We offer competitive rates of pay linked to the qualifications held, items of Wasps clothing and match tickets linked to the projects the referees are employed to deliver.

Schools Programme Officer Ben Smiley told, "I initially got involved with the Wasps Community Team as a volunteer, and as my experience and knowledge of rugby development grew I started to move up the pay scale within the Community Team. I am now employed full-time by Wasps and cannot speak highly enough of the Continual Professional Development that was afforded to me when I was a part-time employee."
