The closing date for coaches, managers and physios who have aspirations to be involved in the GB programme is this week.

Ice Hockey UK and Great Britain head of development, Tony Hand, said: “I am very pleased with the standard, performance and commitment from the current GB staff and recently reported this position to the IHUK board as part of my annual review.

“However, succession planning is critical and is something that we have perhaps not focussed on as much as we should have in the past.

“To this end, I’d like to invite expressions of interest from any coach or manager who would like to be involved in the GB program moving forward.

“I want to provide a development pathway with coaches and managers being coached and mentored for the future.”

Please send your CV and covering letter to Andy French, IHUK general secretary, at

The closing date for applications is 30th June 2019.

Interviews for this voluntary position will take place on the weekend 13th July in Manchester, with venue and timings to be confirmed.
