Live Life Outdoors, as part of Live Life Aberdeenshire/Aberdeenshire Council, are seeking experienced individuals to join our team as Coaches and to specifically deliver our new Cycle Programme, which will launch in 2024. We have two full time Coach posts available as part of this recruitment phase.
Based in Inverurie, the successful candidates will be part of the wider Outdoor Team and will deliver a range of activity based cycling sessions to pre-school and Primary/Secondary pupils, community events and event support, and in the longer term a venue based programme across Aberdeenshire. In addition, the post will also support our Event Support programme to ensure that local communities and wider Council linked events can be supported via our new programme and our range of event equipment.
These new roles are to ensure that our programme provides high quality and progressive sessions, using our dedicated fleet of Balance Bikes and Mountain Bikes alongside our mobile cycling tracks. The new programme aligns itself to the national training programme with an overall aim of ensuring enjoyable and safe sessions that allow children across Aberdeenshire to reinforce their confidence and enjoyment of cycling.
Whilst these posts would suit qualified National Governing Body cycling coaches or Cycle Trainers, please note that we will be delivering a participatory programme and that wider training to cover all aspects will be provided where necessary. The programme will focus on both weekdays and weekends with occasional evening work.
There is a responsibility for the post holder to demonstrate a commitment to quality service delivery through continuous improvement for the benefit of the Service and the organisation.
This post is regulated work with Children and/or Protected Adults under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. The preferred candidate will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check. Where an individual has spent a continuous period of 3 months or more out with the UK in the last 5 years, an Overseas Criminal Record Check will be required. You will be required to provide this check. A confirmed offer of employment and commencement in the post will be subject to the outcome of both these pre-employment checks being deemed satisfactory.
