Auckland Diving Community Trust (New Zealand) – Head Diving Coach (posted 1/26/15)

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, with a population of around 1.4 million people. We enjoy a temperate climate, a clean and green image, a perfect pace and quality of life; and Auckland consistently rates as one of the world’s best cities in which to live.

Auckland Diving Community Trust is the organisation that runs diving on behalf of our city’s two diving clubs (Diving Waitakere and North Harbour Diving). It has an opportunity for an experienced Coach to live and work in our beautiful city.

ADCT is seeking a highly motivated, energetic and intelligent candidate for the head coach
position for the North Harbour and Waitakere diving clubs. Reporting to the ADCT Board, this is a full time, salaried position working with Age Group and Open athletes from recreational to elite level.

As head coach, you will be taking over responsibility for coaching our elite divers. We have some very exciting diving talent in our junior ranks and are consistently placing in the top three at NZ age-group national level. We also have one international level diver currently offshore and another who attended 2014 World Juniors. New Zealand has a proud sporting tradition and that tenacity and will to win is evident in our young divers, but the next two to three years will be a critical time for our top juniors. That’s where you can help us.

You will be responsible for implementing diving programmes to assist our divers to achieve their maximum potential, you will run or oversee our Talent Identification and Learn-To-Dive programmes, and you will provide mentoring, direction and guidance to our current coaching team. This role may suit an experienced diving coach looking for a lifestyle change or opportunity to move to a higher level.

It is, however, important that you have proven coaching experience at an international level (ideally minimum 3 years) with at least Australian/Canada Level 2 coaching qualifications (or an equivalent). Any sports administration and management experience and qualifications would be an advantage as well. The position also encompasses responsibility for the organisation and running of our marketing and promotional activities and assisting with our ‘diving in schools’ programme. You will also have good communication and presentation skills.
