Community jobs at Leicester Tigers

Figure image
Leicester Tigers have teamed up with Premiership Rugby and the Future Jobs Fund to create five new community jobs at Welford Road.

The posts involve supporting Tigers’ ongoing community programmes, from our Dynamite Club teaching programme to Tigers Rugby Courses, Mark Group Matchday Coaching Clinics and the Aviva Premiership Rugby Schools Programme.

Applicants must be aged between 18 and 24, must be registered unemployed and able to provide a referral letter from a Job Centre Plus to confirm their eligibility.

If successful, candidates will be enrolled on a training programme which will enable them to support Tigers’ community-based projects, under the direction of our experienced staff.

They will be offered a six-month contract to start, working 25 hours a week. The opportunity will provide valuable experience for anyone interested in a career in community sports coaching.

Scott Clarke, Tigers community manager, said: “It is great news that we can take part in this initiative and create opportunities at the heart of the Tigers community.

“We want to get as many children as possible active and healthy and enjoying sporting opportunities through Tigers and these roles will be key to that.”

In total, 76 community coaching roles have been created for unemployed people across the 12 Premiership Rugby clubs.

Apply by visiting www.jobsgameon.co.uk and typing in “Premiership Rugby” or call the Tigers community team on 0844 856 1880. Closing date for applicants is Friday, March 4.

Wayne Morris, head of community rugby at Premiership Rugby, said: “With unemployment figures for this age-group reaching close to a million it’s a great opportunity for young people who are currently registered unemployed to get their foot on the ladder of community coaching and to gain essential skills.

“The successful candidates will be learning from top Premiership Rugby coaches and at the same time helping the clubs to deliver an even higher standard of community programmes through an increased number of coaches.”

Tigers also have a vacancy for a rugby development officer. Based in Norfolk, the RDO will be required to plan and deliver a range of coaching, community and company activities and must be a qualified coach to RFU Level 2.
