McGinity becomes Warriors Head of Rugby Recruitment

Warriors have boosted the Rugby Management set-up at Sixways by appointing Jan McGinity as Head of Rugby Recruitment.

Working to the Warriors leadership team of Head Coach Carl Hogg and Performance Director Nick Johnston, McGinity, a Consultant at the Club since 2013, will focus on identifying and securing talent to bring to Sixways.

Initially a personal financial advisor, McGinity then became Head of Rugby in the UK & Ireland for Essentially Group representing names such as Dan Carter and Richie McCaw before setting up The Rugby Consultancy in 2013 to work with professional rugby organisations on long-term strategies.

McGinity said: "Having been a consultant at Warriors and seen the developments with the Club on and off the pitch, this was too good an opportunity to turn down.

"Much of my role is to focus on us becoming a competitive and largely English-qualified squad, supplemented with international players bringing their experience and looking for the opportunity to play and be coached in the world-class facilities at Sixways."

Chief Executive Jim O'Toole added: "With the need for Premiership clubs to identify and recruit top talent becoming an ever more serious competition within the game, it has become more apparent that a club's long-term recruitment strategy is crucial to building its continued success.  

"Jan's appointment confirms our long-term strategic approach and it being a central focus in moving the Club forward."
