Emanuel School – Rowing Coach

Salary: £27,000 pa
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Rowing Coach to play a key role at Emanuel School Boat Club.

Working with the Director of Rowing and team of rowing coaches, you will work on building an effective and dynamic rowing environment for pupils. This will include assisting with the planning and coaching of rowing sessions and strength and conditioning sessions and assisting the other coaches at regattas and head races.

You will also need to take a proactive role in ensuring rowing equipment is packed up at the end of each session and be confident in carrying out minor repairs and equipment checks at the boat house in conjunction with the Boat House Manager.

Our facilities at the school and boat house are outstanding with an impressive fleet of boats and the School has a dedicated coaching team. There are currently plans to develop all sports facilities at Emanuel, including the boat house tank area into a performance gym for pupils. The school also has plans to develop its rowing boat fleet over a number of years.

Emanuel has a rich history in rowing with wins at the Schools Head of the River and Henley Royal Regatta. In recent years, boys and girls have medalled at National Schools and received sports scholarships to American rowing universities.

You must be available to work on Saturdays and be able to transport all pupils to sporting fixtures and be willing to escort pupils to and from the boat house via train on a daily basis.  The role will include working through school holidays and at weekends as required by the Director of Rowing.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience of coaching medal standard crews at a national level, including the National Schools Regatta. A proven track record as a coach for junior/school rowers, and the ability to safely operate a motor launch on the Tideway is also important. A specialist Sports and/or relevant British Rowing coaching qualification and ideally an RYA Powerboat qualification would be a significant advantage.
