The IOF is seeking a part-time Sports Director for ski orienteering for the years 2015-2016. We are looking for a person who possesses a solid knowledge of ski orienteering, and who is able to support the IOF’s ambitions for development of the ski orienteering discipline. Marketing or media skills will be seen as advantageous.

The Sports Director for ski orienteering is a part-time job mainly for the duration of the ski orienteering season January- March, but it also requires some visits to event organisers, and meetings with the IOF SkiO Commission during the year. The work involves event planning, event advising, and supporting and evaluating the events in cooperation with the IOF Ski Orienteering Commission.

The Sports Director works closely with the IOF Office, the IOF Ski Orienteering Commission, and the organisers of IOF major ski orienteering events.

The Sports Director for ski orienteering provides and oversees administrative directives for IOF ski orienteering competitions, and is hence actively shaping the future of the sport. The Sports Director actively collaborates with organisers of IOF major ski orienteering events, and ensures the high quality of all aspects of the events. Together with the IOF Ski Orienteering Commission, the Sports Director is also responsible for ensuring that the competitions comply with all IOF competition rules and regulations. Occasional working weekends and travel during the ski orienteering season is required. The working language is English.

If you are interested in applying for this post, please apply by email to IOF Secretary General Barbro Rönnberg by 15 September 2014. Please include your CV and contact details, and an indication of your preferred salary range.

Further enquiries about the post should be addressed to IOF Secretary General Barbro Rönnberg at the email address above.
