Massage Therapist (Great North Run)
Available from 9 September 2018
Our runners will be feeling totally exhausted, with aches and pains in places they didn't know existed. Using the last of their energy they make their way over to our post-race reception area to have some of those aches and pains soothed.
Our runners are raising vital funds for Save the Children. We cheer them on during the race by making a lot of noise. We want to show our them how grateful we are for their many hours of training and running on the day, by offering a post-race massage. We can't do this bit... but you can.
Do you have a recognised message therapist qualification and experienced in giving massages? Would you be willing to generously donate your Sunday? If so, we would love to hear from you!
Save the Children will have a dedicated area and you'll be part of a small team giving 10 minute lower body massages to the runners. You're gonna be busy! You'll be in demand! So, bring along plenty of enthusiasm and stamina and be happy to chat to our runners needing some post run TLC. We're going to need massage tables so we'll need you to bring yours on the day.
You'll also need to provide evidence of your qualification and your indemnity insurance (£1m) to be able to provide massages.
Don't expect to give a quiet and peaceful massage; expect to join in the fun to help our runners celebrate their success. If you're happy to roll your sleeves up and get massaging in a lively setting then this is the role for you.
