The Irish Ice Hockey Association would like to invite applications for the posts of IIHL League Chairman and IIHA Referee in Chief.
Both positions will become vacant with the commencement of Season 2009/2010. Applications and Curriculum Vitae should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the closing date of 31/7/2009 so that the winning candidates may be introduced at the Annual General Meeting. Both positions are voluntary and the work entailed can be quite demanding. Fluency in English will be one of the main criteria on which the posts will be allocated, but a second language would be a bonus.
Candidates for the R.I.C. job will require a good working knowledge of the Rules and Regulations of the game as set out in the 2006 -2010 IIHF Official Rule Book, and would ideally have good skating ability, and experience officiating here or abroad. The successful Candidate will be responsible for the discipline standards of both the IIHL and the IIHL RD, the allocation of on-ice officials throughout the season, their further education, and recognition by the IIHF, and he/she will be required to assist the Discipline Committee by providing documentation and guidance when called upon.
The successful candidate for the post of League Chairman will be involved in the process of arranging fixtures, ensuring the smooth running of the leagues, liasing with the ice providers, the teams, the players and the executive. A good working relationship with the R.I.C. would be essential and diplomacy, tact and a sense of justice without fear or favour will be required as you will be called upon to be a final arbiter on many occasions.
