With less than two years to go until the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, a rare opportunity to join the British Sailing Team has arisen.

Team GB's sailors are the most successful in history - and now we're on the hunt for a practical, hands-on boat technician to work alongside our world-class technical team to help keep that title.

The role will involve working with the British Sailing Team's Chief Technical Officer and Boatbuilder at our base in Portland, Dorset, preparing and maintaining a variety of Olympic sailing dinghies and boards, and to help with the day to day running of the workshop.

Adam May, Chief Technical Officer for the British Sailing Team, said: "This is a really rare opportunity to play a major role in the team's preparation for Paris 2024.

"Olympic sailing relies on equipment and we need someone who can help ensure we have the best-prepared kit in the world."

High level practical skills, measurement experience, and attention to detail, ideally in boatbuilding or surface finishing, are required. In addition, you will need to be able problem solve, work independently and have good people skills.

Does this sound like you? If so, please contact for an informal chat.
