Current Available Position: Gymsports/Gymnastics Coach & Administrator

Active Attitude is seeking an experienced and enthusiastic gymsports/gymnastics coach to join our dedicated team of youth physical activity instructors. We are a progressive organisation, with growing programmes and require further coaches to provide our services to more young people in Northland.

We are looking for a gymsports/gymnastics coach who:
• Is based in Whangarei
• Is at home coaching recreational gymsports/gymnastics in a gym setting as well as community halls/schools with portable equipment.
• Has previous gymnastics coaching experience and qualifications.
• An understanding of TGfU and the New Zealand Coach Approach.
• Holds themselves to a high standard of teaching.
• Is highly organised and efficient, with proven ability to work independently and as part of a team.
• Has impeccable time management skills
• Understands the importance of communication and being able to warmly receive and give feedback to grow as a coach and team member.
• Is an extra-mile person who approaches each class with energy and enthusiasm
• Is dedicated to making gymsports/gymnastics a positive and enjoyable experience for participants.
• Has a current First Aid Certificate (or is willing to go on a course prior to Term 1 starting) and full driver’s licence.
• Can follow a system and plan to make sure customers receive a positive experience and to maximise the learning potential of each individual.

Administration:

If the candidate is interested in administration hours to go with their coaching, we would be looking at an administration role based around marketing and programme development.  Marketing experience and knowledge would be beneficial, but not a necessity as we have other administration roles within our organisation that can be worked into this position.  Session planning experience would also be beneficial.

Potential Leadership Roles:

We are after a coach that can take a range of recreational gymsports classes, however if the candidate was to have experience and an interest in any of the following aspects of gymsports, we would be interested in creating a role which would give them an opportunity to take leadership within the organisation based on their area of interest/specialisation:

  • Competitive Aerobic Gymnastics
  • Choreography & Dance
  • Competitive Tumbling
  • Trampoline
  • Boys Gymnastics
  • Marketing
  • Fitness & Personal Training for children and adolescence.
  • Club Management
  • Early Childhood Programmes (under 5’s)

Hours: 20-40 hours per week. Hours available are dependable on the candidate’s availability; willingness to take a range of classes; experience; and ability to sustain energy levels for back to back classes. Ideally, we are looking to employ someone that is after 30-40 hours per week; however we will also consider taking on coaches that are after fewer hours that might be able to share the position we have available.

Remuneration: A competitive rate based on experience and skills.

*This position will be filled when a suitable candidate is found.  Ideally we would like to fill this position by the 7th February 2017.

How to Apply:

  • E-mail ashleigh@activeattitude.co.nz and ask for one of our Application forms.
