Park’s 1st team will be playing in North 1 East (Level 6), next season, but has the desire to be promoted in to the National Leagues again as soon as possible. The club are looking for a Head / Player coach with similar ambitions and the ability to develop its young squad.
The Head / Player coach will have primary responsibility for coaching and match preparation of the 1st team squad and may also be an integral member of the 1st team playing squad as well. Player development is an essential part of the role and we are seeking someone with a proven track record of being able to do this, in order to continue with the development of our home grown players. As part of the role the new Head / Player coach will need to produce and deliver a coach CPD program for other club coaches.
Experience of coaching senior rugby is desirable and we are looking for somebody who has RFU Level 3 (as a minimum) or working towards their RFU Level 3 or who has relative playing experience.
Applicants should be enthusiastic about working in a team / club environment and will want to continually improve their coaching ability, which the club would be prepared to support.
