About Sports Science & Sports Medicine Lead
A crucial element of the role will be creating impact across the aquatic disciplines through aligned work on identified strategic projects, groups and 'themes'.
The SSSM team is organised into four key 'themes' which set direction across the aquatics;
- Innovation, biomechanics and analysis
- Physical performance
- Mental performance and lifestyle
- Athlete health
The successful candidate will play an active role in supporting the heads of 'themes', and depending on their area of expertise, will lead a 'theme' area.
This is an exciting time to join British Swimming at a crucial stage of the cycle with the opportunity to impact on Paris performances, as well as helping to shape the direction for the Los Angeles cycle. As such, the successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to understand the context of the aquatics, and build relationships rapidly, in order to impact effectively at this stage of the cycle. We are looking for an enthusiastic and hardworking individual with a proven record of leading high performance teams.
Candidates must demonstrate suitability to be role models for the high-performance culture and behaviours expected in the British Swimming environments.
If you feel that you have the skills and attributes for this role, then we would like to hear from you.
