Why KRU re-advertised Sevens job
By Eric Njiru | Tue 30 Jun, 2020 16:04

Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) has re-advertised the position of Kenya Sevens head coach but this time round open to all nationals. 

Early this month KRU announced the departure of New Zealander Paul Feeney and immediately put out an advertisement asking only Kenyans to apply. Raga House understands only three Kenyans applied while nine foreigners had also expressed interest despite the advert being open only to Kenyans. 

The Rugby Union is now looking for an individual from any country with a minimum of 3 years of experience as a Head Coach in a division one club /Elite Squad and a minimum World Rugby Level 2 coaching certification in either sevens or fifteens rugby.

The overall responsibility will be coaching the Sevens Squad and the management of a performance program to ensure that the selected players are best equipped to compete and perform in the International Assignments as defined by the KRU. 

All applications must be submitted no later than 10th July 2020 and addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Kenya Rugby Union at ceo@kru.co.ke. Those who had applied as per the last advertisement need not reapply and will still be considered for the post by KRU.

 Applicants should attach all World Rugby Certifications. They must also provide a detailed Curriculum Vitae with a well-articulated coaching philosophy.
