Are you passionate about high performance sport? Would you like to play a key role in supporting British athletes at one of the biggest sporting events in the world?
We are the British Paralympic Association, or the BPA. As the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for Great Britain, it is our responsibility to select, prepare, enter, fund and manage the ParalympicsGB at the Paralympic Games.

With the Tokyo 2020 Games coming up, there could not be a more exciting time to join us!
We are looking for an individual who wishes to start their career in high performance sport. Your meticulous attention to detail and strong administration skills will help deliver multiple projects across areas as diverse as Safeguarding, Anti-Doping, Athlete Education, and pre-Games Preparation camps.

This will be a busy and varied role and represents a really good chance to experience a unique environment as the BPA gears up for the final preparations to deliver an optimal environment at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. The environment is very positive and fun as you would expect in a sporting organisation, but we work hard.
