7 Bamboos RFC is facing a great new challenge of touring with two teams for the first time this year.
Following four years of building and running a successful men’s squad, 7 Bamboos RFC has launched an additional women’s team this summer, operated in partnership with Old Bristolians RFC. In order to fulfil their high expectations and provide the best possible environment for all team members, they aim to boost their team management board this summer with a team manager for each side.
As the team manager you’ll work on a regular basis with the men’s and women’s rugby sevens teams. The role applies mostly for attending the tournament weekends (between May-July) as well as some of the weekly training sessions (depending on your availability) and is a great chance to gain first-hand experience of the exciting environment of modern sports teams. All tournaments are located around the South-West region.
The training location for the men’s team is at Hartpury College and the women’s team will train at Old Bristolians RFC.
The primary responsibilities of a Team Manager will be:
- Creating tournament previews on the official website each Friday before a tournament.
- Ensuring all team members are accurately briefed about upcoming tournaments and receive/return kit.
- Supporting the events team in the set up/dismantling of events equipment.
- Take notes during the games.
- Post regular updates on Social Media throughout the day.
What are they looking for?
The successful volunteer will have excellent communication and organisational skills, in addition to being extremely reliable. A positive attitude towards new people and environments is key, and experience in working with a rugby team and using photography/filming equipment would be excellent assets.
Volunteer expenses will be fully covered, including transport, food and drink on the day, and free kit.
When: Variable times
Age requirements: All ages
