*A good people manager, able to motivate the Club’s team of professional and part-time coaches;
* A ‘club person’, spending time with the members and acting as an ambassador for Squash within the Club;
* A team player – not just in the national/ county league sense (although that would be desirable) but able to work alongside the Club’s Management Team and Executive Committee in promoting the Club as a whole.
