Wallsend Boys Club are recruiting!! We are looking for passionate, enthusiastic people who want to make a difference to people lives.
Wallsend Boys’ Club (WBC) was founded in 1904 by the employees and directors of Swan Hunters Shipyard in order to provide recreational activities for the apprentices and young people in the area, and initially specialised in boxing. The original club premises were a series of wooden huts on Station Road, erected by workers from the shipyard. A fire destroyed the original premises in 1938 and work commenced on a new club building on Station Road in 1964, which was opened on 16 December 1966.
In more recent years we have completed the first phase of redevelopment, which is now finished and involved building a new 3G Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP), funded through the sale of the Station Road site and a grant from the Football Foundation. This has enabled the club to relocate all of its representative teams to Kirkley Park.
Wallsend Boys’ Club is about to embark on an exciting project to further develop our current Kirkley Park site. Through this development the organisation will seek significant capital investment to extend our current changing block creating a Community Hub for the people of Wallsend and beyond. The organisation is to launch a new entity named Sporting Wallsend which is to provide open access provision aimed to improve health and well-being for the local community. We envisage that these roles will be an integral part of an exciting strategy going forward for the organisation.
We are recruiting for:
Operations Apprenticeship (Specialising in finance, marketing and general operations)
Sessional Outreach Workers x2
Closing date for all roles is Friday 20th September, 5pm
If you would like to have an informal discussion about any of these vacancies or would like a recruitment pack please get in touch with John Percival, Head of Facilities and Programmes. Johnp.firstname.lastname@example.org or 0191 2639490.
