Assistant Director of Sport (Main School)

Assistant Director of Sport (Main School)

Permanent, Full-Time

Closing Date: 9:00am 29 January 2022

Haileybury is an outstanding British independent co-educational boarding school, offering modern boarding and day provision for 900 boys and girls aged 11-18.  Established in 1862, we are situated on a glorious and historic 500-acre campus in Hertfordshire, just 20 miles north of London.

The Assistant Director of Sport (Main School) will lead the High Performance Programme (HPP – the programme for the top sportsmen & women in Haileybury). ADoS(MS) will oversee HPP pupils’ progress over their Haileybury career aiming to enable them to meet their individual ambitions. The role will involve ensuring the quality and tailored nature of the HPP from a technical and S&C perspective whilst also developing the enrichment programme (psychology, nutrition, etc.). ADoS(MS) will also oversee the provision for a range of participation sports; enhance the use of video analysis in focus sports; and develop the use of Haileybury Sports’ social media & websites.

ADoS(MS) would also offer a specialism in hockey, netball or rugby, and would also take on the role of assistant director in their specialist sport, in order to help drive forward further the programme of one of these key focus sports. This will include developing staff and leading 1:1/small group sessions throughout the year, where there is the chance to work with current and future national level players.

The nature of a 24hr a day, 7 days per week boarding school requires staff to work flexibly and as the School is used by pupils at weekends, which are also the time most parents visit the School, there may be a requirement for the job holder to work early mornings, evenings and weekends.
