'Relieving The Stress of Sports Hires'

Having worked with schools over the past 7 years to enhance their PE and Sports provision with our high-quality part-time coaches, Lions Sports Academy are now working with schools to find the best full-time coaches to help relieve the stress of recruitment teams.

Earlier this year, we brought on a specialist recruiter to help us become the go-to place for full-time coaches, and we believe our industry-leading onboarding and managing process (see below) separates us from traditional recruitment agencies.

We take great care to understand the vacancy in its entirety, and work tirelessly to screen and vet potential applicants to ensure they are a perfect fit. This approach is why we have a 0% placement dropout rate.

Our Guarantees

At Lions Sports Academy, we stand firmly behind the quality of our services, which is why we proudly offer an extensive 8-week performance guarantee for all candidates introduced by us.

Should any candidate find themselves in a situation where their employment is terminated or they choose to resign within the guarantee period, we have structured a fair refund policy to ensure satisfaction. Here's how it works:

During the first week of the guarantee period, clients are eligible for a substantial 75% refund of the recruitment fee.

For weeks 2-4, a 50% refund is available.

For weeks 5-8 a 25% refund is available.

After the initial 8 weeks, refunds are no longer offered. We consider this timeframe to serve as a comprehensive probationary period, allowing both parties ample opportunity to address any concerns or issues that may arise.

How do we ensure the candidate is a good fit?

At Lions, we take pride in our rigorous training and vetting process. We believe in equipping our candidates with the necessary skills, qualifications and experiences to deliver exceptional coaching services. Here's an overview of our approach:

  • Grad/Gap Training - We offer Comprehensive training courses for Gap Students/University Graduates, designed to bridge the gap between academic studies and practical coaching. These courses provide hands-on experience, mentorship and exposure to real-world scenarios, ensuring that our candidates are well prepared to excel in their roles.
  • Level 2 Coaching Qualification - through our connections with 1st4sport, we provide our coaches with the opportunity to pursue a Level 2 coaching qualification. This is nationally recognised and requires a high level of proficiency and expertise.
  • Upskilling - Diversifying skill sets is essential in todays dynamic coaching landscape. That's why we encourage our candidates to explore and upskill in other sports beyond their primary expertise. Our coaches gain exposure to a wide range of sports, enabling them to adapt their coaching methodologies and techniques effectively.
