Volunteers are being sought to take on the role of Royal Wootton Bassett Sports Association Chairperson, as well as Head of Ladies Section and Club Welfare Officer with Royal Wootton Bassett Town Football Club.

RWBSA Chairperson

Ahead of its AGM on 18th March, RWBSA are seeking an individual willing to take on the role of Chairperson of the Association.

The Chair's role primarily entails:

- Providing leadership and coordinating RWBSA activities to ensure that appropriate policies and procedures are in place for the effective management of the association

- Providing support to the Association Site Manager, Site Administrator, other elected Officers, volunteers and bar staff as required

- Chairing the RWBSA Executive Committee monthly meetings according to the Association's constitution and ensuring that matters are dealt with in an efficient an effective manner

- Chairing the RWBSA Annual General Meeting

- Being a member of the RWBSA Business Management Team, a group of co-opted members who meet monthly and are responsible for developing business opportunities, setting budgets and managing site operations

These tasks typically require a couple of hours' time per week, and the Chair will be supported by the excellent volunteers the Association has.

Those interested in the role do not have to be a current officer of or belong to one of the RWBSA's existing Member Clubs (football, cricket, tennis and running).

An overview of the role's requirements from the current interim Chairperson Keith Sealy is available to read here.

Anyone interested in undertaking the role is invited to contact Keith Sealy via email.

RWBTFC Head of Ladies Section

Royal Wootton Bassett Town are seeking a volunteer to serve as Head of Ladies Section with immediate effect.

The Head of Ladies Section will report to the Football Club Executive Committee and is responsible for the following:

- Developing and implementing a strategy to grow Ladies football within the club.

- Taking responsibility for operation duties within the Ladies section, working with and communicating to coaches and ensuring players' kit and training facilities are in place

- Assisting with maintaining and promoting coaching standards in line with the Club Ethos

- Keeping the Club Executive Committee informed of key progress on an ongoing basis

- Forming excellent relationship with all managers, members of the Club Executive Committee and other volunteers at the club

Those interested in the position should ideally have previous experience managing in football and must have good communication skills and the ability to work effectively and assertively within a volunteer base.

RWBTFC Welfare Officer

After a number of years in the role, current Club Welfare Officer Derek Edgington has expressed his intention to stand down from the position at the club's AGM in the summer. A volunteer is therefore sought to take over this important role.

The Club Welfare Officer is responsible for making clear the club's responsibilities when running activities for children and younger people and to help other club personnel understand what their duty of care towards children and young people involves.

To undertake the role, the Club Welfare Officer must have an FA-accepted Criminal Record Check, and also complete the FA's Safeguarding Children and Welfare Officer workshops.

A full description of the role will be available in due course.
