WANTED - Experienced Team Manager

Are you an experienced Team Manager wanting to help us train more within the London Region?

We are looking to increase the amount of presenters we have to deliver our Team Manager workshops across the region and are therefore looking for experienced Team Managers who would be interested in a voluntary role helping to get more club volunteers upskilled to become Team Managers. The ASA would provide adequate training to enable you to fulfil the role and the number of workshops delivered would be purely dependant on the demand from our clubs – on average we tend to run about 10 per year but across all four counties included in the region. The aim is to have 4 presenters available across London, ideally one in each County so we are particularly interested in finding someone within Essex and Surrey, but not limited to if we have the right person who may be willing to travel with expenses paid.
