CUBC seeks full-time administrator

Cambridge University Boat Club [CUBC] has a vacancy for a full-time administrator, to
coordinate and carry out all aspects of administrative and operational tasks and ensure that
the club runs smoothly. The role is based at the Goldie Boat House, Cambridge, and at the
University Boat House, Ely. CUBC is the high-performance rowing club of the University of
Cambridge and is a distinct and independent entity from the university. We are keen to
encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to join our small team of highly motivated
staff and coaches.

CUBC selects and trains six crews of student athletes to compete in the world-famous Boat
Race from Putney to Mortlake in London each Spring. Student-athletes may continue to race
throughout the summer vacation in preparation for other regattas, such as BUCS, Henley
Royal Regatta, or international duties.

This role requires flexibility in working hours and may also involve evening and weekend
work during busy times, as well as some nights away, for example in London in support of the Boat Race preparations. A driving licence is essential; experience of driving trailers would be desirable.

CUBC are looking to appoint a person with good IT and administrative skills that will ensure
systems (including the CUBC website), processes and databases are efficient and well-
managed. Administrative duties will include supporting Board and Annual General Meetings
of the CUBC and The CUBC Foundation, supporting the audit function and budgetary
processes, and assisting the Head of Philanthropy and Communications in content creation for
the website and social media channels. Operational duties will include working alongside
the CUBC’s leadership and professional coaching teams to promote and help deliver the
success of the Club.

The successful candidate will have an enthusiastic and positive personality and an ability to
build good working relationships and work in a team. They will be organised, a master at
multi-tasking, with a broad variety of skills and an excellent understanding of the needs of
high-performance athletes. They will be proactive and efficient: an excellent team player.
This role involves working with the university departments, college boat clubs, volunteer
Board members, alumni, current and prospective student-athletes, as well as the CUBC and
Boat Race Company staff.

A good knowledge of the University of Cambridge structures and processes both pastorally
and academically is desirable. Ideally, they would have a passion for sport and understand
the issues affecting the sports sector; knowledge of rowing is preferable but not essential.

A full Curriculum Vitae, and a covering letter setting out your interest and including two
referees and contact details, should be sent to [email protected].

Deadline for receipt of applications is 8 April 2024.
Interviews will take place in Cambridge 22 and 23 April.
Salary will be commensurate with experience.
