Rowing Coach/Administrator/Assistant Boatperson

Closing Date:

The School has a long-established national reputation for rowing, and has a thriving Boat Club: approximately 100 boys and 50 girls row and scull from J14 upwards. Pupils are encouraged to compete in a range of different types of boats and to compete to the highest level of school and youth international rowing. This post involves three distinct roles: taking a load coaching role for rowing/sculling; assisting the Master in charge of Rowing with Boat Club administration and assisting the Head Boatman in all aspects of the running and maintenance of the boathouse, grounds, coaching launches and fleet of racing boats. Previously this has been a developmental position and previous post holders have moved to take on significant roles in other clubs. It is likely that the selected candidate will have ambitions to follow a similar pathway but will already have acquired a breadth of experience to undertake a leadership role within the coaching team.

If you have experience in both sculling and sweep oared boats, proven success as a rowing coach working with juniors and excellent organisational and administrative skills we would welcome your application. Success as an athlete or coach at national or international level is desirable but not essential.
