NSW Touch Football is looking for a friendly and organised person to join the team on a full time basis in an entry level role in sport administration. 

To be successful in this role, you will be a confident communicator and be comfortable both in front of groups "on the field" and "off the field" with administration. You will be organised, yet also flexible and agile to think on your feet with the many curve balls you will face.

This position is responsible for the delivery of New South Wales Touch Football development and education programs for playing, coaching, refereeing, and selecting under an assigned region of the state (frequent, regular solo regional travel within NSW is required). In addition, staff deliver the NSWTA Major Events such as State Cup and Junior State Cups. 

Experience in touch football may be an advantage, yet similar transferrable skills may apply from other sports.

While we look for qualifications and experience, we also look for people who share our CARE values.

Care - We care about our sport and the people within our Touch Football community.
Accountability - We do what we say we will do, when we say we will do it.
Respect - We welcome everyone to our sport and value what they bring.
Excellence - We embrace change, have a growth mindset and strive to be better tomorrow than we are today.
