Lionesses career opportunity

30 May 2014

Sport strength and conditioning coach required



The Lionesses are looking for someone to join their dynamic team and assist with the physical preparation, development and conditioning of the First Team and Development squad.

One of the new 10 teams to gain licence into the new FA WSL 2 League, they are keen to expand their team by appointing a qualified sport strength and conditioning coach to support their players.

Millwall Lionesses Football Club has a history of developing young exciting players such as Hope Powell, Claire Rafferty and Katie Chapman.
The successful candidate will be a pro-active individual, who offers ideas and opinions comfortably, who is up to date with current literature and seeks to progress and innovate.

He/she will help to develop the department and educate the Lionesses players on how to prepare for competition, condition and recover like elite athletes.

They require someone who is able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the physical needs of women football players and has experience of structuring and delivering individual/squad based sessions relevant to the requirements of the sport and the various age groups.

A degree in Sports Science specialising in the physical preparation of elite athletes is required and you will need to demonstrate a record of professional development through other relevant accreditation, courses and qualifications.

Those applying must also have a BAWLA award or UK Strength and Conditioning accreditation (UKSCA).

The candidate should have excellent interpersonal and communication skills to not only interact with the staff at the club, but most important of all, with the players who vary in age.

Knowledge of football is desirable but not essential, particularly if you bring experience from other high performance disciplines.

Applicants can send their CV and covering letter to charleym@millwallcommunity.co.uk
