– Recruit coaches to each of the Mancunians teams in partnership with the club’s Marketing Manager

What we can offer:
– An induction into a dynamic, progressive sports club which is growing at a rapid pace

This is a part-time, voluntary role and would typically take up around 3-4 hours or your time per week.
