England Hockey is recruiting for six new positions

Following the recent success of England Hockey’s funding bids, which have secured more than £27.5m from Sport England and UK Sport, England Hockey is expanding.

2012 saw an extra 30,000 people pick up a stick, over 630,000 watch hockey at the Riverbank Arena and the Great Britain women’s team win an Olympic bronze medal. With some exciting prospects already on the horizon for 2013 and beyond, including a recent nomination for the Sports Industry Awards’ Governing Body of the Year, England Hockey is looking to expand its team to take on an ambitious 2013-17 strategic plan.
