Staff Opportunities
Different Ways to Work with Eurotech

International Based Coaches
Under the direction of a Eurotech® National Coaching Director, Associate Director or designated Camp Director, the Eurotech® Staff Coach has the responsibility for organizing, leading and teaching all training sessions as well as creating a first class environment for campers with their safety and fun as a first priority. The Eurotech® Staff Coach will provide leadership on the field as well as off the field. The Eurotech® Staff Coach is responsible for controlling their assigned teaching group in addition to setting expectations and consequences for campers while creating a positive learning environment. In addition, the Eurotech® Staff Coach will be responsible for providing a written evaluation for each player’s performance at the end of each week. Summer Camp Coaches travel to the USA the first week in July and participate in a 4-week cultural exchange program, typically returning to the United Kingdom or Europe mid-August. International coaches always have the option to stay in the country to travel or visit friends and family within the provided work visa departure dates.      

U.S. Based Coaches
As soccer has grown significantly within the U.S. over the past decade, Eurotech® has continually searched for high quality American coaches as well as international coaches already living and working in the U.S. for both its summer work program as well as full-time positions in the U.S. Each year an increasing number of U.S. based staff are recruited to work with Eurotech® programs. Former professional players, club directors and college coaches make up the majority of the U.S. based staff, but anyone with a proven ability to coach, teach and play the game can apply. Please note that any international players or coaches who are already living and/or working in the U.S. will be considered independent contractors and receive a 1099 form at the end of the summer program for tax purposes and will be classed as "U.S. Coaches".

Working with Eurotech® can provide a great opportunity for U.S. coaches to travel and work in different parts of the country as well as meeting, working and learning from other professional coaches from all over the United Kingdom and Europe.
