Gippsland Grammar is an Anglican co-educational Independent school in regional Victoria, Australia. Our well established School Rowing program has enjoyed great success with regular appearances and medal success at major Victorian State Championships and Australian National Championships.
We are seeking three, final year, University students (undergraduate or postgraduate) to add significant value to the School’s Rowing program as part of a graduate gap year opportunity available under a Temporary Activity Visa. The opportunities we have on offer are rewarding, allowing involvement in the continued development of an established culture in the pursuit of excellence and high performance, with this extending beyond time spent at Gippsland Grammar.
We are interested to hear from individuals who believe they can function as part of a coaching team to add significant value to the Rowing program, beyond their skills on the water as a coach.
Degree subject, strengths and interests will be taken into consideration when allocating an area of responsibility and a crew or squad. The secondary duties will be allocated based on area of expertise.
The School seeks expressions of interest from individuals that hold:
- A willingness to be involved in the life of Rowing in an Australian school
- University level education
- An ability to engage and maintain professional relationships with members of the School community
- Experience in sculling or coxing
- Experience in coaching in a Rowing program (desirable but not essential)
- A team work ethic and excellent organisational skills
- Eligibility to obtain a Temporary Activity Visa
Those appointed will be required at the School from approximately September 2020 until Thursday 1 April 2021. This opportunity is available through a Temporary Activity Visa (sub class 408 Special Program category), under which Gippsland Grammar sponsors visa applicants. The visa application is the responsibility of the appointee and further details can be found via:
Department of Home Affairs 408 visa
Under this visa individuals are deemed to be unpaid volunteers, therefore Gippsland Grammar provides a small living allowance and accommodation which includes internet and utility bills.
Gippsland Grammar is committed to providing a child safe environment. Volunteers at the school must hold a current Working With Children check, this may be applied for upon arrival in Australia.
Interviews will involve an initial video interview, followed by a Skype or telephone shortly thereafter. Final offers will be made by mid-June to allow at least one month to secure a visa and flights. Appointees will be financially responsible for visa charges, flights and travel insurance.
Further information can be provided by contacting the Director of Rowing, Nick Bartlett (firstname.lastname@example.org).
