The Croquet Association, the National Governing Body for the sport, is seeking to appoint a National Development Officer (NDO) to promote Croquet as a competitive sport throughout England. The NDO's main role is to increase the number of clubs and players and enhance the public profile of the sport.
As the successful candidate will need to work closely with officers of the Association, its Federations and Clubs, he/she would probably have a professional, graduate background. Knowledge of Croquet would be advantageous but not essential. Above all, the candidate must have outstanding interpersonal skills, a cheery disposition, and the demeanour to command respect.
The position will probably be part-time and working hours will need to be flexible. As the candidate will work from home, a positive, can-do attitude will be essential.
A job description can be obtained from the CA website. Remuneration will be negotiable based on an annual full-time equivalent of around £30,000.
The closing date for applications is 3rd March, 2017. They should be submitted by email to Brian Shorney, CA Chairman of Council, brian#shorney.net. Your covering letter should set out the reasons for your application, the strengths underpinning your candidature, an attached up-to-date CV, and contact details of two referees.
