The appointment of Mr Jones by Goldman Sachs comes just a week after the 55-year-old Australian was selected as the next head coach of England — a team in need of resuscitation after failing to progress from the group stages of the same tournament.
The roles at both Goldman and England, he said, represented “a once in a lifetime opportunity”.
The departure of Mr Jones to England will leave Japan without his expertise as it prepares to host the 2019 Rugby World Cup — an event whose arrangements have been thrown into confusion by a political spat over the design and finances of Japan’s new national stadium.
