British Triathlon is looking to appoint a Performance Director based at our headquarters in Loughborough to build on our current success and lead us through to Rio and beyond.
Britain currently boasts both the male and female world champion over standard distance triathlon as well as World and European title holders at long distance triathlon and duathlon and a pipeline of emerging talent. Put simply, our top athletes are world class.
We are seeking a leader who has the creativity, passion and the vision to develop the strategic direction, inspire and engage and drive the shared vision to achieve sustainable, world-leading performance at all levels. Your experience in delivering excellence will build confidence that this vision can be delivered, enhancing performance throughout our GB Triathlon teams. The existing athletes, coaches, staff and the Board who have supported the journey to London 2012 have demonstrated that together, we have the talent to succeed; their engagement in the future performance journey is critical.

Our mission is to promote excellence and create everyone’s personal triathlon challenge. If “no stone unturned” performance delivery is the challenge that inspires you, then this is the role for you.
Applicants will have significant experience of high performing environments, a good technical knowledge of endurance sport, backed up by personal experience in the field of elite international competition. You will be a leader with the ability to develop a shared vision and build a strategy around that vision. You will have the skills to build, manage, inspire and engage the teams to deliver that vision. Strong interpersonal and communication skills and the proven ability to lead a diverse, highly skilled team are essential.
Applicant must be able to spend periods of time away from home at weekends and evenings and travel extensively overseas for extended periods.
