Cricket Scotland invites applications for the role of Men’s National Team Assistant Coach. The deadline is Sunday 2nd June 2019.
The future of Scottish Cricket is incredibly bright following the recent progress of ourmen’s and women’s national teams. In particular, our men have beaten five different Full Members in the last two years. Our ODI victory over world number one England in June 2018 sent shockwaves through the sport. The team also came very close to qualifying for the 2019 World Cup and is currently ranked 12 in T20 and 13 in ODI cricket.
This success has resulted in increased support for our teams both at home and overseas and a parallel increase in interest from our competitors. Cricket Scotland now seeks a full-time Men’s National Team Assistant Coach. The position is headquartered in Edinburgh, and the nature of the role demands a national brief throughout Scotland and significant time travelling overseas.
The Scotland Men’s National Team, powered by a high-quality Performance Pathway Programme, competes in the ICC T20 and 50-over World Cups and their respective qualifying events. The prospective programme for the next three years includes 36 ODIs in the newly-established Cricket World Cup League 2 – our pathway to qualification for both the 2023 Cricket World Cup in India and the next cycle of Cricket World Cup Super League – as well as bilateral and triangular competition with Full and Associate Members, and two T20 World Cups.
The Assistant Coach will work with the Head Coach in respect of player development of both the national and A team squads. This will include developing a world class, inspiring and impactful learning environment for the players, monitoring player progress, and leading on one or more specific skill set areas.
The Assistant Coach will work with the Head Coach and the HP Manager to develop a training and preparation schedule to optimize the team’s chances of achieving its goals, and develop individual development plans for the players.
