We are Hiring

Band of Birds is hiring for the position of Communications Coordinator.

This is a role for a graduate with unbeatable enthusiasm for outdoor sports. You’ll love living in the Sheffield area for all the outdoor activities the city offers and over the moon that there’s a job in the midst of it all!

But, beyond your passion for cycling, climbing, running… whatever it may be… you’ll be a supremely organised graduate who wants to get stuck into key activities that keep the business operating efficiently and moving forward. And, of course, you’ll be interested in all things comms and social media! 

The full description for the role and how to apply is available here and the closing date for applications is Sunday 16th July.

Shauna clinched her 11th IFSC world cup round win in Navi Mumbai yesterday and secured her second IFSC World Cup bouldering overall title in as many years. The achievement was made extra special considering much of the pre-season was disrupted by injury so massive credit must go to her coaching team and to Shauna herself for getting into such unstoppable form within an unideal pre-season.

Huge congratulations to Shauna from everyone at Band of Birds!
