We seek to appoint a Director of Rugby who will lead, manage and deliver Uppingham’s rugby programme and play a central role in the development of rugby at the School; guiding and supporting our rugby teams and coaching staff.

Rugby is a hugely popular sport at Uppingham. Many pupils play for enjoyment but want to be as proficient in the game as they can be. Others aspire to play rugby at the highest level. All of them want to enjoy playing the sport.

You will ensure that players of all abilities are able to reach their potential, whether that is facilitating opportunities for aspirational players whose talents can take them to county, regional or national level, or enabling a player to advance within our own team structure.

If you are an outstanding and inspirational coach who ideally has experience of playing or coaching rugby at the highest level, we would be delighted to hear from you. A strong (sport) degree is desirable and exemplary coaching qualifications are necessary.
