You will have a minimum of two years’ experience in coaching a rowing club or squad. You will be the sort of person that thinks like a team player, has the desire to open-up access to rowing and is not afraid to break away from the traditional way of doing things.

You will be able to work on your own initiative, as well as displaying strong team working skills.
