Ladies Football Development Role

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association is looking to appoint a National Development Manager to continue its progress as one of the largest, fastest growing sports in Ireland.

The high-level position, reporting to CEO Helen O’Rourke, will be responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of the Association’s Development Strategy and management of the team to deliver it.

Last month the Association appointed Jackie Cahill to the position of Commercial and Communications Manager and it is now planning to enter Year three of its highly successful partnership with Lidl.

Building on the success of a record-breaking attendance of over 46,000 at this year’s TG4 All Ireland Final will be a challenge that many would find attractive and competition for the role is expected to be hot.

Successful candidates will have:

  • Relevant 3rd level qualification in sports-related discipline or equivalent relevant to the post.
  • A proven track record of experience in the effective management and development of a team, allied with a minimum of 3 years’ experience of the development and delivery of development programmes in a sporting organisation.
  • Must have a knowledge of games development issues.
  • Strong planning and organisational skills and experience of managing and tracking the delivery of projects and programmes.
  • Excellent interpersonal, influencing and negotiation skills with the ability to build effective relationships with a variety of diverse stakeholders at local and national level.
  • Have an interest in the sport and a knowledge of the structures and operations of a sporting organisation.
  • Ability to work as part of a management team but also the initiative to make decisions and deliver on the remit of the role.

Completed application forms must be received by the Association not later than Tuesday 28th November 2017.
