Thank you for your interest in working with us. Current Vacancies:

We’re looking for an experienced adult multi-sports and self defence coach for our OUTSIDERS UNITED Sports Programme due to start in January 2022. 

OUTSIDERS UNITED – Self Defence / Sports Coach 

Start date: January 2022

Ends: September 2022

Part time: £25p/h

Based at our LGBTIQ+ Centre in Bankside and Castlehaven Community Centre in Camden.

Some shelter guests over winter 2019/20 were very into sports and most others rolled their eyes. Most guests participated in self defence classes at our LGBTIQ+ Centre but not many people from the wider community. 

We started talking about what we could do to get more people from our house into sports and more people from the community into self defence. We held a focus group at Cafe Queero followed by a survey called ‘Outsiders United’. Within a day we had over 100 LGBTIQ+ people respond with a lot of feelings – the overall vibe was Fuck P.E..

Our survey told us that LGBTIQ+ people do not feel that they can access self defence classes and sports – particularly team sports – due to poverty, prejudice, gender binary sports stuff and past trauma of bullying from school.

You will work alongside a member of our team and a number of volunteers to inspire our community to get involved in low pressure and non-competitive classes that make them feel safe and are fun. Classes will be based at our LGBTIQ+ Centre in Borough, Bankside. and on the Sports Pitches at our partner community centre Castlehaven Community Centre in Camden.

If you are up for doing sports a bit differently and have the right qualifications and experience please send your CV with a covering letter to

Deadline 10th December 9pm.
