At Scottish Rugby it takes a team effort to deliver the high standards we set ourselves on and off the pitch.

As a growing organisation with many responsibilities we have a number of departments supporting every aspect of rugby and managing Scotland’s largest stadium.

Our High Performance department drives all aspects of the elite game of rugby in Scotland. The FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academy identifies and develops young players and prepares them for the professional game. The national teams have a team of skills coaches, S&C coaches, analysts, medics and physios, who are all supported by an administration team who bring it all together, managing everything from travel to training schedules.

Both professional teams in Scotland, Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby have their own team of Coaches Physios, S&C Coaches and Analysts, in addition to off-field support too, this includes Marketing and Communications, Sponsorship and Operations.

Scottish Gas Murrayfield is Scottish Rugby’s main location, which accommodates the offices for our corporate functions. From entering the main gates, you’d see our Facilities team making sure the stadium and the pitch are ready to welcome 700,000 fans through the gates for international and professional matches every year (that’s a lot of tickets our Ticket Services team have delivered).

An international match day experience is second to none. This is delivered by our Events team who work tirelessly to create moments that last a lifetime. And it’s not just rugby we do here – there are concerts and charity fundraisers too alongside hosting thousands of guests and conferences in our hospitality suites.

Rugby fans make the game what it is, and our Marketing and Broadcast teams make sure that we drive content that engages fans of every age throughout the year.

Scottish Rugby’s sponsor family is supported by the Commercial team who ensure that each sponsor is able to bring their brand to life throughout the rugby season.

Rugby Development drive the growth of the game at the grassroots level and partners with rugby clubs across Scotland to ensure rugby thrives in their community. Our Managers in this team plan the development of the game and also use business skills to assist clubs in being financially sustainable. There is a strong rugby focus as we develop rugby coaches, medics, referees and volunteers – better support means better players.

Scottish Rugby’s Communications team brings everything together and tells our story through working with the written and broadcast media to populating our own digital channels with breaking news and stories.

The game in Scotland is governed by our Legal and Governance team. This team support Scottish Rugby’s Council and the various working groups across the game.

Our People team look after our people, over 300 employees and 150 contracted rugby players. This team supports every individual to achieve their potential through their journey at Scottish Rugby. We value each individual’s strengths and believe in building a positive culture where everyone contributes to the success of Scottish Rugby.

Our people tell us they are proud to work here. That shows in what they do. Each person is passionate and is dedicated to inspiring Scotland through rugby.
