CUBC looks to appoint new Men’s Assistant Coach

to succeed Jordan Stanley, who is leaving CUBC at the conclusion of the season to return to New Zealand. The new Assistant Coach will join the coaching team at CUBC and report directly to CUBC’s Men’s Chief Coach, Rob Baker. The candidate will be both enthusiastic and motivated, and will have relevant experience as a coach or as a top-level athlete. 

The Men’s Assistant Coach holds a key supporting role in preparing CUBC’s Squad for the Boat Race, National Trials and summer regattas such as Henley Royal Regatta. The role includes specific responsibility for the coaching of Goldie, the Men’s Reserve Crew.

Full details are contained in the Job Description.

The appointment is full time and based in Cambridge, United Kingdom. 

Candidates interested in the post may contact Rob Baker at [email protected], in order to initiate an informal, confidential discussion. Rob will be available from Wednesday 23rd June.

Formal applications, including a CV and covering letter are to be made in writing to Alister Taylor, Executive Secretary of the CUBC, by email at [email protected] or by post at The Goldie Boathouse, Kimberley Road, CAMBRIDGE, CB4 1HJ, United Kingdom by 6pm UK time on Friday, 9th July. Interviews may take place before the advertised closing date.

Candidates must be able to work in the UK (via sponsorship for non-EU applicants) and the following competencies are desirable:

  • Understanding of, and empathy, with the CUBC system.
  • Strong personal credibility and integrity: a figure for whom the athletes will want to win.
  • Expert knowledge of the Tideway or competing in tidal conditions.
  • Relevant success as a rower or cox competing at the highest level.
  • Current driver’s licence – ideally to include B+E towing endorsement.

The Club is seeking to make an early appointment to this important role in order that the successful applicant join CUBC in advance of the commencement of the 2022 Boat Race program in early September. An appropriate compensation package including accommodation will be agreed with the successful applicant. The remuneration package will be similar to the current level.
