The school is seeking to appoint an experienced Rowing Coach to support its vibrant and growing rowing programme. Working with the Head of Rowing, the post holder will coach and teach rowing to girls of varying ability while also providing strength & conditioning and weight training to both rowers and other students. The coach will assist with managing specific year groups and/or boats into major competitions, helping with the day-to-day administration of crew line-ups and the organisation surrounding events and trips.
Applicants will have a sound technical knowledge of the rowing stroke and experience in coaching/teaching across all ability levels. They must be able to drive a launch confidently and have a good understanding of the navigational rules; a powerboat 2 licence and familiarity with the Tideway would be an advantage, along with a minibus (D1) licence and experience of towing. Experience of rowing and coaching at medal winning standard is highly desirable.
The successful candidate will join a hard-working and thriving department and must be able to engage in the overall development of PE as well as contribute ideas and experience to the rowing programme. The school places great importance on the pastoral care of its pupils and most full-time teaching and coaching staff therefore also fulfil the role of tutors.
Please submit your completed application form, including a short supporting statement and full CV by noon on the specified closing date.
