The Sportability Employment Program for Women is a six-month project that will help a group of women with disability find employment in the sport and recreation sector.
Information for individuals:
During the program you will:
- be supported to apply for jobs or leadership roles (for example a position on a board) in the sport and recreation sector
- take part in work readiness workshops
- attend industry events and professional development workshops
- learn how to best use the leadership skills you have.
You are expected to commit 10-20 hours of your time per month during the program, to make sure you have the best chance of being offered employment with one of our partner organisations.
It will not cost you anything to take part.
The program will:
- help you find employment and leadership opportunities in the sector
- support you to build and expand on your leadership capabilities
- give you the opportunity to attend industry events and professional development workshops
- give you the opportunity to network with industry professionals and hear about employment pathways in the sport and recreation sector.
Who can apply?
- identifies as female
- identifies as having disability
- has completed some type of leadership, personal development or capacity building program.
It would be ideal if you are passionate about sport and recreation or have previous experience in this area – but it’s not strictly necessary.
All types of sport and recreation need off-field as well as on-field skills that come from different life, business and administration experiences.
If you have the drive and determination to take the next step, we want to hear from you!
The program will run between January – June 2019.
