Job Vacancy - Welsh Triathlon Chief Executive Officer


Welsh Triathlon are recruiting for a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to provide outstanding leadership to our organisation from grassroots, right through to elite performance.

Welsh Triathlon works with the other Home Nations of British Triathlon (Triathlon England and Triathlon Scotland), to oversee all aspects of multisport activity within their respective countries. Our vision is to develop a triathlon community that enhances the well-being of current and future generations in Wales. We are a fast-growing national governing body (NGB) at a time where triathlon’s popularity is rapidly increasing both at home and internationally, and where Welsh athletes are achieving international success.

Reporting to the Board and leading the staff team, as well as the contracted and volunteer workforce, this exciting and varied role encompasses everything from the development of participation and grassroots activity, to elite performance at the highest level of the sport. The ideal candidate will be commercially and financially capable, have experience of sporting standards, effective governance and working with external partners.

They will be an inspirational and entrepreneurial leader of people, and able to demonstrate their experience in attracting, retaining and developing exceptional staff to build a cohesive and effective team. As the leader of a small and dynamic organisation they will need the ability to adapt between a hands-on approach, strategic thinking and being an impressive ambassador for Welsh Triathlon and advocate for the benefits of the sport in general. If you believe you have this combination of skills, we would love to hear from you!
