Goalball UK has appointed Jo Hercberg to the new full-time role of Digital and Communications Lead. Jo will work with the team to build awareness of Goalball UK and the sport of goalball both on and offline. This is a crucial time for Goalball UK as the teams prepare for the IBSA World Games 2023 and the Paralympics 2024. 

Jo comes with a wealth of experience in marketing, communications and building a digital presence for organisations including the social enterprise ‘Food Works Sheffield’ which she founded. Prior to that Jo worked in both the private and education sectors in ecommerce, marketing and communication roles. Jo started her new role at Goalball UK on 1 August 2022. 

Jo said “For the past decade I’ve worked to build the reputation and awareness of things that matter. Joining Goalball UK to help boost the sport with the IBSA World Games 2023 and the Paralympics 2024 just around the corner is a very exciting opportunity! As well as growing awareness of the sport at elite and country level, I’m keen to show the world what is happening around the UK at grassroots level too.  

Welcome to the #GoalballFamily Jo!
