Hi Guys (and girls, of course)

Please see below for a football job opportunity in Cornwall...

ARGYLE Community Trust is looking to recruit a sports tutor and support coach. The position is a dual role working with Argyle Community Trust focusing on our Post 16 Education provision and initiatives in Cornwall.

The position will be based in Redruth. However, at times, you may need to work outside of the area boundary dependent on the demands of the programmes.

As a registered charity, Argyle Community Trust works in close conjunction with Plymouth Argyle Football Club, reaching people across several sectors where sport has proven to be the ideal tool for creating lasting education and engagement with individuals.

The candidate will provide quality teaching and learning for vocational courses, including BTEC Level 2 & 3 sports programmes, primarily working on the Post 16 Football Scholarship programme. The role will require delivery on both the education and practical side of the course and will include regular liaison with parents and guardians of the students on the course, as well as the relevant departments within the Football Club.

The post holder will be responsible for the Post 16 Football Development Programme in Redruth and will be responsible for the recruitment of future students, attendance at training days and meetings set up by any partner organisations related to this scholarship programme. In addition to this, the lead staff member will also line manage the coaching team for this specific programme and co-ordinate the football programme.

There is also a requirement for the Lead Sport Tutor and Coach to have either qualified teaching status, be working towards this accreditation or be qualified to degree level in a sport-related theme or have relevant teaching experience.

The post is full time and is offered on a 12 month fixed-term contract

As we try and encourage more females to participate in our sport, disappointing (and illegal) that PAFC are only offering this position to "guys".  There are a lot of females who meet the qualifications for this position and should be encouraged to apply not excluded.  

Particularly disappointing this message comes from the "Head of Community". Guess Mr Lovell only represents the male half?

They might struggle to fill the post with a salary range of £18-21k for a full time management role. 

An NQT starts on £23k. An experienced BTEC tutor probably at least £25k ? 

The job spec also lists: curriculum design, recruitment and retention responsibilities as well as line managing a staff of coaches.

"Guys" can be used to describe a group of people of either .

In my book that's an insult to females. How the hell did we get to the stage when we greet both sexes as guys ! This is one of the things I hate about the age we live in now.

I note that ex-chairmans comment on "Guys and Gals" has been deleted, either by himself or an over enthusiastic moderator. The term Guys has indeed become generic, in relating to both (all) sexes since the aforementioned line was a catchphrase used by a well known, now thankfully deceased, D.J./paedophile!

I note that the ad has now been edited to read "Hi Guys (and Girls, of course)". I'm not sure if this compounds the error or not, how many women with the qualifications/experience required would appreciate being referred to as "Girls"?

Last para - good point Bruegel.

My seemingly offensive definition was taken from a Dictionary but I bow to the superior wisdom of my critics!

Heard a tv personality calling a female contestant 'mate' last night! That made me cringe a bit - but each to their own. 

I have to admit that I am guilty to using 'guys' as a collective noun to refer to a group of people. I haven't had any protests or complaints as yet...

I think it has become one of those terms that's meaning has changed slightly with the world we live in. 

I am sure that the poster meant no offence or exclusion to females by using the term. I think it was just an informal way of getting attention - looks like 'they' (male or female) certainly got that.
