Every year many young and up-and.-coming match officials take part to our tournaments around the world. In order to support them and offer them the “experience of a lifetime” we need help from passionate staff members, who are willing to help running our many events.
If you don’t want or can’t join us as a referee, you are more than welcome to join us as one of our staff members. An experience as a staff member at an international tournament is just as rewarding as refereeing there.
We are currently looking for people who are passionate about sports and love travelling and the idea of working in event management. In particular, we are looking for people to cover both senior and junior roles within our event management department.
Successful candidates will get free travel (or travel reimbusement up to a fixed amount), accommodation, food and a range of other benefits during out events. Please note that being a not-for-profit organization, we are not able to offer full-time paid positions. All the positions we offer are “expenses paid only”.
In particular, we are looking for people willing to cover one of these roles:
Referee Manager – in this position you will coordinate a team of up to 15 people during one of our bigger events. You’ll be responsible for referee logistics, you’ll make sure all transport and accommodation arrangements work as planned, you will support the tournament’s referee director in making sure that the event runs smoothly from start to finish. This is a senior role, as such the ideal candidate has previous experience in managing groups and working in groups. You must be able to speak and write in English fluently, any other language is considered an asset.
Referee Office & Area Managers – These are junior positions, ideal for younger staff members. You’ll be part of the referee office team and either work in the office during registration and check-in or on the fields once the tournament starts. You’ll deal with the referees and observers, make sure all their needs are taken care of and that the refereeing “machine” works properly. The Referee Manager (position above) will be your main point of contact. For this position we need people who are happy to work in a team, and are passionate about international events. You must be able to speak English a good level.
We need all candidated to fill out a “personality test”, which will be the first step of our selection process. If the answers you give to this test are satisfactory, you’ll be contacted by a member of our staff for more details about how the selection process works.
