Becoming a Head Coach

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed coaches to join the Head Coach Team and lead our 2017/18 programmes.

Being a Head Coach for CoachBright is amazing. You gain leadership, time management and organisation skills, and you have a dedicated team around you, who spread positivity and commitment. The best part is, you get to meet like minded individuals and share a journey with them, with a mission to tackle educational disadvantage.

Who We're Looking For

We are looking for students who are:

  • Reliable - you will be a role model to everyone on the programme so will need to be early to each session and available to chat when coaches/coachees have problems.
  • Super organised - keeping a track of all coaches and coachees on the programme is a central part of your role so this one is crucial, as is time management!
  • Professional - you will be the person that school staff see each week and will need to liaise with them continually to ensure the smooth running of your programme.
  • Approachable - not just a leader for the coaches, you will also be the first point of call for year 9s, 10s, 11s and 12s and they need to feel comfortable coming to you whenever they have problems or feedback to share.

You will also be someone who embodies our three CoachBright values: Humility, High Expectations, and Serving the Team.
