AFL NSW/ACT is delighted to announce our Young Leader roles are open for 2023 across NSW and the ACT.

Young Leader roles 

There are multiple Young Leader roles across Sydney and ACT.

We are looking for outstanding individuals wanting to launch a career in sports administration and/or sports development.

A specifically designed program will introduce the trainee to all aspects of the AFL NSW/ACT business with a focus on program delivery, customer service, events, leadership and working with volunteers.

You will be trained by experts in their field to support local clubs and competitions.

The successful applicant will be employed by AFL SportsReady but will work on-site with AFL NSW/ACT and receive an accredited Certificate III in Business qualification (on successful completion). The traineeship will commence in January 2023, and you will work full-time (38 hours per week) for the duration of the school year whilst completing the qualification to compliment the on-the-job learning.
