Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) is the National Governing body (NGB) for the sport in England, Scotland and Wales. In 2010 it began its ambitious transformation programme aimed at growing the sport and developing pathways for athletes, coaches, officials and administrators as well as developing a medal winning performance system. The London 2012 Paralympic Games showcased the sport across the world and has created an unprecedented level of interest in the game which is translating into greater participation and the creation of new clubs. GBWR is now looking to move to a regional organisation and create three Regional Development Officers who will be accountable to the National Development Director for developing and supporting the delivery of wheelchair rugby in their region.

This post is for the Regional Development Officer, South, East and London. We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual who shares our passion for providing opportunities for individuals to get involved in wheelchair rugby as players, officials, coaches and administrators.

You will have excellent communication and organisational skills and you will be comfortable with working with a wide range of partners. Above all you will want to provide great opportunities for everyone who wants to be part of our sport and you will be prepared to go that extra mile to make that happen.
