Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation, located in rural Berkshire in a stunning 400 acre campus. We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Head of Girld Sport Development to join our Sports Department.

You will join on a Term Time plus (37 weeks), permanent basis and in return we will offer you a competitive salary and benefits package which includes a free lunch whilst on duty, subsidised membership to the Wellington Health & Fitness Club, contribution to Wellington’s personal pension scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, enhanced Maternity / Paternity scheme, cycle to work scheme, free parking and access to a health cash plan.

About the role:

At Wellington our vision for our sports programme is that all pupils should have the opportunity to participate in a sports programme appropriate to their ambitions and aspirations.

We want pupils to participate in sport for life, in addition to being challenged and supported where appropriate to perform to their highest capacity possible. We aim to work with each and every pupil in such a way which enables them to become the best version of themselves which they can be.

We believe sport has the capacity to support the development of life skills, and thus supports the college’s aims of developing a holistic model of education.  This vision should be underpinned by pupils and staff behaving in line with the College’s core values: Courage, Integrity, Respect, Kindness and Responsibility.  Overall, we want Wellington College to be universally recognised as the leading co-educational boarding and day school for sport in the UK and one of the best in the world.

The successful candidate is to be the Head of Girls Sport Development and to be responsible for supporting existing Heads of Sport and leading on key areas of internal management and delivering of the College’s Girls sport programme.  This role forms part of a strategic focus on supporting and raising the profile of the College’s Girls sport provision.

Key responsibilities:

  • To work with relevant Heads of Sport on the overall strategy for girls sport and to assist and in some areas lead the delivery of internal coaching both in terms of participation and performance, with a particular focus on Hockey, Netball, Cricket, Football and Rugby (must be available in timetabled sport times, on Mon, Tues and Thurs afternoons – and likely most Saturday afternoons, although some flexibility may be possible).
  • Coach across a variety of Girls sports and where relevant run specialist sessions.
  • Be the point of contact for all matters relating to specific Girls sport provision, such as Prep School liaison work, internal and external Girls sport projects, such as show case fixtures and women in sport lecture/seminar delivery to sports scholars.
  • Be both a lead coach in Girls sport but also assist with coaching and officiating CPD in Girls sport and ensure this is aligned with the College aims and Vision for Sport – as such it may not be necessary to coach a given team on a match day.
  • Assist with providing weekly coaching plans/resources, leading sessions, masterclasses, coach observations and running workshops.
  • Work with relevant Head of Sport to ensure the girls’ sports meet the health and safety/risk assessment requirements set by the college and external National Governing Bodies.
  • Actively safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
  • Promote the recruitment of aspirational athletes through regular visits to feeder schools, running on site masterclass sessions and events, including festivals and tournaments.
  • Day to day administration of specific Girls sports related matters – e.g. SOCS.
  • Where required planning and prepare for regular training sessions, meets/fixtures and trips/tours, including calendaring and logistical arrangements e.g. grounds, transport, catering, domestics etc.
  • Provide reports to the Director of Sport on Girls sport.
  • Seek out new and inspirational ways to continue supporting and raising the profile of Girls sport.
  • Work closely with our US Universities specialists to support female athletes on the US University and sports scholarship application process
  • Adhere to and promote all College policies and procedures.

So, if you are committed to contributing towards the College community, think you’ve got what it takes to perform exceptionally in this role and would like to join our team, please apply now.
