Starting late August 2018 until July 2019
If you have a passion for sport, and are keen to experience life working at a busy co-education boarding school then becoming a Graduate Assistant at Marlborough College could be for you. The current vacancy is for someone whose first sport is likely to be rugby or hockey. An ability to also assist with the coaching of other sports is an advantage. As well as coaching sport in the afternoon and on match days, you will be a key member of the Physical Education Department, and will take a leading role in some aspects of lessons.
Marlborough’s vibrant community of Graduate Assistants are an invaluable part of College life; supporting pupils with activities beyond the classroom. A key element of this rewarding opportunity is to encourage and mentor pupils on and off campus ensuring that their health, safety and welfare are protected.
A Graduate (or recognised alternative) with either a specialism directly relevant to sport/physical education or who have played sport to a high standard, you will be energetic, enthusiastic, have a natural rapport with young people as well as a genuine interest in, and commitment to, their care and development.
Joining us for an academic year, you will be immersed in the life of a busy boarding school with a salary package that includes accommodation and all meals during term-time, but more importantly offers a fantastic opportunity and fulfilling experience.
Further information about the role may be obtained by email from the Director of Sport firstname.lastname@example.org or the Head of PE email@example.com
