Graduate Assistant Swimming Coach
Commencing August 2021
Marlborough College Malaysia opened in 2012 and is a British day and boarding school for pupils aged 3-18 years. We live and work in a safe and spacious 90-acre campus in southern Malaysia, reminiscent of the generous grounds and playing fields of Marlborough College in the UK. Guided by our principles of compassion, companionship and conversation, Marlborough College Malaysia gives its boys and girls the space, inspiration and courage to explore their own potential, the wonders of our world and their responsibilities to it and to each other.
The College is arranged in a Prep School (3-13) and a Senior School (14-18) and it currently has 960 pupils, around 530 of whom are in the Prep and 140 of whom are in the Sixth Form. Pupils from the age of nine may choose to board and approximately a third of those who are eligible do so, with almost half of the Senior School and most of the Sixth Form boarding.
While very British in ethos and with a Common Room largely drawn from some of the UK’s leading schools, the College is also truly international, celebrating diversity and a global outlook with children representing over 45 nationalities. Around half of our pupils are from expatriate families.
The Master is looking for a highly motivated recent graduate who is interested in gaining swimming coaching experience within a prestigious school setting. The role will involve assisting with Swimming lessons, training and competitions, in addition to some general activities and attachment to a boarding house, which are shared with trained and experienced teams of Marlborough staff and will provide great opportunities for candidates to build skills, confidence and networks.
While the ideal Graduate Assistant, like all Marlborough staff, will have wide interests in sport and academia and be eager to learn and experience new skills, we particularly welcome applications who have experience in coaching swimming, who have lifesaving qualifications and, ideally, who have a swim coach award.
In addition to swimming, the College provides a rich range of sporting options for pupils and staff which include Hockey, Rugby, Touch Rugby, Football, Netball, Basketball, Cricket, Athletics, Swimming, Badminton, Golf, and Strength and Conditioning in a state of the art fitness suite.
Graduate Assistants will be employed for the whole of the academic year and will benefit from teachers’ holidays and exeats. This is a fixed-term position until July 2022 and successful applicants will need to be available for induction and orientation from mid-August 2021.
