    To whom it may concern, I saw the job advertisment on the indeed website. It had appealed to me instantaneously. I would be very interested in a part time coaching role, as it would work perfectly for me around the degree i am currently studying in rugby coaching. I am also working towards my level 2 award, hold a first aid level 2 and have a very hard working attitudw to coaching sports to young particpants who love playing sport.
