Assistant Head of Eligibility – 2 posts (voluntary)

As part of its efforts to enhance the athlete eligibility process, Virtus is pleased to invite applications for two new posts within the Eligibility Committee:

  • Assistant Head of Eligibility (II1)
  • Assistant Head of Eligibility (II2)

Following a period of substantial growth and to ensure we continue to deliver a gold-standard eligibility service for sport for athletes with an intellectual impairment, Virtus is increasing the management structure that underpins the athlete eligibility process.

Since 2017, Virtus has increased the number of eligibility groups in competition from one to three whilst the number of athletes seeking eligibility has increased by some 100% in the same period. In 2022, more than 800 applications were processed by the Eligibility Panel – our highest number ever – and this growth is expected to continue.
