Service Area Jop Opportunities

The Wigan & Leigh Service Area are looking for a group of Rugby League enthusiasts to deliver coaching within the Service Area programme for the 2008-09 series.

There are Eight Assistant Coach Positions and Four Head Coach Positions, Four Team Manager Positions and Four First Aid Person Positions available. Assistant Coaches, Team Managers and First Aid Person responsibilities commence in February until June and Head Coach Responsibilities commence in January until June.

Coaching at the Service Area level opens many doors for further development within the RFL, the Amateur clubs, as well as in the Professional clubs. Service Area Coaching is the first step on the RFL’s Coach Development Pathway and many of our coaching staff progress after Service Area through this Pathway.

This year we have reduced the period of commitment for the roles to open the positions up to more coaches.

The Service Area is looking to build on their already established recruitment process and continue to produce a professional Service Area programme. We strive for perfection at every instance and push to be as professional as possible, we expect the same commitment from our coaching staff.

These positions are voluntary.
