With 54 members spread across the world, the WCF leads the development of curling through a varied programme of international competitions, education and support programmes. The WCF is also responsible for the Paralympic Winter Sport of Wheelchair Curling.
The WCF is increasing its staff resource to enable it to better deliver services for its members.
The first post is WCF Broadcast Projects Officer.
