She is an intelligent girl having passed her Maths GCSE's when she was 12 years old, 4 years earlier than normal.
Looking to travel approximately 2 weeks per month to Tennis Europe and/or ITF Junior tournaments. Initially the tournaments might be further away from Europe to gain the ITF ranking points. The candidate should be able to hit to a very good level and will be responsible for flying and staying with the player for around 2 weeks per month at a stretch. The candidate will be responsible for all tennis related activities and strategies, match preparation, physical training, hitting, regular feeddback to player and parent, managing all financial aspects within a budget etc.
Ideally, someone who has played ITF/WTA on a good international level would be preferable.
We are looking for someone who can take this as a long term opportunity and as a project. The INITIAL salary would be approximately £100 per day (negotiable) plus all expenses like travel, food, excursions etc. In future, we can also look at a bonus structure and increase in the daily rate dependent on the players results at tournaments and the coach-player relationship.
