Olympic Federation of Ireland opens Tokyo 2020 and European Games 2019 Chef de Mission recruitment process

The Olympic Federation of Ireland has announced that it is seeking to recruit a Chef de Mission for Team Ireland at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and the European Games in Minsk 2019. Recruitment for this role opens today and will close on Friday the 19th of October.

The successful candidate will report to the Olympic Federation of Ireland’s CEO, Peter Sherrard, and will play an important role in helping Team Ireland to perform in the Summer Olympic and European Games. The project will run from January 2019 to August 2020, with the workload and commitments intensifying in the immediate lead up to, and duration of the Games.

Previously the role of Chef de Mission was recruited internally or on a voluntary basis, and this is the first time that it is being advertised as a professional stand-alone role, considering the significant workload and meticulous project management skills required. The role involves the co-ordination of Team Ireland’s preparations and participation at the Games.

President of the Olympic Federation of Ireland Sarah Keane said, “The decision of the Executive Committee to appoint our Chef de Mission for Team Ireland as a professional stand-alone role is a significant milestone. Coming at a time of ever closer cooperation with Sport Ireland and the Sport Ireland Institute it represents another important building block in Team Ireland’s games preparations.”

Peter Sherrard CEO of the Olympic Federation of Ireland added, “This is an exciting opportunity for a suitable person to drive and shape Team Ireland’s participation at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo and at the European Games in Minsk 2019. For the first time we are creating a professional stand-alone role, to reflect the significant time, travel and attention to detail that is required."
