UKU Event TD Positions Available - Apply Now!

Have you ever wanted to be part of the UKU Events Team? Running tournaments on the day and making sure everything runs smoothly?

Here at UKU we are now looking to build a bigger team of TDs who can assist us at some of our larger events (those like Tour and Nationals) and possibly run some of our smaller ones (such as our indoor tournaments). It would be an ad hoc role, where you would only work at the tournaments you’re available for/required and you’d be paid for your time and assistance (dependent on size of role). Obviously, the more tournaments you work for us, the more likely that you’ll be given greater responsibility and the opportunity to TD larger events!

Benji Heywood - Full-time Director of Ultimate at University of St Andrews

It is with mixed feelings that I would like to announce (a little late) that Benji recently left his role with UK Ultimate to become full-time Director of Ultimate at St Andrews.  I have mixed feelings because we really didn’t want to lose him from our team, but do want to celebrate the amazing milestone that he has a full-time position coaching ultimate at a UK university.  

In general questions about UKU events should now be sent to Meg Price: events@ukultimate.com.
