Project 21 Staff

Our Most Valuable Asset

People are our most valuable asset and our staff are the ones who make things happen, they make sessions fun, they ensure they are safe and fulfilling. And the more top quality staff we have the better.

We need to recruit and retain both paid and voluntary staff to ensure our projects continue and grow. If you are interested in working for The Sharks in either a voluntary of paid position, please contact us by telephone on 07951 770241 or by email: Recruiting staff is only the beginning, it is training and helping them to develop is our key priority.
