Vacancy: Inclusive Community Rugby Coach

Bristol Rugby Community Foundation has a vacancy for inclusive and specialist sports coaches and practitioners to join our expanding full-time team as an Inclusive Community Rugby Coach (ICRC).

As an ICRC your role will be primarily focused on delivering high-quality specialist programmes to service users with a range of additional needs including Special Educational Needs (SEN – MLD, SLD, PMLD, ASD, SEMH) and physical disabilities.

In addition there will be opportunities to work in wider inclusive programmes working with over 55’s, adults with learning disabilities and/or complex and challenging behaviour, and individuals affected by loneliness, social isolation, depression and dementia.

Our ICRCs will also have the opportunity to play an active role in developing the enjoyment and experience of our game among our partner combination rugby clubs. This will involve building strong relationships within our local rugby clubs through disability/inclsuion hubs and to help strengthen their capacity to provide accessible sessions for a wider community needs base.

Individual Requirements: As a minimum, you must have two years experience or more coaching/teaching service users with special educational needs/learning difficulties, physical disabilities and/or identified additional needs and hold a DBS Enhanced Disclosure Certificate.

Each ICRC will need to gain a RFU/1st4Sport Level 2 coaching qualification and a First Aid qualification within six months of working with BRCF (we will help to identify suitable courses and the course fees will be paid for by BRCF).

You will have a sound understanding of rugby as a sport and the elements of team development in sport as well as recognised experience of coaching Rugby Union.

You will have experience working with young people and/or adults with a range of communication difficulties and implementing strategies to overcome them; be able to communicate effectively in wider capacities and present a highly professional image when representing BRCF; establish positive working relationships with voluntary and professional staff in clubs, schools and community orgnisations; and balance a determined application of the role with a sense of fun and enjoyment. 

In addition, you will possess a valid UK driving licence and have an understanding and commitment to equal opportunities in employment and sport and an understanding of individual responsibility in complying with Health and Safety policies and arrangements. 

Although the majority of your working week will take place between the hours of 9am and 5pm, there will be identified community sessions between the hours of 5pm and 9pm on a weekly basis, as well as periodic programme events at weekends. It is critical that you are committed to and able to work within these parameters to meet the needs of our programmes.
