GB Skeleton seek Performance Engineer

The BBSA and UK Sports Institute (UKSI) are recruiting a Performance Engineer to work with the British Skeleton programme on the journey to the Milan Cortina Olympic Winter Games.

Following a hugely successful season which featured no fewer than 57 medals, including 13 on the World Cup circuit and three at the World Championships, British Skeleton are now seeking an engineer with leadership and project management skills to optimise their current equipment and develop future technology.

Based in Bath, the successful candidate will travel the world with the team and play a significant role in their success at the very highest level.

Responsibilities will include collection and analysis of performance data to develop on and off-ice racing equipment; control of production and drawings for all parts and assemblies; and support for all our research and innovation projects and partners.

Applicants will work closely with athletes and coaches alike and must be confident communicating technical information in a manner understood by non-engineering team mates and posses excellent interpersonal skills to excel in a close-knit working environment.
