1863 Club – Part-Time Coach

The 1863 Club are seeking to recruit an additional part-time coach to assist our existing team. The role is to help with the coaching of our growing junior club across all squads.

Over the last few years, the club has developed into a progressive programme catering to an inclusive yet competitive ethos supporting and giving opportunities for boys between J14-J18 and girls from J17-J18. We are based in Chiswick, London.

We are seeking a coach to help develop juniors alongside cohesively working with our existing team under the direction of our Head of Rowing and Co-Captains. There is flexibility with exact hours depending on the candidate, but this would typically cover 1-2 sessions during the week (afternoons or mornings before school hours) and sessions on a weekend (essential). Other areas the role scope covers:

  • Delivering water-based coaching to juniors
  • Potentially running land-based fitness sessions before or after school (depending on experience and qualifications)
  • Attending events where needed (internal fixtures, external heads/regattas etc,.)

We encourage candidates who have experience working with junior age rowers or an experienced graduate that may be looking for their first steps into coaching. Hence a British Rowing Level 2 coaching award and RYA Powerboat 2 are desirable but those without we will consider if they work to complete over the course of the next few months. We may support candidates with these qualifications depending on the person.

The club pay competitive hourly rates and there is scope to take responsibility for group squads depending on the person.

To apply or discuss the role please contact or email your CV/coaching experience to Co-Captain Sean Simone at [email protected].

The club is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all coaches and staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to this post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service. Applicants must have the existing right to work in the UK.

Application Dates: From Tuesday 24th January 2023 to Sunday 19th February 2023
