We’re looking for an Operations Assistant to join the parkrun team in the Gold Coast office.
From quiet beginnings, parkrun has grown into a worldwide social movement with the community at its beating heart.
Committed to breaking down barriers to participation in regular physical activity and bringing communities together, we deliver free, weekly timed events that people of all ages and backgrounds can participate in – as walkers, runners, volunteers and spectators.
Now in our 15th year, parkrun is delivered in nearly 1,700 locations in 20 countries with 415,000 different people having volunteered. We have recorded over 40 million walk, jog and run performances so far with 3.3 million different people having completed a parkrun.
By 2024 parkrun will be a truly global community of 22 million members, with 1.1 million weekly runners/walkers and 100,000 weekly volunteers across 8,000 global events.
Our challenge is to continue to thrive and expand in a sustainable manner, making the most of the opportunities offered to us across the world.
And we have really only just begun.
Are you a confident self-starter who makes things happen?
