JOB OPPORTUNITY | Director of Women's Rugby and Juniors Development

The two fastest growing areas in rugby are female and junior participation, in 2018 Sydney Uni men’s and women’s clubs officially merged to provide equal opportunities for both our male and female athletes. The merger along with the grassroots pathway we have been developing with our junior feeder club’s (Balmain, Canterbury and Petersham) has seen the level of participation at SUFC increase by 40% since 2018.

For SUFC to continue to be the benchmark rugby club in Australia we need to continue to invest in the development of both our Junior’s and Women’s programs, this ultimately means having a dedicated and passionate fulltime member of staff on board to lead the charge. Thanks to the kind generosity from donors at the KPMG Finals Lunch, we are now in a financial position to be able to advertise the role of Director of Women's Rugby and Juniors Development.

General Description

The Director of Women’s Rugby and Juniors Development is responsible for; enhancing and managing the SUFC Women’s XV program; developing the SUFC rugby 7s pathway/program, including the management of the University of Sydney Aon 7s; enhancing the SUFC junior rugby pathway and connection to the senior club; and assisting with recruitment and retention of junior rugby players.
