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 to possess 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 – 8 year olds
  • At least 3 months experience coaching sport, leading games or delivering activities
  • Hold or willing to acquire a valid paediatric first aid qualification
  • A willingness to liaise with parents, delivering high quality customer service
  • A real team player who’s happy to rotate duties and form positive relationships
  • At times things change, so you’ll need to be flexible, with a willingness to adapt
  • Leadership skills with a vibrant and confident personality
  • Not afraid to get involved with paperwork or preperation
  • Possess(a minimum) Level 2 qualification in either; Primary Teaching, Education or Childcare, Sports Coaching and Physical Education

Child safety is our number one priority, so coaches need to ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their lunch breaks, participating in swimming sessions, overseeing the safe use of equipment and promptly recording any incidents. Each camp will have a team of Multi-Sports Coaches, so you’ll need to be able to work proactively and collaboratively with your peers. You’ll also need to maintain professional relationships with children, parents and carers, communicating positively and providing feedback on a child’s progress throughout camp.

Activities can include anything from coaching football, tennis and badminton to leading building games, Each session is typically (depending on age) between 30 – 40 minutes long.

KS1 Coaches must be available for the full duration of the shorter seasons, and in summer (our busiest season) for a minimum of 3 consecutive weeks between 8am – 6pm, 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.

We’re committed to safer recruitment¬†

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.

  • 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. High performing coaches will be entered onto our staff development programme, with the aim of securing a future promotion (we actively seek to promote from within) and a priority contract for the following seasons!
