We are looking for an outstanding individual with exceptional coaching experience and leadership skills.  Our new Sport Sub-Strategy 2023-28 sets out an ambitious trajectory for competitive sport in support of the University’s mission and strategic aims.  We already boast one of the leading university basketball programmes in the U.K., and alongside that our Essex Rebels basketball professional teams are positioned at the pinnacle of a much wider set of basketball activities. This encompasses a large and rapidly growing junior club, schools and community outreach, and award-winning matchday entertainment that draws large crowds from the University and local communities.  We not resting on our laurels, however, and our aim is to continue to get bigger and better. 

We are looking for a suitably qualified and experienced individual who can evidence outstanding leadership qualities and a proven track record when it comes to coaching successful teams, developing and recruiting highly talented players, and leading a successful overall basketball programme.  We aim to firmly establish ourselves as the leading HE institution for sport in the region, with basketball as one of our flagship performance sports.  To achieve this, we are seeking someone who has the vision, drive, and expertise to take our programme to the next level.

We are looking for someone with the passion, vision and the insight and understanding to actualise the ways in which the Essex Rebels can impact the wider strategic aims of the University, drawing upon additional resource and expertise from within the University community, enabling us to achieve a competitive edge.
