St Paul’s Girls’ School is one of the country’s leading independent schools for girls aged 11-18, with approximately 800 students. It is an extraordinary school, offering a classical yet forward-thinking education, rooted in a love of academic discovery and enriched by a broad co-curricular programme, nurturing wellbeing provision and a strong commitment to partnerships and community initiatives. Aspirations and achievements go well beyond what one would normally expect from a school, making St Paul’s a very exciting, lively and stimulating place in which to work.

Students want to make a difference, and many go on to roles tackling some of the greatest challenges facing people and planet. Respect for environmental sustainability is expected of all staff, both in terms of minimising use of resources in daily operations and supporting the school’s aim of preparing students fully for life and work in the mid-21st century.

St Paul’s Girls’ School is looking to appoint an additional rowing coach to support its vibrant rowing programme.  Coaches require a sound technical knowledge of the rowing stroke and the ability to coach girls of varying ability. Reporting to the Head of Rowing, coaches are expected to manage a group of girls effectively and safely, providing a high standard of support.  Coaches also assist with boating and the putting away of boats. They must be able to confidently drive a launch and understand the navigational rules of the river. Having a power boat 2 license would be advantageous.

Other duties would include:

  • Assisting with the maintenance of the fleet which would include small repairs and rigging
  • Trailer loading and unloading with Tideway Scullers School and Fulham Reach Boat Club
  • Day to day administration organising crew line ups via email
  • Overseeing the changing facility
  • Overseeing strength and conditioning including weights training

The successful candidate will have rowing and coaching experience and an understanding of how to keep a fleet of boats well maintained.  A knowledge of strength and conditioning would be an advantage, as would previous experience of the Tideway.
