British Rowing is looking for a dynamic individual to join our expanding team supporting the GB Beach Sprint programme.

We are looking for an individual who has the skills and experience to provide ‘beach-side’ first aid support, as well as delivery of physiotherapy services at targeted training days/camps, selection trials and competitions at selected days through the year.

About You

You should be an enthusiastic individual, who enjoys working as part of a team and can use your technical skills and experiences to help develop the GB Beach Sprint team programme. You will be a qualified physiotherapist, with experience of working in a performance sport environment including a role as a first responder for acute trauma management, for example pitch side first aid-cover in a team sport.

Our Offer

This is a part time role, covering 30 days per year, on agreed dates to cover selected training days/camps, selection trials and competitions.
