Catering Franchise Opportunity at Wharfedale RUFC

May 18th, 2019 Comments off

Following the retirement of our current caterer we are currently inviting applications for the club’s catering franchise.

This is an excellent bolt on business opportunity for anyone in the catering trade as the commitment is only on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the rugby season with the occasional evening celebratory meal.

Wharfedale Rugby Union Football Club is the largest sporting organisation in the Yorkshire Dales and the Craven area with attendance regularly over 500 at 1st team games along with a vibrant mini section that often attracts over 200 players and their families on Sundays.

The ideal candidate will have the necessary catering experience, be able to maintain and manage a small commercial kitchen and staff that provides up to 100 pre-match meals for officials, supporters and sponsors, post-match players meals and hot and cold snacks, food and non-alcoholic beverages for all the supporters and visitors.

Full details are available from our Commercial Officer, Claire Gains by e-mailing her at

WRUFC Apprenticeship Scheme

May 15th, 2019 Comments off

Whilst as a club our aim is to provide an excellent environment for young people to improve their sporting and rugby skills, as they reach 16 and beyond careers also need to be considered and forged.

With this in mind the club has set up an apprenticeship scheme with a number of local companies. Apprenticeships combine learning and qualifications with earning a wage which is a huge win for all concerned.

More details of the scheme are available by clicking on the Apprenticeships tab near the top of this page.

We would like to take this opportunity of expressing our thanks and appreciation to the companies involved.
