Two roles have become available providing a unique opportunity for highly motivated swimming coaches to drive forward the development of swimming in East Lothian.

The roles can be combined into a full-time role or candidates can apply for either.

East Lothian Swim Team (ELST) has 2 professional coaches responsible for delivering a performance programme for the best athletes taken from the three competitive East Lothian clubs: Haddington, Musselburgh and Tranent.

This integrated approach has, in recent years, produced multiple medallists at district, national and age group championships as well as the Paralympics and Youth Commonwealth Games. Swimmers have secured Scottish records, represented Scotland and Great Britain most recently at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Bruce Halloran’s appointment as ELST Head Coach has created two coaching vacancies - ELST Junior Age Group Coach and Tranent Head Coach.

We are now looking for applications from ambitious coaches with the talent and motivation to excel in these roles.

You will need to be a highly motivated, reliable and enthusiastic individual with experience of coaching at a competitive level. You will preferably hold a UKCC Level 2 coaching qualification (or equivalent).

You will also have excellent communication skills and the ability to motivate and get the best from club and performance swimmers.

You can apply for both roles combined or for either role on its own. For further information on these role(s), please contact Stephen Lissaman at
