British Cycling emphasising ‘culture’ in search for performance director

by CyclingTips

In a job advertisement for the role of performance director, British Cycling emphasised it is seeking a candidate that will “Build a culture and climate that enables the Great Britain cycling team to achieve sustained success.”

The role is currently occupied in the interim by programmes manager Andy Harrison, after Shane Sutton resigned over accusations of sexist and discriminatory behaviour. Those allegations were recently upheld by an independent investigation tribunal.

Also listed in the posting under “other qualities” is a “commitment to equality and diversity.”

Reports have indicated UK Sailing’s Stephen Park and England Netball’s Sara Symington, a two-time Olympic cyclist, to be interested candidates in the position.

The deadline for applications is December 2, with interviews to take place before the end of the year.
