by clicking on the links below:
