We are looking for a dynamic Team Manager to lead the management of the England Team at the Home International Rowing Beach Sprints. You’ll be an effective communicator able to inspire and enable both your team workforce and athletes to perform to the best of their potential at the Beach Sprints.

You’ll have excellent organisational skills, arranging and coordinating all the team’s requirements. Including accommodation, meals, transport, kit, and ensuring all British Rowing policies are followed.

🏁 About the Home International Rowing Beach Sprints

The Home International Rowing Beach Sprints is a new event with the four “Home Nations” of England, Scotland, Wales & Ireland competing. The event is building off the rich history of its sister event the Home International Rowing Regatta, which has seen many Olympians racing for their first international representation. We hope the Home International Rowing Beach Sprints will create a clear pathway onto Great Britain and Ireland national teams in the decades to come.

For the first time in 2022 the Home Nations will compete at the Beach Sprints. In the voluntary role of Team Manager, you will lead the management, selection and training camp of the England Team to compete at the Home International Rowing Beach Sprints.
