Scottish Rowing is excited to announce three new full-time coaching roles based in Scotland as the organisation looks to continue to build upon successes within the Olympic pathway and create new opportunities within the Commonwealth and Paralympic pathways. 

Rowing has been one of Scotland’s leading Olympic sports over several cycles, consistently punching above its weight both domestically and internationally with Scottish rowers making up one fifth of Team GB at Tokyo 2020.

With the backing of sportscotland and British Rowing, Scottish Rowing is looking to build upon progress made over the past decade – acknowledging the significant development of university rowing in Scotland during this period - and evolve and diversify our performance pathway programme to meet current and future demands.

This new investment supports the most important evolution of Scottish Rowing’s performance pathway in its history and will allow the governing body to better support its network of clubs, schools and universities.

We are now seeking applications from accomplished, ambitious and committed coaches who are motivated to join us on this journey as we aim to create more high-quality opportunities for talented individuals from all backgrounds to achieve their potential on the world stage whilst helping to raise the bar at all levels across our rowing community.

All roles will benefit from outstanding personal development opportunities underpinned by a positive, collaborative and supportive team culture which prioritises and supports good health and wellbeing for both coaches and athletes.

The coaching team will receive exceptional support from a multi-disciplinary practitioner team deployed from the sportscotland institute of sport to back our programme.  They will also benefit from a strong working relationship with colleagues at the GB Rowing Team and access to a world class international rowing facility at Strathclyde Park.

The roles being advertised today include:

The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on Sunday 26th March 2023.

Scottish Rowing will also shortly commence recruitment for a Performance Pathway Co-Ordinator, a key member of our team who will provide essential first-class administrative and logistical support for all programme activity and access to a world class international rowing facility at Strathclyde Park.
