Exciting Australian rowing coaching opportunities

Rowing Australia Ltd is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) for key positions in its national high performance system.

The national high performance system incorporates the National Rowing Centre of Excellence (NRCE) and the network of State Institute and Academy of Sport Rowing Programs.

The NRCE is a joint venture between Rowing Australia (RA) and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). It incorporates RA’s High Performance Program and the AIS Scholarship and National Camps Programs. The primary objective of the NRCE is to achieve sustainable medal winning performances by Australia at Olympic and Paralympic Games consistent with the Rowing Australia High Performance Plan. The NRCE is managed by a Joint Management Committee (JMC) of RA and AIS personnel and is located at the AIS Rowing Facility in Canberra.

The seeking of EOI’s is part of new quadrennial process whereby key positions in the Australian high performance rowing network are declared open to expressions of interest prior to each summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The EOI process is a means of determining market interest in positions. It will be used as part of a process of making informed retention and recruitment decisions for key positions immediately after the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. It may also be relied upon as the sole means of advertising for the recruitment of those positions.

If you wish to be considered for a key role within this exciting and dynamic high performance rowing environment, your expression of interest should provide specific reference to the position or range of positions that you wish to be considered for. You may express interest in one or several position/s in the same letter.
