Kiwi Tennis Apprenticeships

Kiwi Tennis are looking for young enthusiastic people aged between 18 and 22 looking for a career in tennis. We are offering places on an apprenticeship scheme, where you will get the opportunity to work with our growing team of coaches. The scheme is initially one year long, with a review after the first year. Kiwi Tennis will offer strong candidates a chance of full time employment if impressing during this time.

 

Candidates will be based at a number of different venues across Auckland and being able to drive is highly desirable.

 

Job Specification

Candidates will be required to work alongside our experienced coaches on court and will assist them in all of our club, school and holiday coaching programs.  They may also be asked to help in managing these programs off-court with our administration team.  

 

The successful candidate will also be required to work in one of our Pro Shops, learning the processes and systems involved in running a successful retail store.  

 

We are looking for people with a willingness to learn, and a strong work ethic. Previous experience in coaching is not essential, but a passion for tennis is a must. A uniform, balls and other tennis equipment will be provided at no cost to the coach. We do not however provide any travel expenses, although it is very unlikely that apprentices will be asked to drive long distances.

 

Each candidate will also be encouraged to undertake the relevant Tennis New Zealand coaching qualifications.

 

Candidates will be contracted for 10-30 hours pw, based on their experience level and qualifications.  Candidates will be asked to work 6 days a week, and note that weekends tend to be the busiest time for a coach.  No time off will also be given during school term time.

To find out a more about this opportunity please contact us.
