Snowsports GB need a new CEO

Wed 12 August 09

The British Ski & Snowboard Federation is seeking a new boss to provide leadership for the organisation and to act as the co-ordinator and liaison between the Board, the staff and the athletes. Quite an opportunity and you will earn a good £40k pa

The British Ski & Snowboard Federation, trading as SnowsportGB, is a not-for-profit organisation responsible for the British teams in Alpine Ski Racing and Snowboarding.

The organisation’s role is primarily the management and promotion of Britain’s top international snowsport competitors.

The organisation has a turnover of some £1.1m per annum and employs 5 full time officebased
support staff in Ratho, Edinburgh. In addition there are 18 performance staff based outside the UK.

Results from the British athletes have been consistently improving over the past 10 years with
8 skiers and snowboarders now ranked in the world’s Top 100.

A highly motivated, efficient and experienced individual is sought to provide leadership for the
organisation and to act as the co-ordinator and liaison between the Board, the staff and the  athletes. The successful candidate will also need to demonstrate the ability to manage the financial affairs of the organisation. Whilst snowsport experience is not a pre-requisite, knowledge of a similar organisation and of UK sporting structures and values would be a
definite advantage.

Specifically, the candidate must demonstrate their ability to formulate and deliver strategic plans relating to operational standards, and have proven skills in the areas of financial control, fundraising, performance management, crisis management and conflict resolution.

Strong communication skills are required in order to develop an effective working relationship with the Board, stakeholders and athletes/parents. Proven negotiation skills combined with diplomacy, tact and honesty are highly desirable attributes.

Applications,using the form available at http://www.snowsportgb.com/about/staff/vacancies
should be sent by e-mail to gemma@snowsportgb.com and should be received no later than
Friday 4th September 2009.
