Talent and Pathways Manager

The Talent and Pathways Manager, reporting to the General Manager Performance, will play a crucial role in effectively implementing our performance programmes and overseeing the development of our aspiring young male and female pathway players (and coaches) through to Otago A, Otago Volts and Otago Sparks. The Talent and Pathways Manager will work with the community team to identify talent across our region and ensure that this talent is provided the relevant opportunities to learn, grow and thrive. The Talent and Pathways Manager will have excellent experience working across the following areas: tactical and technical coaching, leadership, effective team training, in-depth analysis, planning, talent identification, player development and selection. All Otago performance coaches and staff are expected to work across programmes, and alongside other Otago Cricket performance coaches, wherever opportunities and planning makes this practical, including both Otago Volts and Otago Sparks teams. This is an important component in delivering an outstanding performance programme in Otago. Otago Cricket represents a unique and diverse region comprised of four contributing districts. We set out to nurture and develop our talented athletes within an environment that retains and attracts high quality players through offering both challenge and opportunities to grow wherever they reside. Building relationships with our districts is a key component of the role. This is an outstanding opportunity to apply your coaching experience, knowledge and skills in both a pathways environment and a high-performance environment. Ideally the Talent and Pathways Manager will have experience working in domestic high-performance environments.
