Cricket Ireland seeks to appoint Performance Director
Fri, Jul 15, 2011 3:39 PM
Cricket Ireland is the governing body for the game at both performance and participation levels throughout Ireland, representing the interests of both the men's and women's game. The future of Irish Cricket is incredibly bright following the performance of the Men's Senior XI in the past four ICC World Cup events and significant wins against Full Member countries over the past 4 years.
Cricket Ireland restructured its Cricket Department in June 2011 with the Cricket Operations Director role being split into a Performance Director position and a National Development Manager role. This now means that there are two focused positions within the Cricket Department with the Performance Director being the apex of the department. The National Development Manager reports into the Performance Director.
Part of the success story has been the development of the systems and structures that both support the Elite performance of the Men's senior XI as well as significant system development within the Women's game and in Coach Education that have spread the growth of the game throughout the 32 Counties of Ireland.
With the impending departure of the incumbent, an opportunity to take up this exciting position has become vacant.
Reporting into the Chief Executive, the Performance Director will have overall responsibility for Cricket Ireland's cricket programme, and particularly all matters relating to Performance and Elite Cricketing Environments within and in support of Cricket Ireland's Player Development Model. This will include Elite Coach Development, managing the High Performance Systems and processes and the management of international squads.
The position offers a genuine opportunity for the successful candidate to help implement, deliver and evolve the Performance and Elite programmes aimed at developing indigenous players and coaches with the ability to compete and beat the World's most respected Countries in both the Men's and Women's game.
If this opportunity excites you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application form. The final date to receive all applications is 5pm Ireland/UK time on Wednesday July 27th.
Should you be successful in making the short-list following the application form process, please note that interviews will take place on August 3 and 4.
