Sport activators

Sport activators team photo

Sport Activators are students at ARU who have an interest in sport. Our activators engage other students and motivate them to be more active.

We know that sustained activity has a positive impact on physical and mental wellbeing, both now and in the future – so our activators have a really valuable role.

Activators do not need to be part of a sports club, nor do they need to be particularly talented at sport, they just need to be committed and interested in sport. As part of our Campus Sport programme, sport activators promote, plan and deliver safe, fun, engaging and inclusive activities. They are based in Cambridge and Chelmsford, and have a genuine desire to make a true difference to students at ARU.

We are always looking to recruit enthusiastic and motivated students who would relish the opportunity to be a sport activators.

To view the details of the role please read the Sport Activator job description.

If you would like to apply please email your CV and cover letter to TeamARU@aru.ac.uk
