The following article written by Claire Shapland for the AFL England website details the changes occurring within the structure of the GB [Great Britain] Bulldogs team. With an exciting future coming over the next few seasons, opportunities exist for positions that are either vacant or advertised.
Anybody interested, either in Europe or even from Australia, who may wish to take on these roles, can contact AFL England on the contacts at the end of this story. This would be an exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of the game in England and across Great Britain.
With the departure of Mark Pitura, GB Bulldogs are seeking a new Head Coach alongside various other voluntary positions on the organising committee.
With the expansion of the Women’s game in the UK, a ladies team at the International Cup 2017 is a very real possibility so the Bulldogs Management team needs to be expanded and strengthened. The following positions are out to application:
Assistant Team Manager
Partnerships Manager (Sponsorship/Fundraising)
Marketing & Media Officer
The next major test for the GB Bulldogs will be the European Cup 2016 (Croatia) followed by the International Cup 2017 (Melbourne), however it is highly likely there will be International friendlies organised. As a non-funded sport currently, players must fund their participation in these major tournaments so for the first time we are seeking a dedicated Partnerships Manager to work to find sponsorship and explore additional fundraising opportunities. With the development of digital media we are also seeking a Marketing & Media Officer to work with the AFL England Media Coordinator/website manager and keep our digital media channels updated with relevant and interesting content.
To express your interest in one of the above roles or to gain further information please contact Adam Bennett (Team Manager) on: email@example.com
