You are aware that it's an assistant head coach that they're looking for? Not a coaching assistant...

In reply to Oceanrower:

Yes I am aware.

Jez got back to me and said he will be in contact after the deadline.

May I ask. How much time, per week, do you spend wasting yours (and other's) time applying for jobs that you have absolutely no qualifications for?

Mountain Spirit 17 Dec 2019
In reply to Oceanrower:

Hardly any.

I sent an email with a link to my LI profile that has all my CPD and MT training on it.

The FB advert nor the UKC advert says nothing about qualifications.
