While boasting a rich history in the football industry, we have expanded our reach to create tailored education and employment pathways for individuals from all walks of life who are seeking to kick-start their careers.

We have kick-started the careers of approximately 17,500 jobseekers, including over 3,000 Indigenous Australians, and supported hundreds of organisations & businesses right across Australia.

Join AFL SportsReady in our mission to empower individuals through a unique blend of education and on-the-job experience.

AFL SportsReady’s head office is based in Melbourne, with satellite offices based in Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane, and Sydney.


This is a hybrid role, involving a balance between working from the office, conducting site visits, and working from home. We believe in-person connections are crucial, and we strive for a strong balanced between working from home and being on-site. We are open to discussion on how this arrangement could work for candidates not based in Hobart.

As a general guideline, our current approach for full-time staff nationwide involves a minimum of 2 days in the office and 3 days working from home. Any necessary adjustments on a week-to-week basis are managed between the individual and their leader. However, more significant changes require approval through a flexible work request. We welcome discussions with interested candidates regarding this flexibility.

Our preference is for individuals to be based in or around Hobart, or the North-West Coast area. If you have any enquiries about how this could work or if you would like to set up a phone call to discuss your current situation, please send a query to [email protected] using the subject line: Field Officer - Hobart enquiry via EthicalJobs.
