👏 A bit about you

First and foremost, you’ll be an excellent team player.  You’ll be as comfortable reading and understanding a budget as you will be working with our fantastic volunteers and staff. We need someone who understands rowing events, and what junior competitors, their friends and families and also sponsors want to see and experience.

You need to have a can-do attitude and be someone who will make things happen. You need to be creative, highly motivated and forward-thinking – someone who gets excited and inspired when they think about events.
