Arsenal recruits for another manager – assistant kit manager

Fancy exchanging the world of recruitment for working for Arsenal?

Yes, it appears the Premier League giant isn’t just seeking a new manager following Arsene Wenger’s final game on Sunday after more than two decades in the role.

It turns out the club is also seeking an assistant kit manager to ensure the day-to-day kit requirements of all players and staff of the First Team are met in an effective and timely manner.

You will need to have GCSEs in Maths and English or the equivalent, and be proficient with Microsoft Office.

You will also need a clean full UK driving licence, while experience of working in an inventory management or sports team kit management role or working in a similar role within elite team sport would be advantageous.

We would have thought knowing your way around a washing machine and being a dab hand with the iron would help, but let it pass… The closing date for application is 18 May – good luck!
