Tottenham Hotspur are looking to hire a new first team strength and conditioning coach to help work on the fitness and heatlh of Nuno Espirito Santo’s players.
At Wolves, the Portuguese was known to have a very large backroom staff. However, when he joined Tottenham he arrived with just three coaches.
They were assistant head coach Ian Cathro, goalkeeping coach Rui Barbosa and fitness coach Antonio Dias.
Espirito Santo is known for the high level of fitness of his teams and the double sessions he puts on most days throughout pre-season.
Now, amid a summer of change among the staff at Tottenham, the club have advertised for a new first team strength and conditioning coach to help out the team.
The advert for the new coach, which can be found here, makes it clear what their role will entail as they work with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min & Co.
“The successful applicant will be responsible for the delivery of an industry leading strength and conditioning program for all first team players,” it reads.
“Working alongside the first team sports science department, the role requires the design and delivery of all pre-training and post-training gym-based sessions, applying scientific principles to aid in enhancing physical performance and athletic development.
“In addition to their primary role of overseeing the strength and conditioning program, the successful applicant will assist in the design and delivery of strength and conditioning programs for players returning from injury, contribute to the research and development of the sports science and medical department through attendance and delivery of CPD, and providing match day sports science support as required.
“As a result, the role requires an individual who is able to perform such hours as necessary to complete their roles and responsibilities, which will require travel and the working of unsociable hours including weekends and bank holidays.”
The role comes with plenty of experience and qualifications required and the closing date for applications is on August 11.
The club is also looking for a ‘football secretary’ for maternity cover.
The role being advertised states that “the Club is seeking a Football Secretary for 12 months to ensure utmost governance and proactive compliance of governing body rules and regulations across its First Team and Academy.
“The Football Secretary will also play a vital role in the transfer window, complying with UKBA immigration rules and facilitating player transfers.”
Among the duties the role includes are “supporting the negotiation and completion of contracts and agreements relating to the transfer, loan and registration of professional players and scholars, plus intermediaries contracts” as well as “coordinating player/manager disciplinary hearings and First Team fines, suspensions and appeals processes”.
The football secretary will also “liaise with relevant football associations with regard to international call-ups” among other duties.
The wide-ranging role, which is advertised here, has a closing date of August 9.
