scottishathletics are seeking a new National Club Manager to join our team – an exciting opportunity to help grow the sport in Scotland.

Our ‘Building a Culture of Success’ Strategy is not just about performances on the world stage, but is about the whole sport pulling together in the same direction and recognising the importance of all parts and individuals within the system.

That includes clubs, coaches, officials, athletes, event organisers, partners, supporters as well as scottishathletics as an organisation and our National Club Managers are key to that.

As it transpires, Francis Smith is leaving us for a new post with the St Johnstone Community Trust.

Everyone at scottishathletics would like to thank Francis for all his hard work with us and wish him well for this new venture.

We very much hope and expect to continue to see him in athletics as a coach and as an Official.

We are thus now seeking applications for the vacancy with a deadline of noon on Wednesday 8 December.
