Cycling Ireland Recruiting High Performance Pathway Coach

Cycling Ireland’s High Performance Unit (HPU) is recruiting for a new High Performance Pathway Coach aiming to lead on the coaching delivery of an inspirational High Performance Pathway Programme from youth participant or talent ID through to senior age group competitiveness on the world stage.

Michael Black has occupied this role for the past year, and is successfully undertaking a strategy refresh and building a new HP Pathway Programme for Junior and U23 cyclists.

Due to Michael’s work in this project, the HPU are lifting Michael into a HP Pathway Lead role to focus solely on HP Pathway Development and on-going management of the programme. The HPU have been successful in attracting funding from Sport Ireland to recruit a new Coach to work in the HP Pathway under Michael’s leadership.

High Performance Director Iain Dyer commented:

“We established early on the critical need to revitalise the HP Pathway, and furthermore align our activities with those of Participation and Development in Cycling Ireland who focus on the younger age riders. Michael’s work in consulting with all our key stakeholders and forge ahead with reimagining the HP Pathway is invaluable, but inevitably it’s difficult to be the sole Coach in the programme at the same time."
“This funding from Sport Ireland allows to take the jump to committing Michael fully to strategy and HP Pathway Programme management, and enables us to recruit a f/t Coach to work solely with the HP Pathway riders under Michael’s leadership."
“We are looking for an experienced Coach, with a road or track bias, or perhaps a multi-disciplinary background to help take our HP Pathway to the next level. We have some hugely talented young riders to work with and I’m sure it will be an exciting challenge.”

The Job description is available here and applications are open until COB on June 21st.
