“This new post will support the plans to raise £750k for improvements to club facilities” Dave Rhodes - Chairman

Club Chairman, Dave Rhodes, confirmed at last night's AGM that the club is seeking to employ a Fund Raising Manager to support the efforts to fund the planned improvements to the club facilities that were also described in detail at the meeting.

Details of the new post are as follows:

Fund Raising Manager

Heathfield and Waldron RFC have decided on a new phase of facilities improvements to include an all weather training surface and extensions to both the changing room and bar areas. It is envisaged that this will cost in excess of £750,000 and so we are seeking to create the role of Club Secretary to assist the main committee in raising these monies and to create a sustainable income to repay any loans we need to take out.

The role will be part-time in the order of 15-20 hours per week and will exist for the next 5 years. The hours and working location are both flexible to fit around the applicant's needs. Salary will be dependent on experience and age . A good knowledge of IT skills, preferably for the Microsoft Office suite including Excel and Access, is essential as maintaining the club database is seen as an important part of this process. Candidates must have good communication skills to assist in attraction of new sponsors into the club and the continuing participation of existing sponsors. The candidate will also run the Heathfield Show parking and stewarding teams, which the club has provided for many years. He/she will also be expected to take a leading role in the social events of the club.

What this role isn’t, is a general club dogsbody . We want this person to do the things we have always wanted to do but haven’t had the volunteers with the time and resources to complete. We want our club to remain at its core a volunteer organisation.

Applicants should reply with a CV to
Dave Rhodes

Closing date 10th December 2016
To start in the new year
