The Ice Hockey UK Referee Section are currently inviting applications for the role of Officiating Manager. 

An #OfficiallyCool and exciting opportunity has arisen for the right candidate to join Ice Hockey UK Referee Section’s Management Team.

In addition to an already established team of on-ice officials, the IHUK Referee Section are running a long-term recruitment drive to increase numbers in the UK, all of which require direction and support from people with a positive ‘can do’ attitude.

The position of Officiating Manager is a senior management role which will see you line manage a group of officials at a particular level.

You will manage their assignments through your allocated assignor(s) while keeping track of the progress and development of your officials.

It is the intention that you will have a pool of Officiating Performance Coaches as a resource for you to utilise and who are able to assess, evaluate and coach them through your direction.

Reporting directly to the IHUK Referee Chief and Deputy Referee Chief, you will be responsible for an allocated budget for your department and subsequent monthly financial reporting may be necessary.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with officiating experience who is no longer an active official or someone that may wish to step off the ice and pursue a management/administration career within the sport.

The skills required for this role are no different to any other senior management position in any other organisation. However, you will be directly involved with helping to improve the game that we all love.

If you feel you have the necessary skills, experience and qualities, we would like to hear from you.

The closing date is Saturday 1st July 2023.

For consideration for this role, please apply in writing directly to via email to both…
