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 self-employed basis between September 2022 and August 2023, 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 who is either, an experienced rowing coach looking to take on an additional role, or someone with a keen interest in rowing who is looking for employment whilst undertaking studies at university.  Alternatively, you may simply wish to pursue your own personal interest in rowing.  Either way, 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 role in our organisation is fully supported by the Lead Rowing Coach, the QEHS Rowing 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.
