Wellington Rowing Club was named Club of the Year by Rowing New Zealand 2016, with success on the water accompanied by growing membership at all levels, a strong, positive culture and effective management.

We are looking for volunteer coaches to work within our existing framework (which is shared across all of our adult rowers) to promote our clear technical approach and supervise our training programme. We have Men’s and Women’s squads, Novice Men’s and Women’s squads and Masters squad.

The roles would suit experienced coaches or perhaps younger athletes moving away from direct participation but keen to develop coaching skills. We would like to develop the coaches who will support the club programme for the future. We would normally expect successful applicants to be available for at least the duration of the season.

Communication and interpersonal skills, commitment and self-discipline are essential. An understanding of the sport is also important, but an extensive record as an athlete, while of interest is less critical than the ability to engage with and develop diverse groups and individuals.

Although these roles are unpaid, approved expenses incurred will be reimbursed (e.g. transport and accommodation for training camps and regattas). We are not in a position to sponsor work visas to New Zealand however if you fit the criteria, you would be able to apply directly to Immigration New Zealand for a working holiday visa.
