Closing date:

Queen Elizabeth High SchoolHexham
Date posted:
Start date: April 2019
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: Commensurate with coaching pay scales. To be discussed at interview.
Contract term: Temporary

Queen Elizabeth High School has a strong sporting ethos, with rowing accessed by students through the school’s extra-curricular activities programme. The rowing club has an excellent reputation, with training facilities on site and very good boat storage with water access at Tyne Green Country Park, Hexham.  

As a result of an expanding membership, the school is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and flexible Rowing Coach on a casual basis between April and September, with the possibility of further extension.  The role of the coach will be to work with individuals and groups aged 13 to 19 to support them in achieving their sporting goals, as well as to fulfil other reasonable duties as requested, ensuring compliance with RowSafe guidance.  

This is a great opportunity for someone looking for experience of life in a school before undertaking a PGCE or equivalent, or those looking for employment whilst at university, or who have just left, perhaps managing  this position alongside  another job role.  Or, you may simply wish to pursue your own interest in rowing.  Eitherway, it is essential that the successful candidate will have a genuine passion for rowing and be expected to have a high level of rowing knowledge (either as a coach and/or through experience as an athlete).   The successful candidate will possess the drive and enthusiasm to build on the recent accomplishments of the rowing club and be willing to contribute fully to the life of the club, including running evening rowing sessions, weekend events, fixtures, and trips and coaching outside of term time.

This is a new role in our organisation but it will be fully supported by the Club Leader and the large number of committed parent volunteers who assist in the administration and smooth running of the club. 

Hadrian Learning Trust is committed to the safeguarding of children and adopts recruitment procedures that promote their safety and well-being. All posts are subject to enhanced DBS clearance.
