An opportunity has arisen to work as a Performance Analysis Intern at Lincoln City alongside Liam Youngs (Senior Performance Analyst). Liam would like to offer an internship opportunity to a willing 2nd or 3rd year student from any course within the School of Sport & Exercise Science. This role would give the person(s) a great insight into the demands of football and also a possible future career in sport. Liam had this same role himself last season and found it to be a fantastic opportunity that led to a full-time role following the completion of his degree.

Liam is keen to get the new intern started as soon as possible, to become familiar with new software etc. He would need from you an up-to-date CV and a cover letter (maximum of 1 page). He would prefer that all CVs and cover letters are sent to him (liam_youngs@hotmail.com) before Wednesday 4th July. If you have any questions please also contact Liam as soon as possible, but he has provided this description:

“The main part of the job role would be to film Lincoln City matches and training sessions. As I understand this is the students’ summer period, this opportunity would start as soon as possible to ensure that they receive the best learning experience before university resumes; the individual would be better able to get much of their learning in before term starts. The role is voluntary and unpaid for the duration of 1 year, but the experience that can be gained can further a career, as it did my own.”

Essential Criteria:
a) interest in football
b) hardworking
c) an eye for detail
d) innovative
e) able to meet deadlines

Desirable Criteria:
a) previous filming of live matches (any sport)
b) a MacBook to support software (however this is not essential!)

Lincoln City FC Sport & Education Trust are seeking a number of sessional coaches to work in some of the different Football Development sessions that we run through the week at their Football Development Centres.These sessions include, Mini Kickers, Goalkeeper training, Football Development Centres and the Advanced Development Centre. It is important that coaches applying for these positions are living in the Lincoln area throughout the Academic year. They currently have sessions that run Tuesday, Thursday & Friday Evenings and Saturday Mornings and will consider candidates who can work one or more of these days.

Ideally they are looking for FA Level 2 qualified Coaches but will consider FA Level 1 Qualified candidates if they have suitable previous experience and demonstrate a good level of coaching knowledge through the recruitment process. Coaches will be paid £10 p/h for the work they do at the Centres, who will provide a curriculum and session structure for all coaches to follow and deliver as part of their Long Term Development Model.

They are also happy to welcome volunteers as Assistant Coaches, who don’t currently meet the recruitment criteria for the above positions but would like to gain experience in a professional coaching environment.

If you would like more information or you would like to apply for one of these positions please send a CV and covering letter to Dave Fox (Football Development Manager): dave.fox@lcfcset.co.uk
