Resident & Men's 2nd XI Coaches
West Hampstead HC are looking to recruit 2 coaches to join our coaching team for the 2018/19 season. The positions available are a Resident Coach and a Men’s 2nd XI Coach.
The club currently fields 8 Men’s teams, who play their home games at 2 high quality pitches at a local school. The club offers competitive hockey for all abilities, but with an excellent social scene at our clubhouse in West Hampstead, London.
The Men’s 1st XI have narrowly missed out on promotion from South Premier Division 2 for the past two seasons, while our Men’s 2nd XI currently play in MBBO Regional Division 2.
The Resident Coach position is a coaching role with playing opportunities. Applications are invited from British citizens and those from overseas with the appropriate visa. The Coach is required to coach or train with the men’s and ladies’ senior sides during weeknights, and also to coach our junior section and in local schools. Matches are played on Saturdays. Remuneration includes a monthly fee, and the opportunity to live (effectively) rent-free in a 1-bedroom flat in the heart of West Hampstead, with great transport links and only 15 minutes from Central London.
The Men’s 2nd XI Coach will be required to coach the team from 8-10pm on a weeknight (precise day to be confirmed ASAP), from September to April. Remuneration levels will depend on coaching credentials.
Successful candidates will have played and/or coached to a high level, and will demonstrate a willingness and ability to buy into the club’s ethos and contribute to the club as a whole.
To apply for either position, please send your hockey CV and covering letter to the club’s coaching officer Chris Greenwood - all applications to be received by 22 June 2018.
