Are you someone who –

  • is able to work on their own initiative;
  • is good at motivating and working with others;
  • is enthusiastic about athletics and willing to be an ambassador for the sport in Orkney;

…then this exciting new post within OAC could be for you.

OAC is a thriving, family friendly, amateur athletics club with a current membership of almost 200, comprising junior athletes (aged 9-18) and a developing (19+) senior section. In order to accommodate sustained growth, particularly within the junior section, OAC has identified a clear need to develop the coaching infrastructure.

As Club Development Officer, your role will be to lead in raising coaching competency and to support the club in developing qualified officials, improving links with the community and fostering talented athlete pathways and developing Senior Section.
