One of our key drivers within the Volunteers Sector at the GRFU is to help our clubs by recruiting new volunteers across the county. There are many roles within rugby's volunteer workforce, and we are keen to hear from both individuals looking to get into volunteering, and clubs with volunteering requirements, so that we can help in the volunteer recruitment process.
How Do I Voulnteer At A Club?
Rugby across Gloucestershire is built on the vital and dedicated work of our volunteer workforce. Within rugby clubs there are a wide variety of roles that are filled by volunteers, including club administration, club finance, catering, website input, photography, press releases, events organisation, fundraising, marketing, coaching & refereeing.

Volunteer Workforce Map
The volunteer workforce map is a helpful tool, provided by the RFU, that can be used to enable clubs to assess their volunteering structure, and identify gaps in provision and opportunities for recruitment. Individuals looking to volunteer can also refer to it to gain an overall perpective of the types of opportunites that may be available at a local club.
