Yarm School – Head of Rowing

We are looking for an enthusiastic, qualified and experienced rowing coach to join the Yarm School team as Head of Rowing.

Yarm School Boat Club was founded in 1997 and has achieved a great deal in its relatively short history. With around 15% of the school rowing each term, the Boat Club is a thriving part of school life, enjoying stunning purpose-built facilities including boathouse, with ergo room and office space, and pontoon, on the banks of the river Tees within the school grounds.

Although the club is overseen by the Director of Sport, in practice a great deal of its organisation and day to day work will be delegated to the Head of Rowing. This post involves overseeing a good deal of the daily running of the Boat Club, including boat and equipment maintenance, entries into competitions and logistical planning, as well as leading the coaching staff on the water.

We would welcome applications from anyone who is also able to teach a subject alongside their role as Head of Rowing, but that this is not an essential requirement of the position and we will consider all applicants who have the qualifications and experience to be Head of Rowing, whether they teach or not.

We are offering a competitive salary dependent on the successful candidates’ experience and qualifications.

For further details please visit the Yarm School website here.

Please note that applications must be made on the School’s application form and accompanied by a covering letter.

Yarm School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and the successful candidate will be subject to vetting checks including an enhanced DBS check.

Application Dates: From Friday 13th January 2023 to Monday 30th January 2023
