Head Coach Vacancy (min Level 2 and working toward level 3), Hailsham Swimming Club

An opportunity has arisen to join our small but dynamic swimming club.
We are currently looking to recruit a head coach at Hailsham Swimming Club in East Sussex - this may be an opportunity for an established coach with a proven track record or a person seeking their first head coach position. The main focus for our club will be unbridled enthusiasm teamed with a willingness to engage with our young swimmers. We are a small club with a total membership of 160 swimmers across teaching groups and competing squads.

This is a part time position (circa 12-14 hours per week), mainly evenings but with a possibility for 2 early morning sessions. We are currently based at Bede's independent school in East Sussex and our current head coach is the main swim coach for the school - if the candidate is looking for a full time position Bede's will look to join us in recruiting one person for both positions.

You must be confident to coach all abilities but your main focus will be our Performance Regional/National squad who you will coach personally. In addition you will oversee the current coaching plan for the club - from teaching groups through to national swimmers ensuring a consistent and high quality approach to our swimmers journey through the club. You will also coordinate and engage with the teaching and coaching staff to ensure the same consistent approach.

You will be backed by a 'working' committee and enjoy the support of the wider club volunteering community. We are all motivated to succeed and our last years performance speaks for itself with great performances at Sussex Counties producing several champions, more regional and national qualifications than ever before and blistering performance at Sussex and Arena League competitions.
