The Irish Tourist Industry Confederation (ITIC) is the representative voice of businesses engaged in tourism – an industry of over 20,000 enterprises, generating over €5 billion annually, and employing over 200,000 people.
The organisation is seeking to recruit a Chief Executive due to the impending retirement of the present incumbent.
Since its formation in 1984 ITIC has been an influential campaigner in promoting the interests of tourism businesses to policy makers and the State’s tourism agencies. A central tenet of the ITIC philosophy is to maintain a high level of awareness of tourism’s role in national and regional economic development and job creation. ITIC has developed a key advocacy role on behalf of the sector based on rigorous research and robust case making which have successfully shaped policy and programmes for the industry.
ITIC is seeking an experienced individual who will work with the industry in developing a vision and setting the strategy for the continued growth of Irish tourism. The Chief Executive, reporting to the Board, will need to demonstrate visionary leadership qualities, analytical experience and strong interpersonal skills. A high level of communication skills is required to make formal, persuasive presentations to individuals and groups, to develop and maintain cooperative relationships with key constituencies, and to lead the organisation to a new level of achievement. The successful candidate will be expected to further develop the organisation’s capacity to support the needs of its membership within a challenging environment and a fast evolving sector.
It is probable that the successful candidate will have a deep knowledge of the Irish tourism business.
Further information on what ITIC does is available on www.itic.ie.
Terms and conditions for the position will be competitive and will be discussed at interview.
If you think working at a senior representative level in Irish tourism is something to which you can bring value, I would love to hear from you, but only electronically, and on or before June 2nd 2015.
