Testimonial from Londinium Volley

“Londinium Volley was successful in finding an experienced coach for one of our competitive teams through Volleyball England’s job search page.

"Our club received seven applications of highly qualified coaches from abroad within six weeks of posting the ad. This experience proved to us that the page is also followed by volleyballers abroad.

"We strongly recommend fellow affiliated clubs make use of this benefit as it will keep attracting the right and needed talent to England that will help further develop our sport."
