Merton College Boat Club are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious Men’s coach for the coming academic year. Competitive pay available, all applications welcome. Trial outings will be held on the Isis in the next two weeks.

MCBC is proud to have a newly refurbished Men’s 1st shell, a brand new launch, and a recently opened erg room to its disposition this year.

Your responsibilities: 

  • Help design and oversee an exciting and challenging training programme with weekly water sessions, erg sessions, and circuits.

  • Together with the Men’s captains, select crews for Torpids and Summer Eights.
  • Bank ride your crew at each of those regattas.
