We are looking to appoint a Rowing Coach, to join our existing team, from September 2022. You will coach all pupils and students from our senior girls’ and boys’ and Sixth Form. This is a full-time post working 35 hours per week all year round.
This is an exciting opportunity for a forward-thinking coach, or a competitive and passionate rower, who is committed to their own development and co-creating an engaging environment for our students to learn and progress to a national racing standard.
To be successful in this role, you must be:
- Have relevant experience in a similar role, as a coach or highly experienced and committed rower.
- Be able to create a training programme for the teams you are working with
- Keen to contribute to the whole department so we continue to progress
- Patient, with the ability to inspire confidence in others
- Able to work on your own initiative and have a commitment to working within the team
- Skilled in building excellent working relationships with students and colleagues
- Flexible in your approach to work, with the ability to work outside normal working hours, as some weekend and evening work will be required
Above all, you must want the very best for our students and be prepared to put their needs first. You recognise the importance of educating the whole child within a broad curricular and co-curricular programme, and of achieving high standards.
In return, we offer a positive working environment, with supportive colleagues and regular opportunities for professional development and training.
It is the policy of Claires Court Schools to ensure equality of opportunity for all members of staff, both teaching and non-teaching.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo Child Protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
In addition to an assessment of their ability to perform the duties of the post applied for, candidates invited to attend for interview should expect further discussion relating to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
In accordance with our Recruitment of Ex-offenders Policy, you are advised that all posts within the School will have the opportunity for unsupervised contact with children and therefore all shortlisted candidates will be required to complete a self-declaration form to declare any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not “protected” as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013). This is regardless of whether any such convictions, caution, reprimand or final warning is considered ‘spent’ or ‘unspent’.
The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are “protected” and not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us: this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offence(s).
