Frequently Asked Questions
Got any queries about the recruitment process?
Take a look at our frequently asked questions……
I would like to coach sports to children in schools. What qualifications do I need?
We accept applications for full-time and part-time vacancies from candidates who hold valid Level 2 National Governing Body qualifications (i.e. UK Level 2 Gymnastics). Holding valid first aid and safeguarding children certificates would also be advantageous.
What if I do not hold a level 2 sports qualification?
This is a question we get asked frequently. At PH Sports, we invest heavily in our staff’s professional development. In some counties, schools will only accept staff with Level 2 NGB qualifications. If you hold a level 1 sport qualification, then have you considered an apprenticeship with us? Take a look at our apprenticeship page.
How can I apply for a position with PH Sports?
We are always looking out for talented members of staff who are enthusiastic about working with children. You can apply online either on our website or through Indeed.co.uk or careerinsport.co.uk.
If you have any queries, please give us a call to have an informal chat!
How soon will I receive a reply once my application has been submitted?
We aim to respond to all applications within 5 working days. We will never leave you waiting for a response and pride ourselves that we always take time to reply to candidates, whether they are successful or not at reaching the interview stage.
Will I need to interview for a coaching position?
You will need to have an informal interview with us. The best way to assess how great you will be as a PH Sports employee is to see you in action! If you are invited to interview you will be asked to deliver an after-school club for us, where you will be observed by a senior member of staff.
Don’t feel under scrutiny, we would love to see you interact with the children and manage behaviour in a positive way rather than a technical session that the children don’t engage with.
How soon will I be able to start coaching with PH Sports?
Once you have interviewed, the area manager will contact you regarding the outcome of the observation.
Because we are a company that is growing year-on-year, we often have hours available for casual or part-time staff, so you could be starting immediately or even the following term!
We are very flexible and will work together with you should you be successful to ensure that we fit sports delivery hours with PH Sports in with your current work commitments.
