PLEASE NOTE: Many people apply to several organisations for tournament work, which is quite understandable. However, if you accept a job with one organisation but then decide to accept a position, for whatever reason, with another, it would be greatly appreciated by all concerned if you would let all relevant parties know of your plans. It causes a great deal of unnecessary extra work, especially close to the start of the event, for organisations who suddenly find they do not have the full complement of staff they thought they had recruited.
