Passionate about baseball and/or softball? Want to help grow both games in the UK? Now’s your chance!

BaseballSoftballUK has two vacancies to join the team – a rarity with our staff. Both roles are vital to our objective of getting more people playing baseball and softball in more places across the United Kingdom, with the ability to help shape the two sports for years to come. This is an incredibly exciting time for both sports, with GB Softball achieving their best-ever world ranking, more players playing across the British Isles than at any other point, and new and exciting ways to both play and promote the games.

We’re looking for ambitious, motivate individuals who want to make an impact and hit the ground running, who are excited by a challenge, and who believe strongly that baseball and softball can thrive in the UK.
