Great Britian Hockey is hiring!

Danny Kerry and Susie Townsend share a joke after the win over Spain

England Hockey is recruiting to the position of GB Development Programme Head Coach. A strategic priority in the Tokyo 2020 cycle is to make a step-change in the breadth and depth of players feeding senior programmes (develop two players, per year with the potential to be world-leading). 

In 2017, the programme that sits just below the senior programmes will be developing into a full Great Britain programme, with the aim of maximising the potential of future world-leading players and delivering consistent and systemic medal winning performance. Reporting to the Head of Great Britain Development Programme, the Head Coach will be responsible for planning, implementing and having a transformational impact on player development within the GB Development Programme (and England under-21 programme). 

This role will spend approximately one day per week supporting delivery of the England and Great Britain senior programme, and, support the senior women’s programme at major international tournaments (such as World Cup and Olympic Games). 
The priorities for the role are:
 • Develop two players per year who have the potential to be world-leading at senior international level. 
• Provide exceptional leadership through planning, implementing and leading a world-leading development programme. 
• Lead the delivery of a high performance culture that underpins success and exceptional player development. 
• Support the senior women’s Head Coach with on-pitch delivery (demonstrating a ‘super-strength’) that will add significant value to the senior women’s programme.
