Job Summary:
The Welsh Rugby Union Group (WRU) is proud to offer a fantastic opportunity for young people to join our apprenticeship programme. We are looking for dynamic young people who demonstrate a ‘can do’ attitude, willingness to try new things and display our values in all that they do.
The WRU Rugby Development Apprenticeship Programme provides young people with recognised qualifications, new skills, knowledge and a wealth of experience working as a Rugby Development Apprentice.

During the 12 month programme, the young people will work toward a Level 3 Diploma in Sport Development and will also be required to complete a range of rugby related technical qualifications. They will be supported and mentored by WRU development staff and receive pastoral assistance from the WRU Apprenticeship Officer.

This Apprenticeship can be a stepping stone for someone who is undecided if university is an option for them. It can give the opportunity to discover the various courses that may appeal based on real experience gained through the programme. As a 12 month employment programme, the apprenticeship also provides the opportunity to explore various options of career pathways utilising the wide network the WRU Group can offer. It is a chance to experience the world of sport development whilst achieving a Level 3 qualification. It is not aimed at university graduates.
For this enriching 12 month experience, WRU rugby development apprentices receive £9500 plus expenses.
