Job vacancy: Go-Ride Coaches - Various locations

Job title: Go-Ride Coaches (various locations)

Company: British Cycling

Go-Ride Coaches required in Birmingham | Bristol, BMX focus | Liverpool | Newcastle | Nottingham | Sheffield


The role of a Go-Ride Coach is all about:

  • Planning, delivering and evaluating cycling coaching sessions in local schools and community settings with a focus on the Fundamentals and Learning to Train stages
  • Taking positive steps to identify and overcome barriers to participation amongst participants from disadvantaged backgrounds, prioritising access and inclusion as well as work with clubs to implement learning opportunities for coaches, club officials and volunteers
  • Assisting in identifying talented young people and encourage their further development as a rider via British Cycling’s Performance Pathway
  • As an Ambassador of the organisation, you will be promoting British Cycling products and services, including membership, to participants, clubs and other partners to maximise uptake and revenue opportunities.

We'll provide the support you need to deliver progressive coaching sessions in schools, clubs and the local community, with the flexibility and freedom to make your own decisions to deliver great participation and an exceptional cycling experience for riders at all levels.  Each of the roles will initially be offered on a 12 month fixed term contract.

You’ll come up with ideas to appeal to participants in your local areas, like local promotional events and entry level racing opportunities, and work with our team back at the National Cycling Centre to promote these activities and events.  In return for delivering consistent results, you’ll receive the opportunity to learn and develop, as well as exciting opportunities to broaden your role and potentially move around the organisation.

We are keen to hear from skilled coaches with significant experience in establishing, delivering and co-ordinating participant programmes in a wide range of environments, including schools, clubs and community settings.  A current UKCC Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Cycling qualification is desirable, but not essential, as training can be provided.  This is a profession which is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and therefore an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check will be required.

Salary: £22,500 per annum
