Multi Sports Coach - Dollar, Clackmannanshire

Job Type: Full Time - Temporary Contract

Overview

If you’re looking for an incredibly rewarding way to gain additional experience with children in an out of school setting, which will pay you to keep active and have fun, we’re sure we can find an amazing role for you!

Kings Camps run sports and activity day camps for children throughout the school holidays that deliver our mission – getting children active, having fun and learning together, and we're now on the lookout for a high energy team for our upcoming 2024 seasons.

We know market-leading programmes don’t deliver themselves - it’s our people who create amazing holiday experiences for children - and we’re now hiring energetic and passionate coaches (we call them Red Tops) to deliver our mission.

Why work for Kings Camps?

  • High quality, enjoyable and worthwhile experience
  • Career development and the potential of regular employment with Kings (we always promote from within!)
  • Working in an experienced staff team of coaches and managers who provide a strong support network
  • Bi-weekly personal evaluation directly from your Manager
  • Delivering market-leading activity programmes with a great range of sports and activities
  • First-class locations – some of the best universities and schools in the UK!
  • Excellent training – market-leading online and on-site training covering customer care, child protection, child supervision, child welfare and behaviour, health and safety, sports coaching techniques and creative and dynamic session development.
  • The opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of children from all backgrounds.

About the Role

Reporting to the Camp Manager and working alongside a like-minded team, you’ll be working Monday to Friday between 8am and 5:30pm with a group of up to 16 children (5-7, 8-10, 11-14 or 14-17 years), delivering high-energy, fun and inclusive sessions that get every child active and having fun, regardless of their ability.

Child safety is our number one priority so you’ll ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their lunch breaks, participating in swimming sessions, overseeing safe use of equipment and promptly recording any incidents.

Because we’re Ofsted registered, you’ll also be given the opportunity to see how we implement high standards in children’s care and wellbeing as well as the opportunity to gain first aid qualifications, interact and build relationships with parents/guardians and access to our market-leading training.

Person Specification (Ideal, but with some flexibility)

  • Available between 8am-5:30pm, Monday to Friday, during the school holidays
  • At least 6 months’ experience working with children from 5 – 17 years
  • At least 3 months’ experience coaching a sport or active games
  • Vibrant, resilient, team player
  • Flexible and adaptable
  • Level 2 or higher qualification in: Primary or Secondary Teaching; Sports Coaching; or Physical Education
  • Paediatric First Aid (training opportunities are also available)

Our Safeguarding Promise

Kings Active Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment is central to the way we work and all staff and volunteers are expected to share our commitment to safeguarding, always creating an environment where young people feel safe and can thrive.

About us

Kings Camps are a market leading not-for-profit organisation offering sports and activity day camps at over 50 UK locations, getting children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

Founded in 1991, we were inspired by US-style summer camps. We decided that youngsters in the UK would love to experience school holiday camps too, and established a model which meant we could reach even more children through not-for-profit work in the UK and overseas.

Our coaches (we call them Red Tops) deliver high quality sports camps with an energy, passion and commitment to child development that we call the Kings Factor®.
