The successful candidate will be responsible for driving performance to the next level with a view to building long term success and member engagement across the club.  The Head Coach will work with the squad captains and a team of volunteer coaches to deliver a top tier program that both inspires and enables the club’s athletes to achieve their potential.

City of Cambridge Rowing Club is the oldest town rowing clubs in Cambridge.  The club has a broad membership from juniors, through seniors to masters across sweep and sculling.  It competes both regionally and nationally.  The club has recently completed a new £1.1 million boathouse which includes a modern gym, clubroom and boat bay with the most modern fleet on the river Cam.

This role supersedes the Development and Outreach coach previously advertised, as additional funding has allowed us to split the roles and launch East Anglia Youth Rowing as a charitable organisation that is distinct from City of Cambridge Rowing Club

Rowing is a sport that can change lives with its unique combination of skills, challenge and teamwork.

Too often though the sport has been the preserve of rowing schools and universities as well as those lucky enough to encounter it by chance.

East Anglia Youth Rowing Program is an outreach program to introduce rowing to some of the more disadvantaged students at schools in East Anglia, with the goal of fostering inclusion, challenge and aspiration.  We also want to broaden access to the sport. The program will be run from City of Cambridge Rowing Club in partnership with Isle of Ely, Sudbury and Huntingdon rowing clubs.  The program is supported by the British Rowing Eastern Region Rowing Council and is part funded by LoveRowing, the British Rowing charitable foundation.

We will be launching the program in January 2022 with North Cambridge Academy where students from Year 9 will have the chance to take part in indoor and water rowing twice a week. At the same time we are joining forces with Isle of Ely Rowing Club to enhance an existing program at Ely College that is supported by the Gemini Boat Race Bursary Fund. From Easter we will be launching a program with Sudbury Rowing Club to bring rowing to Thomas Gainsborough School. Further schools will be added as funds become available.

If you are …

  • A school that is interested in the program
  • A rower, cox, coach or umpire within the sport who would like support the program by volunteering
  • A company that would like to support a program that will impact the life chances of disadvantaged students

… then we would like to hear from you. Email – events[at]
