Trinity College founded by Henry VIII in 1546 is the largest of the Cambridge colleges. The College has approximately 190 Fellow’s, 350 staff, 700 undergraduate students and 400 post graduate students. The First and Third Trinity Boat Club typically teaches between 60 and 80 people to learn to row each year- with boats going out training anything between two and five times a week. It is thought that nearly half of the College’s population will try it during their time at Trinity. The Club is an integral part of College life and provides a positive and beneficial focus for students from their studies.
The post holder will provide coaching and support to help all members achieve their individual and competition goals. This includes all students and Alumni, all of differing rowing and coxing ability.
