Harmeny AC: Event Group Coach


Closing Date:

Coaching Opportunities for Harmeny AC

Post Title:

*Event Group Coach (Sprints/Jumps)

Hours of work: 2 hours minimum

Harmeny AC have recently expanded, increasing membership from around 80 young athletes to around 150, mainly in the U9, U11 and U13 age groups.

As these athletes grow older, the club is looking to give them event group coaching opportunities in all athletic disciplines in order to retain them in the sport.

The club trains in various locations around South West Edinburgh, the main hubs being Balerno High School and Saughton sports Centre track, the latter being the likely venue for these sessions.

There is scope for additional hours of coaching as the club now has 8 regular club sessions and 15 other sessions based around SW Edinburgh.  We also have a close partnership with Active Schools through our Club Together scheme and the potential for further expansion is limitless!

The role would involve working with a team of around 12 existing coaches of all levels. The club would also offer coach development opportunities.

The Coaching Role:

The successful applicant will focus on the delivery of planned, structured, athlete centred coaching sessions for the club athletes, helping the athletes to identify and prepare for competitive opportunities.

Applicants should hold a recognised coaching qualification (If not already coaching in athletics, applicants will be expected to obtain the Athletics Coach (Level 2) qualification within 9 months). The post involves flexible working and will require evening and occasional weekend work to ensure targets and priorities can be achieved. The post will be in agreement with Harmeny AC and be on a self-employed basis.

Next Steps and how to apply:

For a confidential chat about the coaching roles available or an application pack, please phone Craig Stewart on 07983229177 or juniors@harmenyac.org.
