Reporting to the CEO of Triathlon Australia, you will have responsibility for the development and effective leadership of all aspects of a robust, dynamic, leading edge high performance program. Your success will be measured not only by your ability to provide clear vision, strategy and planning for all system elements and partners, but also your ability to develop measurable program objectives and ensure key performance indicators are achieved.
Your compelling leadership will create an enviable competitive high performance environment that fosters collaboration, commitment, national team values, encourages high standards and ensures a quality daily performance environment and leading edge support services for the athletes. Strategies which strengthen the club based system, invest in the development of state and national performance centres, ensure pathways for talented junior athletes, as well as attract and develop more high performance coaches into the program are examples of the exciting challenges ahead.
You are a proven leader with a genuine sporting affinity and sound financial skills. Your track record of success in developing and delivering on an exciting vision and strategy has been achieved through outstanding team leadership, excellent interpersonal and negotiation skills, as well as collaboration with a range of internal and external stakeholders.
