UKU hiring Events Coordinator

UK Ultimate is creating a full-time position to further support the planning and organisation of UKU events.  The position will report to the CEO (Si Hill), working alongside our first Events Coordinator (Benji Heywood).

During the last 3-4 years, we centralised the running of most UKU events.  We set out to achieve the following goals:

  1. Increased control over the quality and cost of service that is offered to ultimate players attending UKU-owned events.
  2. Event-profits are re-invested in the development of the sport.  
  3. Simplify the task of being the “local organiser” for UKU events, and therefore hopefully encourage more individuals and in particular clubs to get involved at that level.
  4. Other UKU staff will also be able to take the role of local organiser without significant impact on their other activities and objectives.

This initiative has been largely successful to the point where we find ourselves needing to increase the team to keep up with the workload and build on additional opportunities that we see.  In addition to improving the delivery of the existing events calendar, we aim to provide more support to local events/competitions and introduce additional competitions and divisions, e.g. supporting school competitions, adding new masters division events.

Please see more details here including the application process.
