Cambridge University Rowing is searching for an aspirational Assistant Coach to work at the heart of its performance programme, developing student athletes to represent Cambridge University in the Boat Races and beyond. This role will appeal to an ambitious coach who is a good communicator and wishes to be part of a quality performance team, working with high-achieving student athletes.

The successful individual will be an essential part of a three-person professional coaching team tasked with building on, and enhancing, the existing performance programme.
