Job Details

Our coaches – we call them Red Tops – deliver high quality sports sessions designed to get children and young people active, having fun and learning together. To become a Red Top, you’ll need  energy, passion and a commitment to child development. We call this The Kings Factor.

We’re looking for high energy individuals who can demonstrate the following skills and experience:

  • At least 6 months consecutive experience working with 5 – 17 year olds
  • Appropriate experience delivering Football programmes or coaching Football
  • A willingness to liaise with parents, delivering high quality customer service

Child safety is our number one priority, so coaches need to ensure that the welfare of the children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their breaks, participating in sessions and overseeing the safe use of equipment and promptly recording any incidents.
Football Coaches are responsible for coaching and looking after a group of up to 20 children (depending on age), where sessions typically last around 30 – 60 minutes.

Popular programme weeks may require Assistant Football Coaches, so you’ll need to be able to work proactively and collaboratively as a team.

We’re looking for coaches to be fully flexible for Football Kings Programme weeks between the hours of 8.15am and 12.45pm, Monday to Friday.
We also have the odd pre-camp training date which may fall on a weekend (but we’ll let you know dates in advance).
We pay above the National average hourly wage plus additional accrued holiday pay.

The Kings Active Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment is central to the way we work and all staff and volunteers are expected to share our commitment to safeguarding, always creating an environment where young people feel safe and can thrive.

Staff selection process includes:

  • An interview (approx 40 minutes), via video call, which covers suitability, experience, skills, attitudes as well as the opportunity to showcase an activity session plan
  • If successful at interview, we will speak to at least 2 professional references from your work history
  • Once offered a position, this will subject to satisfactory enhanced disclosure with barred list check (or equivalent for Scottish Residents)

Ongoing training and performance evaluations will feature in the role, with structured support from your Site Manager and performance targets communicated.
