Commonwealth Games Scotland, in partnership with the Team Scotland Youth Trust and sportscotland, is seeking to recruit an outstanding person to lead the Achieve 2022 Programme, a mentor led programme to enable young athletes and coaches to gain critical knowledge and experience of a multi-sport environment.
First run in 2010 when 45 young athletes and coaches travelled to the Delhi Commonwealth Games, Achieve has since seen a further 90 participants go through the programme with many having already made the step up to compete or coach for Team Scotland at a Commonwealth Games. Returning for the Birmingham Games, Achieve 2022 will aim to propel more future stars onto sporting success, while also helping them develop a host of vital and transferable life skills.
We are keen to identify and appoint a Director who is passionate about developing young people, sport and the Games to take the lead role in the planning, development and delivery of the programme. You will need experience of leading projects and teams to successfully enhance learning for aspiring athletes, coaches and mentors during the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
This role is a voluntary position, however agreed out of pocket expenses will be met.
Applications close at midday on 19 April 2021.
