Job Title: Community Officer

Reports to: Community and Foundation Manager

Pay Rate: £10-£15 p/hour dependent on experience and role


Coventry Rugby is one of the country’s leading professional rugby clubs and on a steady upward trajectory, finishing fourth in the 2019/20 Championship, the club’s highest position in a decade.

The club and its Foundation have also expanded their work in the community over the last 18 months, working with schools, clubs and universities as well as the regular events and coaching camps at Butts Park Arena, the club’s home in the centre of the city.

Coventry Rugby is seeking to grow their pool of Community Officers who will be responsible for the delivery of community engagement projects all over the West Midlands.

Community Officers will be expected to deliver their assigned community or Foundation programmes. These will range from coaching in partnered schools to delivering specialised sports sessions from both the club itself as well as its charitable partner, the Coventry Rugby Foundation.

All Community Officers will be expected to deliver the best possible product to the group that they manage. Coordinating the programme will include activities such as organising kit, taking registers (where applicable), creating and executing session plans, as well as being a link in communication between the school/agency delivered in and the club itself.

Activities will be allocated and managed by the Community and Foundation Manager, and will be tailored to the experience of the Officer him or herself and what their assessed strengths are.

This is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring sports coaches to gain some valuable experience, be paid for their passion for coaching, and make a difference in the community via the Coventry Rugby brand.
