Men's Football 2nd Team Coach

University of East London - East London Sport

London, E16

£25ph for training, £60 per matchday

We are the most ambitious and the most improved university in the UK for sport and we pride ourselves on being able to provide a wide-ranging programme of sporting, health and fitness opportunities for staff, students and the wider community.

UEL Football has produced a platform for giving players an opportunity to progress to the higher levels of the sports into professional football in the football league or abroad such as Saidou Khan and Nathan Mavilla. Having become one of UEL's focus sports with more and more players are choosing their education and football with us.

Scott Bowen heads up the Men's Football Programme, with a number of years’ experience behind him in semi-professional and professional football in the UK and Abroad. Previous clubs included QPR and Ipswich Town as well as being an FA Trophy Finalist with Concord Rangers in 2020 along with time coaching with Pro Licence coaches Jonathan McKinstry and Stewert Hall.

We are looking for a motivated individual to support the running of our men’s programme with a focus on taking charge of the men's 2nd team on match days. The role will involve coaching as part of group of staff and student interns working with the first (scholarship players) and second teams coaching anything from small units in technical drills up to the entire group in an 11v11 practice. Working as part of a team is critical for the role, especially given the variety of personnel within the programme and so will need to work well under leadership but must also be able to contribute to the organising and running of the programme from session planning to recruitment.

Coaches must be a minimum of a FA Level 2/UEFA C (UEFA B preferable) and demonstrate a clear in-depth understanding of football as well as a proven coaching history of coaching teams and developing players. The coach must make themselves available for training on Monday evenings & to coach at matches on a Wednesday (kick times can vary but normally a 2pm within the Southeast of England).
This programme is extremely ambitious and looking to establish themselves as a major force at the top the BUCS Football League Structure and is seeking promotion to the highest level of BCUS football next season and progression up leagues with the second team next year and the seasons following on afterwards.

Coaches will be on a self-employed basis being paid though a monthly invoice.

Please send coaching CV and cover letter outlining your experience and what you can bring to the university to [email protected] (titled “Football Coach”) by 5pm Monday 10th July. Interviews will involve an oral and practical element and will take place over the end of July and beginning of August.
