Our Community programmes aim to deliver huge benefits to the local community by using the unique ability of rugby to address a broad range of issues. Utilising the rugby club, its brand, professional players and the stadium, we deliver projects that give all young people involved the opportunity to fulfill their potential and to play a positive and active role in society.
Adding to our community portfolio we are now seeking a person to lead the Hitz project. We are looking for an individual who has the ability to plan, deliver and evaluate high quality rugby and educational activities. Someone who can combine a passion for rugby and sport with strong organisational, communication and administrative skills.
The award winning HITZ programme tackles some of the greatest challenges facing young people today - unemployment, crime and disillusionment.
Delivered nationally by Premiership Rugby and funded by national partners Barclays, Comic Relief, Land Rover and Wooden Spoon, HITZ uses rugby to increase young people's resilience, self-reliance and confidence. It gives them the skills to get back into education, vocational training, apprenticeships and employment.
To apply please send a CV and covering letter to: Gary Little, Community Manager, Gloucester Rugby, Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester, GL1 3AX. Closing date Friday 7th February. For more information click to download the Job Description or visit hitzrugby.com
