Kit co-ordinator needed – not too onerous a job and gets you involved with your club and all members/volunteers.
We need someone to take over the kit co-ordination with Kudos (and the lovely Spencer!), keep up to date records of kit we have in stock and order at the relevant times, issuing a polo shirt and hat to any new junior squad member, lifeguard, coaches and that’s really it.
With a club membership of 160 odd swimmers & volunteers if you can help please email email@example.com
