Touch Football Game Development Officer (Full Time)

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. 

The ideal candidate for the Game Development Officer role is someone who has community sport experience and is looking to progress their career in the community sports industry, specifically in Grass Roots sports development. This person has an understanding of the primary and secondary schools systems and excels in a school based setting. 

If you are keen to grow the game and enhance the experience of touch football, please submit by 11pm on Sunday 3 March to State Participation Manager Rob Pidgeon via [email protected] ;

  1. A cover letter addressing each of the 4 sections of the Selection Criteria listed on page 4 of the Position Description
  2. Your CV clearly outlining your experience in community sport development/community coaching
  3. Current references are also required

The application process may include a shortlist, phone interview and face to face interview with a pre-interview task. 

Role is an immediate start and therefore consideration will be given to those who indicate as such. 

NSWTA encourages Regional based applicants (specifically Southern and South West NSW) and female applicants. There is significant regional travel and as such a fully maintained company vehicle is provided. 

Casual Touch Development Officer


The main role of the Touch Football Development Officer is to grow participation in Touch Football by delivering the First Try program to students within the parameters of their learning and expected program outcomes.


Aside from teaching the game of Touch Football, your other key role will be the provision of a fun and positive experience. We don’t anticipate that you will be able to teach these kids all the skills of the game in the limited time you have with them, but we do hope that you can provide an experience with them that ignites an enjoyment for the game and a desire to continue their participation after the completion of the program.
