About NISA

The National Ice Skating Association of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (NISA) wishes to recruit an Administrator and is now inviting applications.

Established in 1879, NISA is a membership association, and operates as a company limited by guarantee. NISA is recognised by the International Skaters Union (ISU), the British Olympic Association (BOA), UK Sport and the Home Nation Sports Councils as the national governing body (NGB) for the sport of ice skating in the United Kingdom.

The Board of NISA has just recently adopted an exciting new strategy for the development of the sport over the next ten years.

About the Administrator Position

NISA is now looking for an individual with the knowledge, skills and experience, to join the company as Administrator and to bring their enthusiasm and drive to meet the challenging targets NISA has set for itself.

Working across multiple programmes and services including membership, tests, coaching, performance, development, events and safeguarding, you will be joining a small, friendly, dynamic team, providing administration support to engage more people in ice skating.

This is a pro-active role which requires organised, energetic and professionally minded individuals with: 

• excellent computer skills and competent in using all MS Office products

• a keen eye for detail and the ability to manage multiple projects

• good written and verbal communication skills

• the ability to build positive working relationships with individuals and partner organisations

• the ability to work well under pressure and to meet deadlines whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality 

In line with our Equality and Diversity Policy we are keen to achieve a more diverse workforce and would welcome applications from those communities under-represented in sport, in particular people from ethnic minorities, people with disabilities and women. 

NISA is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. 

About the Sport 

Ice skating is structured into two divisions; Speed Skating and Figure Skating. Speed Skating consists of the Olympic disciplines of Long Track and Short Track, whilst Figure Skating covers the disciplines of Singles/Pairs, Dance and Synchronised of which only Synchronised is not an Olympic discipline. 

There are approximately 120,000 people who skate regularly in the UK, and just under 6,000 individuals and 75 clubs are members of NISA. With offices based in Nottingham, NISA provides educational services, competitive opportunities and development programmes for all levels. This includes administering, accrediting and promoting Skate UK, a formal learn-to-skate programme, which is recognised by ice rinks and used by other sport NGBs as a standard for competitive participation.

Ice Skating has a proud history of medal success at the Olympic Games, especially during the 1970s and 1980s. In 2014 NISA was awarded circa £6m from UK Sport to assist the drive for podium success, in Short Track Speed Skating and Figure Skating, aimed at producing podium performances at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in 2018 and beyond. The Short Track Speed Skating programme is currently managed by the English Institute of Sport and a key objective is to complete the necessary work in order to reintegrate the programme within NISA after the 2018 Olympics.
