The Otago Cricket Association is seeking a motivated and driven high performing cricket coach for the role of Otago Volts Team Head Coach.

The purpose of the role is to achieve the best possible performance from the Otago Volts in the three national domestic competitions (Plunket Shield, HRV Twenty20 and Ford Trophy) and by doing so, contribute players to the National team. The side has had success in recent years and is looking for someone to continue this and help the team fulfil their potential to become the premier domestic cricket team in New Zealand.

The Team Coach will be responsible for development of team programmes for the season including plans for preparation and playing. Getting the best out of players and the team is paramount and the successful candidate will need to demonstrate previous success in developing elite players and making full use of analysis technology and other current tools of a working high performance environment.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate in talent identification and refining of high performance pathways from age group level through to First Class Cricket.
Otago Cricket covers the area that stretches from Bluff in Southland through to Oamaru in North Otago; an area that includes metropolitan areas such as Dunedin and Invercargill, the Lakes District of Queenstown and Wanaka and the Central Otago centres of Cromwell, Alexandra and Clyde.

Based in our head office in Dunedin and working with the High Performance Manager and Volts support personnel, the Team Coach will be responsible for programmes that encourage the smooth transition of players into domestic cricket, so that they can perform and continue to develop their game. While previous success at First Class level and a Level 3 coaching qualification are preferable, the successful applicant will firstly demonstrate the ability and temperament to fit the Otago environment.

For a full job description or a confidential discussion, please contact CEO Ross Dykes ( or 027-5763-782). To apply, please send your covering letter and resume to by 4.00pm, Monday 5 May.
