Be Part of Rugby World Cup 2015! Club Volunteer Applications.

Rugby World Cup (RWC) 2015 takes place in 10 host cities in England plus Cardiff from September 18 to October 31, 2015. England 2015 is looking for 6,000 exceptional volunteers to help stage RWC 2015 and make this a truly great tournament.

As part of the Volunteer Programme England 2015 want to recognise the Rugby community who volunteer to support the Game week in, week out. England 2015 also wants to invite new potential players, volunteers and spectators to the Game, and promote legacy and involvement in the sport after RWC 2015 has finished.

Given the strength and depth of volunteering in the Rugby community it is important to recognise the contribution of existing volunteers by ensuring that 75% of the 6,000 roles go to them.

Millwall RFC has 2 nominations + 1 sub available to make.  If you are interested in applying to be a club volunteer for RWC2015 please email secretary@millwallrugby.com (or see a member of the club's management) with a paragraph on why you believe you will make a great ambassador for us.  

I will then email you more information so you can be certain you can make the necessary commitment before we send in our nominations to the RFU.  

Applications to club management close on 4 April so we have time to review, discuss and choose who Millwall RFC will put forward. 
We will let you know if you're successful on 9 April which gives you a week to fill in the official online application form.

We are looking for volunteers who are ready to roll their sleeves up, get stuck in and potentially get wet!

Volunteering at RWC 2015 will be different to what many rugby volunteers are used to. It won’t be the same as the role you might currently perform at your club, but it will be the experience of a lifetime and something to tell the grandchildren about.

You will be the face of the RWC 2015, welcoming the world to England and to Rugby. Everyone is invited.

The application period is now open until 17 April.

If you are unsuccessful with the club application, you can still apply through the general public ballot. Get in touch with secretary@millwallrugby.com to find out how you could volunteer at RWC 2015.
