Connacht Rugby would like to invite expressions of interest for the role of Team Manager with our age grade squads and regional talent squads.
We currently operate four regional squads, which are made up of the most talented u15 and u16 year olds in our Club and School games. These are located in various venues throughout the province. In addition there are Connacht age grade squads at U16, U17, U18 and U19, who have fixtures against the other provinces along with touring teams. This pathway has been a formative part of the development of many of our Connacht and Ireland professionals and it is very rewarding to be a mentor in the early part of their career.
The Team Manager is a volunteer position, and it is a key role in assisting with all the logistics required around training and fixtures. It would be anticipated that you would be available for the regional sessions (Monday evenings) and occasional matches, which may include travel to other provinces.
Full training will be provided and successful candidates will have to complete our Garda Vetting process.
To Register your interest please complete the link below.
We look forward to hearing from you:
