Job Opportunity  Every Body Active Coach - Newry, Mourne & Down (2 pt posts)

Athletics Northern Ireland is looking to recruit two Every Body Active Coaches to develop, deliver and coordinate programmes and initiatives that aim to achieve the objectives of Every Body Active 2020 in Newry, Mourne & Down. 

This will involve increasing the number of quality opportunities for targeted groups to develop and sustain participation in sport across key life-course transitions with a specific focus on women and girls, people with a disability, and those living in areas of high social need on the basis of their continued under-representation in sport.

Each post will be for 16 hours per week, leading on either running or track & field athletics.

Contract:        Initially for 6 months (finishing on 31st March 2020) with possibility of extension for a further 12 months to 31st March 2021 (subject to confirmation of funding). Due to the short-term nature of the contract we welcome applications from candidates who can start immediately

Base:               Mileage can be claimed from St. Colman’s Track, Newry

Hours:             16 hours per week but flexibility will be required at busy times. Due to the nature of the role there will be a requirement to deliver sessions during evenings and weekends. Consideration will also be given to those candidates wishing to apply for both roles.

Responsible to: Coach & Club Development Officer

Salary:             £7,800 per annum for each role

Closing Date:  Friday 25th October at 12noon. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 30th October at Athletics House, Mary Peters Track, Belfast BT9 5PR
