Oxford University Rugby Football Union (a Constituent Body of the RFU) is looking to appoint a Rugby Development Officer. The position was newly created in the summer of 2011 to foster and support the growth of rugby in the University. The successful applicant will report directly to the General Manager and will work closely with all other members of the staff team and the Committee.
