  • Speculative Application - Sports Coaches

    Don't see the job for you? We always want to hear from qualified sports coaches with a passion for what we do! Feel free to apply and if you are suitable for a role that comes up we will get in touch.​ Hello from our Leadership Team Are you someone with a passion to challenge the inequalities faced by children? Do you believe it’s unacceptable that 800,000 children are living in deprivation in London – which is more than the rest of England and Scotland combined? Do you want to make a difference to children with few opportunities? If the answer to these questions are yes, then you may well fit right in! There are many reasons why the work we do at Greenhouse Sports is important. We work with young people from deprived backgrounds because the crisis for children living in deprivation is real and urgent. Children from the poorest families are 3 times more likely to not participate in any extra-curricular activities compared to those from wealthier families, and they lack many opportunities that are available to their wealthier peers. Sports gives these young people an opportunity, and in many cases their only opportunity, to participate in sports, physical activity and mentoring. We believe that every child deserves a fair chance to succeed in life and with your support we can improve the life chances of over 7,000 young people a year in deprived areas of London by helping them develop essential life skills, increase their engagement with education and give them positive activities to take part in outside of school. For everyone employed at Greenhouse Sports, it’s more than just a job. From our coaches on the front-line, delivering to children first-hand, to our office staff – we all truly want the same thing: to make a difference to young people living in London. Greenhouse Sports is a medium sized charity but our work and impact is far-reaching and we think big! We are focused and professional in meeting goals and targets, but know that it is important everyone maintains a healthy work-life balance and feels well looked after. Last year, our annual staff survey said that 95% of respondents to the staff survey say they enjoy working for Greenhouse; 84% say we responded effectively to the pandemic; 80% feel they can express their views openly to their manager; and 90% feel their colleagues are passionate about the work they do for Greenhouse. I hope you will consider applying and joining the Greenhouse family.Adam Whale, Director of People and Culture
