Head Admin (Freelance)

6 min read | 4 Aug 2022

British Esports is looking for freelance head admins who can work with a team to help support the schools and colleges participating in the 2022/23 British Esports Student Champs. 

We’re looking for a head admin per title in the British Esports Student Champs: 

  • Rocket League
  • Overwatch 2
  • League of Legends

Although each head admin will be selected for a certain game, all admins should help each other with tickets and advice if they are available. Head admins must be available 2-6pm every Wednesday throughout the academic term.

If you’re keen to develop skills as a tournament admin, and passionate about supporting grassroots esports, please look at the description below and if interested, apply with a CV and cover letter. This is designed for applicants who would like to dedicate more time and involvement to helping the Student Champs.

If you feel the head admin role is not quite suited to your skill set or your availability, please look at the volunteer admin roles which are more suited to individuals looking to gain experience.

Please note: We can only appoint applicants who are not currently playing for a team in the British Esports Student Champs. Admins from 2021-22 Champs year will also be required to reapply for 2022-23, so the application process is fair and open to all. This is a freelance paid role.

Pay: £12.50 per hour.

Hours: 2-6pm each Wednesday (4 hrs per week)
