First Service Baker Tennis Academy is looking for an energetic, approachable, enthusiastic and driven coach to join our coaching team. Under the supervision of the Academy Director, your job will be to support the current coaching programme at the Academy in Witham; delivering squads, individual lessons, schools sessions as they arise and holiday camps with a view to this leading quickly to a Head coach position, reporting to the Academy Director, potentially across several sites. The current programme in place will provide a minimum of 11 hours squad time, and then individual lessons on top of this made up from lessons currently in place with the Director and others to be picked up from players joining or those on the lesson waiting list. The programme hours include afternoons, evenings and Saturdays as well as the occasional Sunday and will involve some taster sessions in schools to promote the Academy. There may also be occasional cover required at one of our other venues (Maldon and Clacton), with the potential of this growing into more regular work for the right person. Within the role, there is scope to design and deliver your own coaching programme on behalf of the academy, and be part a team creating a tennis club at one of our new sites.

There is opportunity for the right candidate to grow hours very quickly through individual lessons, developing squads, running initiatives and tournaments/matchplay. With the right vision and ethos, this role could lead to Head Coach across several sites quickly.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to be part of both an established, award winning academy programme and part of a team building a new site and club from the very start and is an ideal position for a driven level 3 or 4 coach looking to further their coaching career and lead a new challenge.

The ideal candidate for this role will be an energetic self-motivated coach keen to enthuse students with a love of the sport. You will be positive and patient to students, communicate effectively in a motivational way, and be keen to work with both juniors and adults. Ideally you will hold a full driving licence and have a car to drive to the venue.

You will be able to work on your own and as part of a team, be reliable and committed to coaching regular sessions. You will hold valid DBS, First Aid and Safeguarding certificates and your own public liability insurance.
