The ITCA World team is growing. Can you help?
International Class Secretary General, Community and Regatta Secretaries - Part time/Flexible
If you love sailing and working with young people from around the world, this is for you.
ITCA are the ‘umbrella’ for National Topper Associations around the world and our role is to promote international participation.
Due to recent expansion we need to fill three freelance, part-time secretariat roles, and expand on our success and the relationships that the Class has established.
- Secretary General. To be the administrative hub of the class. Represent the Class at World Sailing and National Sailing Federation level, building relationships with sailors and Topper national class associations, and encouraging the organisation of national and regional events.
- Community Secretary. To build, grow and manage ITCA’s online communities and create marketing materials and content.
- Regatta Secretary. To plan, run and deliver international events on the water, and off.
These three roles are developmental, so you will need to be proactive to develop the full extent of your role/s, supporting ITCA as it expands.
Building on existing structures this could mean three separate people undertaking the roles, or two people undertaking one and/or two of the roles. Some international travel may be required.
The roles are freelance, part-time, flexible and can be done from home. The hourly rate is £12. The Secretary General is required for 71.5 days per year, the Regatta Secretary 64 days and Community Secretary 48 days (this particular role could expand significantly with extra work for the manufacturer Topper International Limited, but this may need to be undertaken at their premises in the SE).
