Vacancies
We are currently looking for 2 coaches to join our dedicated team of coaches:
 
- Lead Junior and Senior Competitive Squad Coach
 
- Swim Coach/Teacher
 
Please see below for more information about each role.
 
Vacancy: Lead Junior and Senior Competitive Squads Coach needed
 
At Elmbridge Phoenix, we are a small, friendly club that is well known for punching above its weight and keeping larger regional competition honest. 
 
In 2019, we finished 7th in the Arena League South Division 1 after gaining promotion in 2018, and are blessed with exciting swimmers who have represented the club at County, Regional and National level. We have also had great success at the Surrey Finals this month.
 
We are looking to build on our successes, so are putting in place a keen growth strategy in place. 
 
Central to this is recruiting a lead coach for our Junior and Senior Competitive squads.
 
We have a lot of strong swimmers who have achieved or are working towards County Level, but who are balancing their swimming with other sports, and still want to train and compete to a high level in swimming as well as in other sports. We, therefore, need a focused, motivated lead coach who can help them achieve this and help the club continue to develop the strength of these squads.
 

The role will involve working with the Head Coach and other members of the coaching team to ensure the smooth and continued development of our swimmers. It is essential, therefore, that you are a solid team player. The hours are likely to be around 11-12 hours at poolside, plus the necessary administration.

Training sessions are evening-only during the week, and late afternoons/evenings on Sundays, but the opportunity to work with the Performance squads on Sunday mornings may also arise.

We would like to hear from applicants who are Level 1-qualified swim coaches or Level 2-qualified swim teachers who might be working towards a coaching qualification who show excellent potential and who would like the opportunity to further their coaching career, particularly if you have a sports science and/or sports psychology background, or are currently undertaking studies in this area.

You must have a valid and existing right to work in the UK and be successfully DBS-checked.

If you think this opportunity would be right for you, we'd love to hear from you, and you should send your CV to our Head Coach, Stuart Donald at [email protected]

Closing Date: Friday, 23 July 2021
 
Vacancy: Swim coach/teacher required
 
We are looking to recruit a qualified swimming coach or teacher to help with the development of our swimmers in our junior squads. 
 
You will primarily be responsible for coaching our swimmers who are in the 7-10 years old range, but there may be opportunities to work with older swimmers in the Performance and Competitive squads when required. A positive and enthusiastic approach to coaching is essential, and a background in sports science, sports psychology or a similar area could also be of benefit.
 
Training sessions are evening-only during the week, and late afternoons/evenings on Sundays.
 

You must have a valid and existing right to work in the UK and be successfully DBS-checked.

If you think this opportunity would be right for you, we'd love to hear from you, and you should send your CV to our Head Coach, Stuart Donald, at [email protected]
