Bristol Jets Community Badminton Coach

Bristol Sport Foundation (BSF) invites badminton coaches to apply to join our expanding team as a Bristol Jets Community Badminton Coach.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious badminton coach to deliver high quality badminton coaching to children and young adults through our Forever Sport primary school PE and sports coaching programme within Greater Bristol. From September to May you will also support the Avon Schools Badminton Association head coach for 5 hours on Saturdays at the junior county coaching sessions.

The post-holder will also have a unique opportunity play an active role in the development and launch of new badminton clubs in Greater Bristol as well as other targeted programmes to increase the number of people playing badminton.

Hours available are flexible. Applications will be considered from candidates for both part-time and full-time badminton coaching positions.

Individual Requirements: We are looking for a qualified Level 1 or Level 2 badminton coach. All of our coaches are required to gain an enhanced DBS check on appointment and a First Aid qualification within six months of working with BSF (we will help to identify a suitable course and the course fees will be paid for by BSF) and undertake specific programme training on delivery of Badminton England’s Racket Pack.

You will be able to communicate effectively and present a highly professional image when representing BSF; establish positive working relationships with professional staff in schools and other venues, and balance a determined application of the role with a sense of fun and enjoyment. 

In addition, you will possess a valid UK driving licence and have an understanding and commitment to equal opportunities in employment and sport and an understanding of individual responsibility in complying with Health and Safety policies and arrangements.
