Team Managers needed for England’s summer campaigns

England’s national teams are taking on the best of Europe this summer, and you can help contribute to any success we have by helping our campaigns run as smoothly as possible.

We are seeking Team Managers for the European Touch Championships in Nottingham between August 2nd and 6th, and the Junior Touch Championships in Vichy, France, between August 12th and 14th.

England’s successes at the 2018 Euros, 2019 World Cup and 2019 Junior Touch Championships was helped no end by the hard work and dedication of the Team Managers, and your contributions will be invaluable as we seek to retain our titles.

We are seeking Team Managers for the Women's 27 and Girls 18 teams, but are also looking to build a reserve list of Managers should anyone have to drop out at late notice.

The scope of this role includes:

  • Support the Head Coach to ensure wellbeing (physical, emotional, psychological) of athletes in their care
  • Where required be the communication between athletes and England Touch to support with the collection of information
  • Be the lead on all team operational matters
  • Work with England Touch to chase and track athletes’ personal payments
  • Be the primary point of contact for the team on operational and management aspects
  • Support coaching staff to deliver their objectives (including team building exercises) off or on pitch

The role is voluntary. Tournament accommodation is provided free of charge, plus a fixed sum tournament travel allowance and kit allowance. Part of the #OneEngland Rewards and Recognition scheme

In addition to the above, we are also seeking to futureproof upcoming international tournaments by increasing the number of people who are willing and able to be Tour Managers, helping to organise and co-ordinate the overall campaign. This is a crucial role, and having the European Touch Championships in Nottingham offers the opportunity for individuals to shadow the Tour Manager for an insight into what is needed.
