Staff Application

The Overguard is currently a non-profit organization, where any revenue is cycled into prize pools. Although The Overguard owners and our existing staff are currently on a volunteer basis, our aim is to have paid positions available in the near future. Our staff are seeing only the beginning of a growing range of benefits from our partners & sponsors. We expect many opportunities to arise in the near future, and we will be focusing on commending and highlighting our staff to the community. Our volunteer staff will be the absolute first preference for paid positions as they arise.
