Closing Date: 8 August 2021
The post of Head of AD/S&C involves working approximately 40+ hours per week, with times of working to be agreed with the Director of Sport. There will be a degree of flexibility and the job holder will be required for sessions outside of term time, as well as preseason training and tours within the UK and overseas.
The role will involve delivering Strength and Conditioning services to Haileybury athletes on an individual, small group and team basis and managing a department of two. The age of pupils will be predominantly 13+ and 6th Form, and will include pupils performing at a national level. You will be working to improve performance and prevent injury across the Haileybury sporting programme, and predominantly within the four focus sports of rugby, netball, hockey and cricket.

The programme is well established and has an enviable reputation and is integral to the success of Haileybury Sport over recent years, during which time the rugby and cricket teams have been consistently ranked in the top 10 in the country and hockey and netball squads have both won national titles.
