Vacancies

Here you can find the latest job vacancies with GBWR and the wider wheelchair rugby community.

GBWR is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications from all suitably qualified/experienced people regardless of race, religion/belief, gender, gender reassignment, disability, sexual orientation, age, marital/civil partnership status, or pregnancy/maternity.

  • Chair of GBWR

    Our current chair, Kevin Aitchison, will be stepping down post the Tokyo Paralympics and, with early succession planning being a key part of the GBWR strategy, we are looking to recruit a ‘chair designate’ who will work in tandem with Kevin from appointment until becoming chair in September 2020.

    This is a particularly exciting time for the sport. At the elite level wheelchair rugby, aka ‘murder ball’ was of one of the biggest hits of the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Since Rio, the GB team has been on an upward trajectory, is now ranked fourth in the world, and is well placed to challenge for our first Paralympic medal at the Tokyo Games.

    At grassroots, the sport is thriving, with not only a growing number of clubs and members, but also with new disciplines now established offering the sport to a wider range of disability groups.

    Candidates should have a passion for sport with an awareness of the social impact that sport plays in our communities.

    Closing date

    The closing date for applications is Wednesday 6th November 2019.
