A manager is sought for the Australian team for the 2019 Australia-New Zealand Orienteering Challenge, to be contested as part of the 2019 Oceania Championships from Saturday 28th September to Sunday 6th October in NSW and Victoria.

The manager will be responsible for organising the team and has a number of formal responsibilities under the Challenge rules (mostly relating to agreements between the countries on late team changes, etc.).

The manager may also have a role in uniform orders1. The manager will be responsible for the distribution of uniforms (O-tops) and any co-ordination matters of the relay teams, especially to sort out last minute team changes if there are any injuries to selected team members.

The manager will not be expected to organise any travel or accommodation arrangements for the team.

As compensation for the role, Orienteering Australia will refund the entry fees to the Oceania Championship events of the selected candidate.

If you are interested in taking on this role, please contact Orienteering Australia as soon as possible and absolutely by Saturday, 7 September 2019 through the Executive Officer.

1 Any uniform order task will be limited in nature as selected team members may already have a Challenge top, and there are only a few tops currently in stock at the OA Office. Current supplier leads times are such that new tops cannot be ordered and received in time once team selection has been finalised. Any ordering of new tops will be shared with the OA Executive Officer.
