Recruiting for new GB Committee and support roles

The structure of international ultimate is such that we always have active GB teams. In some years, the GB Programme comprises 21 squads, and we believe this maximum number may yet increase further. Across the squads, the programme comprises 500+ players and numerous squad managers, coaches, and volunteers. We have an increasing number of practitioners providing support to GB squads.

In 2018, we announced a number of changes to the way we organise GB squads and the overall GB programme: https://www.ukultimate.com/story/gb_committee_announcement.  We have been working on these changes, alongside setting up the 21 squads that will be competing in 2019.  Today, we are starting the process to recruit the roles listed below. We want to emphasize that many of the roles related to supporting our GB teams do not require individuals that have played (or aspire to play for) GB teams.
