Job opportunities with Excel Sports Academy

Excel Sports Academy is always looking to recruit new staff, and would be happy to hear from anyone interested in the following roles:

  • Camp Manager

Experience managing a sports camp or as an Excel Sports Coach is required.

  • Specialised Sports Coach

Applicants must have a coaching qualification for one of the specialised sports Excel offer on site, and be able to lead a team of coaches. Note some Excel activities, such as swimming, are subcontracted out.

  • Sports Coach

Applicants must have a sports qualification or have played to a high level.

  • Assistant Sports Coach

Applicants must have an interest in all sports and ideally be specialised in at least one of the Excel activities offered on site.

All staff must have the correct qualifications and experience. Staff are required to be interviewed, references checked, sports coaching qualification checked, and pass the Disclosure Scotland check and be part of the PVG Scheme.

First Aiders are a valuable asset. Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to childcare and sport, have experience of coaching children and are required to attend a training day before each seasonal camp begins.

Competitive rates of pay with jobs available during the Easter, summer and October holidays would suit a university or college student.

Work Experience and Volunteers

Successful candidates will have gone through a formal interview, reference checks and induction training prior to starting. Valuable ongoing guidance and support is provided, and assessment or references supplied on request. Volunteers are paid a fee of £120 to adequately cover all expenses they might incur during the week.
