British Orienteering is the National Governing Body for orienteering in the UK. It is responsible for raising the profile and delivering medal-winning performances that promote the long-term development of talented juniors and supports the aspirations of our best international athletes with an embedded culture where athletes are treated with respect and care and enabled to flourish in their time in the programme and beyond.
In 2024 the World Sprint Orienteering Championships will be held in Edinburgh where Great Britain have a realistic opportunity for medal-winning performances.
In recent years, the athletes have delivered outstanding success at the World and Junior Championships. Such results have been a wonderful reward for the immense amount of effort our athletes have put in over the last few years where the level of disruption to their preparation has been unprecedented.
An exciting opportunity now exists to join British Orienteering’s Performance Pathway Programme as its new Performance Director.

The right person will identify with the current strategy and ways of working but will bring their own experiences to enable it to evolve towards even greater achievement. The nature of the role will require evening and weekend working and occasional travel. Informal enquiries can be made to Bob Dredge, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
