The Opportunity – London League Organiser

  • Managing relationships with team organisers to retain teams
  • Using our database and social media to grow the leagues & attract new players to Free Taster Sessions
  • Monitoring stock levels and processing equipment orders for venue supervisors
  • Communicating nightly task summaries with venue supervisors at leagues
  • Managing league finances and ensure all member fees are collected
  • Managing relationships with post match social venues
  • Conducting occasional site visits to conduct staff assessments

League Organisers will also get involved in other work including;

  • Assisting with online shop orders & franchisee orders on set days
  • Assisting with custom kit and other office-based admin required
  • Working at 3-6 Saturday events / tournaments throughout the year
  • Learning the game of Tag Rugby to be able to cover as a venue manager on adhoc occasions during summer and up to 3 times weekly during quieter periods of the year when levels of league administration drop off.

This position would ideally suit a recent graduate in Sports Management or a sports enthusiast looking for a change of career.

The ideal person will be/have;

  • Extremely organised and proactive with an efficient work ethic
