This paper provides S&C coaches with an insight into the minimal requirements currently needed to gain employment and progress to more senior positions. Over 50 job descriptions for paid work were reviewed, with 37% asking for one to two years’ experience and the same amount not stating a minimum requirement, thus generating some uncertainty around the practical experience employers seek. Conversely, from an academic point of view, it was highlighted that a bachelor’s degree (BSc/BA) (73%) and an NSCA CSCS (45%) or UKSCA ASCC (24%) certification was deemed as essential for most roles. This paper gives new and existing S&C coaches an overview of the basic minimal standards that employers generally require, and we hope this will help coaches to align their resumé and development in line with these requirements.
