If you would like to get involved with the running of the Club and ensure you have a say in the important decisions, please consider signing up to a Committee role. Whether you have a lot of spare time or hardly any, there is a role to suit everyone. Experience is not essential and it all looks good on the CV!!
There are still some positions available on the 2016/17 committee. If you would like to apply for a role or know more, please contact Kirst or Ross.

Welfare Representatives (Men's side)

What do they do?
The welfare of our members is of paramount importance to the Club. The role entails ensuring our welfare policies are up to date and adhered to, as well as dealing with any issues of welfare raised. Ideally, we require a male and female officer to meet the needs of both sides of the Club. The Club would send the officers on an England Hockey run ‘Time to Listen’ course to assist them with their role.

How much time is required?
In season.

Fundraising co-ordinators (2 persons)

What do they do?
Fundraising at Firebrands is a very important role. At present we raise lots of money at socials however, the time has come to have a focus on fundraising on a much larger scale. The role would suit two people in order to be successful. You would liaise closely with the social secretaries as well as organise independent fundraising events. Firebrands are currently signed up to the Weather Lottery and easyfundraising, which would need further promotion, as well as researching and setting up other initiatives.

How much time is required?

Grant Officer

What do they do?
There are a wealth of grants available to us as a Club, it's just knowing where to look, having the time to research and filling in the application forms. This role would be ideal for someone who already has experience of obtaining grants but it's not essential. The role works closely with the Facilities Manager who will highlight areas which would require investment and improvement.

How much time is required?
All year round.

Noticeboard Administrator

What do they do?
This role involves setting up and maintaining the noticeboard in the clubhouse. You don't have to be artistic to apply, just willing to give your time.

How much time is required?
Initial set up is around the beginning of Sept. From then on, it’s ensuring social posters, sponsors and news are up and maintained.
