Regional Development Manager


The Regional Development Manager (RDM) is a key role within Scottish Hockey.

The Midland RDM will support clubs to establish good governance, workforce development and embed sustainable practice. As part of the Domestic Game team the successful candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate and lead on key initiatives that impact our diverse membership.

A vibrant forward thinker who thrives on partnership working and action, the successful candidate will be engaging and build on recent successes in the area. Clubs across the Midland region have enjoyed support for a number of years from this role and continue to thrive and develop. It is a position that requires an understanding and encouragement of (in partnership with Midland district) coach education, club development, competitions and participation pathways – all at varying levels within numerous clubs.

The role post covid will have the opportunity to be based in Dundee’s Regional Performance Centre with flexible working arrangements available.

With ongoing membership growth, a suite of connected initiatives and a developing collaboration between staff and volunteers, Scottish Hockey is well equipped to adapt to the changing sports environment.

If you’re looking to make an impact at a traditional sport, in a key geographical area, with a modern and innovative approach then we would love work with you.
