Hockey Coaches

The role

Commencing in July, our upcoming Hockey season is looking to build on the success and growth of the Pymble program, and with this brings the need for more coaching support for our students.

With a passion for field Hockey and the drive to contribute to Pymble’s positive and professional coaching culture, you will have experience either in playing yourself or coaching, and ready to step into a team of proactive and supportive likeminded individuals.

You will have availability commencing from July and available to work casually during our school term times (generally two training sessions per week), and on Saturdays, attending various locations for matches. With an emphasis on technique, you will not only instruct our players on the rules and regulations of Hockey, but you will also model sport-like behaviour and determine strategies to help achieve the highest results.

Our kind of team member

You will display the following skills and capabilities:

  • A passion for Hockey and working with young people.
  • An understanding of, or experience with programs within schools would be highly advantageous.
  • Be a driven and passionate contributor to the team’s success.
  • Technically savvy with a competence in using the MS Suite and Google applications.
  • Excellent communication and relationship management abilities.
  • Demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement.

Your kind of workplace

Pymble people are at the heart of what the College offers its students. That’s why every teacher, operational and co-curricular staff member is valued for being the person they are, for the quality of their work, for their diverse contribution and for their wins – big and small. We express our appreciation in many ways, including through recognition programs, story sharing, celebrations, feedback and competitive remuneration.

We treasure our caring, collegiate community, which Pymble people often refer to as the ‘Pymble family’. We also appreciate that our family is not the only one in the lives of Pymble people, so we ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to supporting work-life balance, providing family benefits and contributing to community connections.

Your kind of benefits

We offer a range of benefits, including:

  • mentoring groups and professional development support
  • access to our Aquatic and Fitness Centre, with free Yoga and Pilates classes
  • daily morning tea and onsite cafes
  • discounted school fees (where applicable)
  • a dedicated Staff Wellbeing team and regular social events, and
  • easy access with close public transport and onsite or nearby (street) parking.

We also provide a wide range of opportunities for Pymble people to grow personally and professionally, including through growth strategies, training and professional development, career progression, access to technology and resources, and health and wellbeing opportunities.
