Recruitment

Vacancy: National 12-Bell Striking Contest Secretary

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to contribute to ringing at a national level?

The National 12-Bell Striking Contest Committee are looking for someone to take over the role of Contest Secretary in June 2018.

The secretary is responsible for making contest arrangements with host towers and for facilitating the contest by guiding towers and teams through their preparations. They take the minutes at the three committee meetings each year and manage the contest bank account. Whilst attendance at the meetings is critical, much of the work is done over email throughout the year.

Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential. If you enjoy making things happen and meeting ringers from all over the country, this is the job for you!

Anyone interested should contact the contest chairman, Tim Peverett ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), by 30th November 2017.
