Job Vacancy - Performance Pathway

Over the last 18 months, we have been working on a review of the Performance Pathway, from clubs through to the elite level, including a full stakeholder engagement. We had a very good engagement with the membership, including both the athletes and those associated with the current structure. On behalf of British Orienteering, I would like to thank all of you that have contributed towards this.

The key areas that we will address in the new structure are:

  • Developing a coherent joined-up Performance Pathway that reflects a shared vision, understood and bought into by all those involved – volunteers and professionals alike.
  • Encouraging more and better training consistently at the club and regional levels.
  • Widening the pool of athletes supported at level 3 and reducing the pressure and demands (e.g. travel time) time on those that are involved
  • Providing support for athletes in their junior to senior transition
  • Making sure Athlete welfare is at the heart of how the Performance Pathway operates
