Sports Coaches are responsible for looking after and coaching a group of up to 20 children (ratios vary depending on ages) delivering high-energy, fun and inclusive sessions to get every child active and having fun, regardless of their ability.

Hours can vary each day in line with child numbers and the needs of our members, but we’re looking for coaches to be fully available between 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday during the school holidays. There are also opportunities available for Bank Sports Coaches for those who cannot commit to coaching for a full 3 weeks. We can be flexible around your work or studies.

  • At least 6 months’ consecutive experience working with 5 – 17 year olds
  • At least 3 month’ experience coaching a sport, leading games or delivering activities
  • 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
  • Possess (a minimum) Level 2 qualification in one of the following fields:
    – Primary of Secondary Teaching
    – Sports Coaching
    – Physical Education
    – Paediatric First Aid (training opportunities are also available)

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.

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. 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!
