Swim Ireland
Listed September 16, 2016

Swim Ireland is seeking a highly qualified swimming coach with proven international podium success to assume the role of National Head Coach.  This role will be the primary technical lead for Ireland’s high performance swimming programmes, providing oversight of all National Squad athletes, regardless of location and in some cases directly coaching elite and sub-elite (Juniors/Youth) swimmers based at the High Performance Training Centre at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.

The National Head Coach will be responsible to the National Performance Director (NPD) and together they will work collaboratively and in unison to lead and deliver the Swim Ireland 2017-2020 High Performance Plan and to identify and prepare Ireland’s elite swimmers for the 2018 European Championships, 2019 World Championships and 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games campaign, and 2 years beyond. This post is supported by Sport Ireland and will work closely with the Irish Institute of Sport.

Our vision for High Performance Swimming is:

“High performing people in a high performance system working in unison to consistently achieve Olympic and World medals.”

Central to achieving this vision is a core set of principles:

·             Long-term perspective: we are committed to a long-term Performance Programme focussed on recurrent success not on short-term Olympic or World Championship cycles;

·             Systemic: our goal is to create a ‘system’ that is capable of developing the full potential of our athletes repeatedly rather than one-off successes based on individual athletes;

·             Podium: we are in the medals business – our programme aspires to deliver Olympic and World Championship medals;

·             People: the High Performance Programme is centred on the people within the system – athletes, coaches, support staff, and administrators and developing their capability to ensure that they reach world class standard for the good of the programme;

·             Positive journey: we aspire to make participation in the High Performance Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the programme and creating an aspiration for others to be involved.

It is important to note that while we are committed to long term success and sustainability, there is an expectation that clearly identified and agreed annual targets will drive and underpin short term success and systemic development.

Applications must be made by submitting the following to hpprojects@swimireland.ie:
·             Cover letter;
·             Comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including 3 referees, and
·             Personal statement addressing the essential criteria, and why you believe your skills, experience and values meet the requirements of the position.

National Performance Director
IRELAND, DUBLIN
SWIM IRELAND
Listed September 13, 2016

Swim Ireland (SI) is seeking to appoint a dedicated National Performance Director who will lead and deliver Swim Ireland’s 2017-2020 High Performance Plan and Performance Targets for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games campaign and beyond.  The National Performance Director will be the architect and custodian of the High Performance Plan, reporting directly to the Chief Executive.   He/she will be responsible for leading and managing a team of dedicated High Performance Coaches and Support Staff including a National Head Coach, to deliver on the SI High Performance Vision.  This post is supported by Sport Ireland and will work closely with them and the Irish Institute of Sport.

Our vision for High Performance Swimming is:
“High  performing  people  in  a  high  performance  system  working  in  unison  to consistently achieve Olympic and World medals.”

Central to achieving this vision is a core set of principles:
        Long-term perspective: we are committed to a long-term Performance Programme focussed on recurrent success not on short-term Olympic or World Championship cycles;
       Systemic: our goal is to create a ‘system’ that is capable of developing the full potential of our athletes repeatedly rather than one-off successes based on individual athletes;
       Podium: we are in the medals business – our programme aspires to deliver Olympic and World Championship medals;
        People: the High Performance Programme is centred on the people within the system – athletes, coaches, support staff, and administrators and developing their capability to ensure that they reach world class standard for the good of the programme;
        Positive journey: we aspire to make participation in the High Performance Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the programme and creating an aspiration for others to be involved.

It is important to note that while we are committed to long term success and sustainability, there is an expectation that clearly identified and agreed annual targets will drive and underpin short term success and systemic development.

Applications must be made by  submitting a cover letter, comprehensive CV  including 3 referees and a personal statement addressing the essential criteria and why you believe your skills, experience and values meet the requirements of the position, to hpprojects@swimireland.ie
