Burton Albion Football Club are seeking a Head of Academy Coaching who will get a buzz from working in an elite sporting environment, in particular football and will have a desire to develop their own knowledge, skills and capability to be at the leading edge of coach development. The successful candidate will have a passion for working with coaches to develop them so that they are able to achieve, they will also take ownership of the coach development approach and will enjoy creating structure to work in a methodical, planned way, enjoying the 1:1 and group interaction when working collaboratively.

Achieving results through others is key and they will build trust by showing humility, behaving consistently and putting the needs of others first. The successful candidate will listen to others’ perspective and understand why people (individuals/ groups) do what they do.

They will also tailor their approach and method to suit the differing needs and levels of readiness of people (individuals/ groups), using a broad range of influencing skills to win people over and be able to ‘sell’ the development agenda.
