As the leading, fully co-educational independent school in London, we have established a strong rowing programme across girls’ and boys’ events in both sculling and sweep disciplines, having achieved extensive success on the National stage.

We are now seeking to appoint a Part-Time Rowing Coach to start this September, coaching 20 hours per week. The successful candidate will be highly motivated, passionate and eager to build on the recent accomplishments of the school boat club that places pastoral support at the centre of its coaching. Experience of developing young athletes within a school programme progressing to Junior GB selection will be highly desirable.

The role will demand excellent planning, communication and administrative skills, with an ability to adapt your coaching style to the individual, think ambitiously and work collaboratively and flexibly within a strong team environment.

Good judgement and sound Tideway knowledge will be essential, as will creativity in managing pupils of varying abilities in changeable conditions. A high level of responsibility will be given to implementing the programme and ensuring the consistent development of pupils from junior to senior level. Close communication will need to be established and maintained with sports, academics and the school pastoral team.

RYA Level 2 Powerboating and a trailer and/or minibus driver’s licence are desirable.
