Widnes Vikings CEO, James Rule, commented: “We pride ourselves on being a community focussed Club. Our existing community team have developed truly impressive programmes in delivering engaging content which covers a wide range of areas; from cyber bullying through to healthy eating and smoking cessation to name just a few. I passionately believe that if we are to grow as a Club one of the key drivers will be how well we engage with people in Widnes and Runcorn and the surrounding region, not just on matchday but through the invaluable work that the team and the professional playing staff undertakes away from matchday.
“This is a very exciting role and it is essential that the successful candidate is a positive, driven individual with outstanding interpersonal skills. Our community team frequently create the first impression of Widnes Vikings and with the right attributes they can ensure the first impression is positive which can in turn lead to a lifetime association with our great Club.
