British Cycling has launched an extensive search for candidates to fill the role of chief executive within the organisation.

The successful applicant will take the position currently held by Ian Drake, who will leave the firm in April of 2017 after a 20-year-long career within British Cycling.

The cycling governing body has specified that it is looking for “an outstanding leader who will harness full responsibility for driving business growth and increased participation, and ensuring effective governance of an internationally-renowned sporting organisation”.

The company also commented that an outgoing nature and high-visibility are two areas in which prospective candidates must excel, whilst “inspiring the delivery of world-class performance in all areas.”

The candidate brief states that the ideal post holder will be “an exceptional board-level executive who has created a high-performing consumer-focused business, achieved financially sustainable growth and has a track record of ensuring first-class service delivery to multiple stakeholders.”

Commenting on the new vacancy, British Cycling’s president Bob Howden said: “It’s a very exciting time for British Cycling; with a ground-breaking partnership with HSBC UK beginning next year and the start of a fresh four-year cycle in the run up to Tokyo.

“The organisation’s membership is at 130,000 – it’s highest-ever level – and the appetite for cycling shows no signs of slowing. This is an incredible opportunity for an innovative, inspirational leader to come on board and drive further results across all levels of the sport.”
