British Cycling have stepped-up their search for a performance director to fill the role vacated by Sir Dave Brailsford in 2014 after releasing further details on qualities they are looking for.
According to a release issued today, the new director will be expected to "drive ambition to deliver annual inspirational success across all disciplines" in the Great Britain team.
They must also help the governing body in retaining its position as the world’s number one cycling nation.
This requires a "world-class performance leader" who will "enable the delivery of the performance strategy and achievement of annual and quadrennial medal targets".
They do not specify that the successful candidate must come from a cycling background, adding only that they should be experienced in "leading a team operating in elite sport at the highest level".
A "proven track record of establishing a culture of collaboration, team working, innovation and support" is another key quality.
The performance director has not been filled since Sir Dave left in April 2014 to focus upon leading Team Sky.
Head coach Shane Sutton then moved into a new role as technical director.
The Australian left 100 days before August's Olympic Games, however, following allegations of sexism.
He denies "specific claims" made by former sprint squad member Jess Varnish, although allegations that he used "inappropriate and discriminatory language" were upheld last week.
It is thought that programmes manager Andy Harrison, who took on many of Sutton's roles after his departure, could be one contender for the performance director role.
British cyclists won 33 medals at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, including 18 gold, but have faced a testing year off the track.
Their headquarters were also visited by UK Anti-Doping officials last month as part of an investigation into possible wrongdoing.
The closing date for applications is Friday December 2.
Interviews are then expected to take place before Christmas.
