We are looking for enthusiastic and highly motivated assistant athletics and  basketball and coaches, who will help to deliver fun, engaging and skills based coaching sessions, to the young people involved in our Sports Development programme.

As an assistant coach, your role is all about supporting the head coach with the delivery of creative, fun and structured coaching sessions.

We are looking for people who are passionate about sport and can inspire and motivate the young people in our programme to develop their sporting skills and promote the benefits of an active healthy lifestyle through sport.

This will involve our sport development coaching programme, Active Schools programme (primary and secondary), school holiday sports camps and event programme.

We are looking for candidates who hold up to date or are currently working towards achieving  National Governing body qualifications in the next 3 months and be prepared to update when required (UKCC Level 1 as a minimum).
