Internships

 

SPEEDWORKS ARE CURRENTLY RECRUITING FOR COACH AND PERFORMANCE THERAPY INTERNSHIPS FOR OCTOBER 2018 FOR LEE VALLEY ATHLETICS CENTRE AND LOUGHBOROUGH

We are looking for qualified Coaches, Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and Soft Tissue Therapists. The successful interns will be given opportunities to work with the Speedworks development squad where they will first observe and then assist the Speedworks athletes. They will be guided through the concepts that underpin pedagogy, movement education, program design, strength & conditioning, rehabilitation and performance therapy. 

The coaching role is for individuals wanting to specialise in speed and power training and develop their specific knowledge in working with developing track athletes. We are looking for sports coaches who ideally have a coaching related degree or masters, or have spent considerable time working (paid or unpaid) in the field of strength & conditioning. The Performance Therapist will require knowledge and/or experience in sports and human performance.  Your role would be to support the Lead Coach and be mentored by a range of elite performance coaches and therapists within the Speedworks network. 

The Speedworks training system focuses on the development of a high performance environment, fostered by the integration of coaching and sports medicine. 

Speedworks currently consults with a number of professional rugby and football teams as well as leading the coaching of sub 10 second sprinters Reece Prescod and Cj Ujah, Olympic medalist Daryll Neita and World Junior finalist Dom Ashwell.   

The internships are voluntary and require a commitment for 10 months starting in October 2018, working between 10-20 hours per week. We are looking for individuals who are professional, organised, with a strong work ethic and an interest in high performance sports.  

Many of our previous interns have been so successful that they have gone on to either be employed by Speedworks or be employed by a range of governing bodies in a variety of sports.

 

To apply for any of the internships, please send a CV and covering letter to info@speedworks.training by 31st August.
