Gymnastics in East Renfrewshire has grown leaps and bounds in recent years, and we are now seeking more qualified casual coaches to help us meet the ever-increasing demand for opportunities to get involved in our programme.


We currently run 6 days per week at venues across the local authority, catering for around 400 children; we want enthusiastic, committed people to join us and build on the successful foundations of our existing classes. Our programme is structured by ability and run in line with Scottish and British Gymnastics regulations to give our gymnasts the best possible experience.  We offer young people the opportunity to gain Scottish Gymnastics Award Certificates, participate in display events and even compete in our annual competition, which had over 200 children involved last year.  If you enjoy providing high quality coaching at recreational level, this would be an ideal opportunity for you.


Casual Coaches must hold a UKCC Level 1 or 2 qualification (General, Pre School or Artistic).


Please note that the majority of the work offered will take place on weekday evenings up until 9.00pm and weekends from 9.00am - 3.00pm.


On 2 July 2015, East Renfrewshire Council transferred the delivery of its culture and leisure services to an arms-length organisation, East Renfrewshire Culture & Leisure Limited. The successful applicant will be an employee of ERCL.
