Become part of the team

If you like what we do why don’t you get involved with Team FRU and join us on the journey that has made us one of the leading Rugby Websites in Ireland.

We’ve had a look at what we’ve done this season and what we need to do it better and rather than wait for the end of season we are looking to get our planning underway now.

We want to hear from people who appreciate the benefits our coverage brings to grass roots rugby and who have the drive and ambition to help us do it bigger and better.

Our No. 1 Priority is to get someone on board to help monetise the site as our income is going to drive everything we can do going forward and allow us to concentrate on producing more content.

Below are the roles we want to fill, starting with a Marketing Manager which is an immediate start for the right person.

The other roles will give fantastic insight into the media world and are ideal for undergraduates wanting to grow with us or more experienced applicants looking for an interesting way to supplement their income working from home.
