The Rugby Football League (RFL) is the governing body for the sport of Rugby League in the
United Kingdom. With current headquarters in Media City, Salford (it is proposed to relocate to one base at
the Etihad complex in Manchester by June 2022), the RFL administers the professional, semi-professional and community game structures, all England representative teams and the Challenge Cup competition.

The RFL also works closely with Rugby League World Cup 2021, the company who are tasked to deliver the World Cup tournament.

Our organisational values are:

United, Professional, Excellence and Respect and are intrinsic to the way it operates.

As part of our commitment to continue to engage young people in the sport, the RFL has created a Youth Board made up of 10/12 people aged between 18-24 who have a passion for the game. The purpose of the Board is to provide advice on how best the RFL can engage with young people to support us to achieve our corporate goals.

The Board will also focus on a variety of projects and issues across the game including:

  • Improving the trust and confidence of young people in the RFL.
  • Ensuring young people are not discriminated against in terms of accessing Rugby League.
  • Promoting the work of the Youth Board and the RFL.
  • In addition, Board members will also be tasked to advise on how the RFL can improve communications with young people in the sport, better understand the concerns of young people and work with the RFL Executive Board to achieve the best outcomes for young people involved in Rugby League.
  • As a member of the Youth Board, you will be expected to attend 4 meetings a year in Manchester plus attendance at some of the RFL’s major events. You will gain lots of valuable experiences in public speaking, networking, meetings and events, time management and personal development.

We expect you to:

  • Have a passion for Rugby league and the growth of the sport
  • Be involved in the sport as a player, spectator, coach etc
  • Have the time to commit to the Board on an on-going basis
  • Have some experience of volunteering

If you are an applicant with disability who meets the essential requirements of the job, we will interview you. We would be pleased to receive applications in alternative formats
