Job Opportunity - Development Coach

Cycling Ireland is seeking to recruit a full-time Development Coach to strengthen our pathway for aspiring riders to reach World Championships level competitiveness in the LA Olympic Cycle and beyond. 


The successful candidate will work with the Head Coach (HC) and National Track Coach (NTC) in the delivery and strategic leadership of the “Perform” aspects of CI’s 2020-2024 Strategic Plan, of which a key aspect is the establishment of sustainable structures and systems specific to Olympic and Paralympic Programmes. 

The Development Coach is a new position in the High-Performance Unit (HPU) for the provision of high-performance coaching services to nationally identified young riders covering predominantly the final year youth, Junior and first year senior age groups. 

Our aim is to identify, develop and support riders through these essential stages in the pathway to enhance their potential to be competitive as senior athletes in future Olympic cycles. 

Currently we have a successful Athlete Development Programme, delivered in association with practitioners from Sport Ireland Institute. Recently this has been expanded from the Jnr age group to incorporate final year U16’s. We wish to continue developing this exciting programme, and look to develop further support across the Junior to Senior transition in future. We also aspire to develop further in the area of Talent ID in youth age groups, and see this new role as a key post in realising these ambitions, alongside day to day support of our Junior athletes.
