As with the Head Coach role, the term of office of the current High Performance Administrator is coming to an end. Orienteering Australia is looking to fill the position for the 2021 – 2022 period, with an option to continue in the role for a further two years by mutual agreement.

The Orienteering Australia (OA) National Head Coach and High Performance (HP) Administrator have operational responsibility for OA’s HP program.
The roles work closely together, and the precise division of duties between the two can be tailored to the particular skills and preferences of the individuals.

The HP Administrator position description is as described in the attached.
Primary responsibility is for administration of the HP program in consultation with States, athletes, OA and other stakeholders.

The main selection criterion for the role of HP Administrator is the demonstration of high level program management skills and the ability to effectively communicate requirements and outcomes with stakeholders, maintain trust and transparency, and deliver on expectations in a timely manner.

In addition to working closely with the OA Head Coach, the role must also collaborate with the other members of the OA High Performance Management Group as well as other key stakeholders.
It is desirable that the successful candidate has a background in, or knowledge of, high performance orienteering.

Orienteering Australia is prepared to negotiate duties, hours worked and remuneration for both positions. The nature of the appointment (casual employee, or volunteer with reimbursed expenses) will be subject to negotiation with the successful applicant and subject to available budget.

All applications, consisting of current CV, and aspirations for the role, should be submitted to the Orienteering Australia Executive Officer.
Application deadline is 25th October 2020.
