We would welcome the opportunity to discuss the issue this particular vacancy has raised with an organisation such as Interns Aware, to ensure the organisations advertising on our website are adhering to best practice guidelines.
The organisation distanced itself from the job posting and said its hosting of the advertisement did not amount to an endorsement of the role:
UK Sport provides a free service for advertising vacancies to help the sporting community find the best people for various opportunities across the UK.
The majority are salaried positions but in keeping with many other websites we do accept internships and voluntary roles as they can be important to sport, as well as those looking to progress their career in this competitive industry.
It is important to recognise these are not UK Sport roles, nor is UK Sport endorsing the advertised positions.
We gain no benefit, financial or otherwise from providing this free service which is designed to give sports organisations the opportunity to promote roles within their organisation as widely as possible.
A £2m scheme to help people aged between 18 and 24 will be launched at the 20/20 Vision business exhibition in Kent later today. The fund means up to ten percent of the county's unemployed youths could find work.
The money should enable businesses and social enterprises in Kent to take on an apprentice for as little as £60 per week, with administration taken care of too. The scheme will be unveiled by County Council leader Paul Carter.
Around 1700 Remploy jobs are to go nationwide with posts at risk in Southampton and Poole. Trade unions will oppose the closures but disability groups are in favour because they regard the sheltered factory model as outdated.
There is a warning one hundred and forty thousand jobs are at risk unless Heathrow expands. The GMB and Unite unions, supported by the Institute of Directors say tourism, exports and foreign investment will also be hit over the next decade if a third runway is not built.
