The Portsmouth Grammar School is a leading co-educational school located in the historic heart of Portsmouth. The school is an IB World School and offers the IB Diploma alongside A Level.
The school is seeking to appoint a 1st XI Cricket Coach from April 2019.
The successful applicant will join the PE & Games Department and report to the Head of Cricket and the Director of Sport.
The successful candidate will be appointed based on their ability and desire to coach the 1st XI, a role which will take in the region of ten hours a week during the Summer Term, including and dependent on fixtures.
As 1st XI coach, there will be a commitment of a minimum of 10 hours during the Summer Term and your exact hours and pattern of work will be confirmed by the Director of Sport. The successful candidate will typically coach as minimum of Sixth Form Games on Wednesday afternoons, at one after school training session and a Saturday fixture on weekends throughout the Summer Term.
For a candidate with a desire to have a broader impact, there is the potential to coach more hours during the week, during the Summer Term, up to a total of thirty hours a week. These additional hours are not guaranteed and will be at the request of the Director of Sport, depending on the need of the school. These additional sessions will include contact time with other year groups and teams. Fixtures take place at our off-site playing fields in Hilsea, Portsmouth and across the region at other schools on our fixtures list.
There will be an expectation that during the Autumn and Spring Terms when Cricket is not a main sport the successful candidate will be able to offer pre-season and Winter net sessions and the number of coaching hours available will vary and cannot be guaranteed. For suitably qualified applicants there will also be potential for further involvement in other school sports such as rugby and hockey.
The closing date for applications is 18 January and interviews will take place on Thursday 24 January.
PGS is committed to safeguarding children and the successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure DBS check.
