GEMS Nairobi is also looking for candidates that will support the long term development of the swimmer as a person first and recognises them as an athlete that has limitless potential when equipped with the right tools and support throughout the development processes.

Job expectations:

  • Design, organise and implement a training and performance culture that leads to long-term performance success.
  • Lead diverse groups of swimmers towards their path of excellence
  • Fully participate in the dry side of meet logistics and planning, including a working knowledge of ‘Hytek – Team Manager and Meet Manager’
