Job Outline

A full-time position is available for those individuals interested in a dual sports science and coaching role working alongside both elite and developmental athletes. The successful candidate must have a considerable understanding and passion for both sports science and coaching (not just one or the other). The role requires use of a Mac laptop/desktop, a good understanding of Microsoft Excel and an awareness of MatLab. An avid interest in sports technology as well as strength and sprint profiling is advantageous. In particular this position should particularly appeal to those considering engaging with any sprint related research in the upcoming 2021/22 academic year - as this role will serve as good preparatory material. An ability to analyse and write up mini research projects from Speedworks training data is therefore desirable. The successful candidate should be capable of working both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team, have regularly working and well-connected internet, and be able to maintain focus for extended periods of time. In order to register your interest for this role please begin your covering letter with a potential mini project that you think would be of interest and possible to complete with the athletes, clients and coaches within the Speedworks network.

Thank you for your interest in our roles and for supporting Speedworks continuously. All the best!
