Fancy A Job On The Greatest Tour On Earth?

2007’s been a fantastic season for Professional Windsurfing. A whole bunch of exciting new events were blessed with outstanding conditions.

As such we’re looking for experienced personnel to join the PWA team in various fulltime and part-time roles.

In particular we’re hunting down staff to fill the following vacancies:

We’re on the lookout for an exceptional driven individual with the necessary marketing and PR experience to fulfill the growing marketing and PR needs of the association.

·Applicants should have a proven Marketing and PR background, and be able to work independently from their own office environment without constant supervision.

·Candidates should also have some knowledge and experience of windsurfing. The role will include the output and maintenance of marketing materials as well as the creation, maintenance and implementation of Marketing and PR strategies.

Women’s Marketing / Events Manager

Due to the increasingly diverse needs of the PWA Tour, we’re searching for someone to represent the unique interests of the women’s division.

The role will be quite specialised and will involve aspects of PR, Marketing and Event Management, specifically targeting the interests and value of the PWA’s women’s fleets.
