We're looking for coaches

Millwall Rugby Club is a friendly community rugby club based on the Isle of Dogs, near Canary Wharf in London. We currently field 3 men’s teams, a women’s team and 3 youth teams and our 1st XV is currently in Essex 1 (division 9). We’re looking for:

  • Forwards Coach – Minimum RFU level 1 and appropriate CPD courses
  • Backs Coach - Minimum RFU level 1 and appropriate CPD courses
  • Assistant Coaches – to support one of our Men’s, Women’s or Youth Squads – on a rota basis.
To start as soon as possible – later starts can be accommodated if we are sure you’re the right person for our club.

In all of the roles, you will be part of our club coaching team and support volunteers who produce successful teams on and off the field. We anticipate the roles to be voluntary positions but we will reimburse you for reasonable expenses.  We are also very keen to develop skills within our coaching team so we will fund your on-going coaching development, which benefits both you and the club.

We’ll expect you to:

  • Inspire and develop players, coaches and team managers in the game and skills of Rugby (beginners and experienced players).
  • Plan training sessions (or support other coaches training sessions)
  • Advise team managers on how to select the strongest teams possible, whilst keeping within the ethos of Millwall Rugby Club.
  • Represent the club professionally at all time.
  • The Head Coach/Director of Rugby role will be expected to lead the coaching team and work closely with the club’s officers to plan continuous improvement of coaches and players, at training and on match days.
You will be accountable to the elected Club Management Committee (CMC) and will report on a day to day basis to the Men’s/Ladies’/Youth Chair as appropriate and to the Club Captain who has overall responsible for all playing matters.

Please apply by email to, submitting a completed RFU application form together with a covering letter, outlining why you’re suitable for the role and why it interests you.
