As the national body responsible for implementing the World Anti-Doping Code in Australia, ASADA works with athletes and support personnel around the country to implement a comprehensive education program aimed at preventing doping, in order to protect the health of athletes and the integrity of Australian sport.
As we expand our education program, we are looking for presenters across Australia to deliver engaging and interactive face-to-face education sessions to athletes, coaches, managers and other support personnel at all levels of sport – from grassroots to the elite.
These sessions will incorporate innovative technologies including virtual reality, mobile apps, online browsing and augmented reality, so applicants should be very comfortable using technology and learning new presentation techniques.
Casual Education Presenters may also be responsible for manning ASADA Outreach activities at key sporting events, educating participants and the general public on ASADA’s role and on a wide range of anti-doping issues.
Who we want
ASADA is looking to employ presenters who are confident presenting to small and large groups, and are comfortable using technology. Successful applicants will be strong communicators who are friendly, outgoing and can engage and connect with athletes from a wide range of backgrounds.
Applicants who have worked or competed in high performance sport are highly encouraged to apply.
As these are casual positions, the hours will be flexible and dependent on the needs of sports. This can include weekdays, weekends, and evening work. Applicants should specify their availability in their application.
