RFUW calls for volunteers to make 2010 a World Cup to remember

Can you spare 2-3 hours per week to make the World Cup live on beyond 2010? If so the RFUW want to hear from you.

They will shortly be appointing 10 regional-based "Legacy Project Officers" (before you ask it looks like these will be kind-of RFU regions, so we become "London North" and there is no Thames Valley). Each LPO will be heading a team of volunteers charged with planning and delivering three projects that will promote the World Cup but also have a positive effect on the area involved. The projects should be based around four themes: More Players, More Volunteers, More Competition and More Sustainable Clubs. All the projects can be from a different theme or they can all be from the same one; whatever is best for the local situation.

Though there will be plenty of training and professional support, these will be voluntary posts. Post holders will get a budget to cover expenses (probably not vast!) plus (and I quote):
  • Free branded clothing to wear whilst carrying out your role
  • A chance to shape the rugby landscape in your area
  • The opportunity to get involved with a once in a lifetime event
  • The opportunity to become known to the RFUW and RFU
  • Tickets to the Women’s Rugby World Cup
  • A role that will look great on your CV and will be of interest to future employers, especially in Sports, Project Planning, Events Coordination and Management roles
  • Great fun with a fantastic group of people
If you are interested you need to complete this application form and send it back to Holly Hart, RFUW, Rugby House, Rugby Road, Twickenham, Middlesex, TW1 1DS or email All applications will have to be supported by a member of RFUW/RFU staff, a CB committee or University (this can be arranged). If you have any questions at all please contact Holly on the email above or by calling 020 8831 7482.

The only snag is that while these posts were first advertised in June most people seemed to miss them (possibly because they do not seem to have found their way onto the RFUW website, though BUCS advertised the post). As a result there is not much time left to apply - like you have until Friday (17th).
