2nd XV Head Coach Wanted
Heriot’s Rugby Club are looking to appoint a 2nd XV Head Coach for the forthcoming season 14/15. This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious coach to gain valuable experience coaching the National Reserve League Division 1 XV at one of Scotland’s top club sides. The ideal candidate will have experience of coaching, or playing, in the Scottish game.
The club has qualified for next seasons British & Irish cup which will present a welcome challenge to our large playing squad. We consider our 2nd XV of paramount importance to the future success of our club and as part of the wider coaching team you will also have the opportunity to work with the 1st XV senior squad. You will also be instrumental in our academy system which aims to develop players to Premier 1 standard and beyond.
Our expectations for 2nd XV performance, and results, are high. We expect your ambition to match that.
Players for Season ’14/15
Season 14/15 is going to be hugely exciting with B&I Cup rugby returning to Goldenacre. We play in the top division in Scotland, and have a strong track record of producing players for Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland. Over the last 5yrs alone we have had over 20 players move into the professional game. We have also recently launched Heriot’s NextStep Academy which will see former Heriot’s players who have gone on to play international rugby return to the coaching staff for next season (full details here).
We also are an extremely social club where enjoyment is at the forefront of how we play both on and off the pitch. If you are looking to take your game to the next level, or have a great time playing for a great club, then we are the club for you.
