support Scotland’s Badminton community by becoming an essential player within our Team.

Day to day you will:

  • Assist Badminton Scotland’s Head of Finance and wider team with administrative tasks relating to departmental objectives and tasks.

  • The core hours of the position are 21 per week, with possibly some additional requirements at peak times or during the Major Events. Mainly Monday to Friday with possibly some weekend and evening work, although there is flexibility to adjust hours to suit.
  • Badminton Scotland offer a blended working environment, meaning that although the role is office based there is the opportunity to work from home for part of/or all of the week. The schedule of office/home working will be agreed with the Head of Finance and Head of Engagement.
  • Badminton Scotland will provide the employee with a laptop and Office365 licence pre-installed (for the duration of the programme). It is expected that the employee will have access to reliable stable internet to allow working from home.
  • The role holder will receive 1 to 1 support and mentorship on balancing flexible hours and work-life balance.

    sensitive information
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Office 365 applications (full training will be
    provided for each process)
  • Time management and attention to detail is essential
  • Good verbal and communication skills
  • A knowledge of Badminton would be helpful for this role, but is not essential
