Head Coach Required For Gillingham Anchorians RFC



Appointment of a HEAD COACH

Gillingham Anchorians RFC is looking to appoint a new Head Coach for the 2020-21 season. This is a paid position with the remuneration to be negotiated.

Our preferred option is for the appointment to be for a minimum 3- year period, to be reviewed annually. This will provide continuity for the Club, and security for the appointed coach.

At senior level, we are a long-established Club, with the 1st XV currently playing in the London South East 3 league. Our 2nd XV is in the Kent Rural league.  The senior sides have come through a recent period of success both on and off the field, with a fantastic positivity around the club.  The 1st XV look set to finish mid table in LSE 3 and the 2nd XV are set to win their Kent rural league.  The 3rd XV have been competing in friendly fixtures throughout the season.

We have a flourishing youth section that now fields sides from U-17s down to minis. We are about to welcome the first group of graduates from the youth section into the senior sides.  The successful transition of this will be a key deliverable through the appointment.

A key objective will be to improve the club’s 1st XV league standing to the highest sustainable position, but equally important will be the aim of leading and developing all the Club’s senior teams, which has seen recent expansion back to three sides.

Applicants would ideally be a minimum RFU Level 2 coach, but preferably Level 3. However, experience, ambition and particularly enthusiasm will be taken into account.

All applications, setting out experience and achievements (both playing and coaching), should be sent to Club Chairman, Marc Hewett, by email to the address below by no later than Friday 3rd April 2020: marc.hewett@mahpm.com.
