Well, if you’ve got this far and keen to read on, you must be ready for a new career challenge, be the kind of person who is open-minded to fresh possibilities or, perhaps, you’re just one of the 100s of 1000s of people who has already fallen in love with our sport.

Whichever it is, with our ambitious, new strategy, success of obtaining seven medals at Birmingham 2022, new leadership and renewed purpose, this is a great time to join our Bowls England team.
