Time commitment is varied from week to week. The expectation is that this role could take up to 10-15 hours each month for the few first months as we get the role embedded and then less as the role settles. The club runs year-round football but predominately assistance is required during March - Sept during the winter football season.
Whilst most of the work can be completed at home there will be a requirement to attend fundraising events, football games and meetings when required.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
