The University of Nottingham are looking to appoint two Netball Coaches to assist the development of the University of Nottingham Netball Club. Based predominantly at the University Park Campus the coaches will assist with the training, preparation and support of teams competing in the BUCS Leagues, with an initial commitment of 7 hours per week in University Term plus 2-4 hours on Wednesday match afternoons if available. Both posts will be generously remunerated in line with NGB standards and University pay rates.

The University of Nottingham Netball Development Coach will lead the BUCS preparation of the third, fourth and fifth teams and may offer aspiring coaches a first role into a performance coaching environment. Both posts are available with immediate effect for the 2013/14 season.

Formal applications of interest in the format of a short letter and a netball coaching CV should be sent to arrive by July 20th 2013 to the University of Nottingham Sports Development Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
