JOB DESCRIPTION

Football Australia is the national governing body for football in Australia. As Australia’s largest team-based sport by participation, and with two of Australia’s most loved national teams in the Westfield Matildas and Socceroos, Football Australia is entering a period of change and transformation for the sport across the domestic and global landscape.

Football Australia took transformative steps in 2020 and released its ‘XI Principles - for the future of Australian football’, which advances eleven principles that underpin a bold and innovate 15-year vision and new strategic agenda for Australian football.

At the centre of the XI Principles is the recognition of the strength and diversity of the Australian football family. We are a melting pot of two million participants represented by over 200 different cultures. No other sport within the Australian sporting landscape offers the type of inherent diversity which football does. This diversity in culture, ideas and experience makes us strong and prepares us well to exploit the opportunities that are embodied in the XI Principles.

Principle I of the XI Principles encompasses building a national football identity. Within this principle, we have committed to connecting with our indigenous heritage and our diverse history. This will include the development and growth of indigenous football that creates opportunities in football for indigenous talent whilst also making a meaningful contribution to reconciliation.

The power of sport is incredible, where sport can be utilised as a vehicle for social change. The vision is for Australian football to be recognized as a leader in Indigenous sporting programs and the reconciliation process for Indigenous Australians.

Football Australia is currently seeking a part-time (with the potential to become full-time) Manager - Indigenous Football, starting March 2021 and based in Sydney. The Manager – Indigenous Football is a key member of the Women’s Football, World Cup Legacy & Inclusion team, tasked with leading on Indigenous Football measures outlined within the ‘XI Principles for the future of Australian Football’. To become a more connected game, there is a drive for change and a need for our indigenous communities to be reflected in the Australian football identity, with stronger references to the inherent diversity of the Australian football community, especially the Indigenous heritage.

This role will take the lead in developing and implementing Football Australia’s ‘Reflect’ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), working closely with a range of internal and external stakeholders to proactively develop strategies for reconciliation initiatives. This role will also be responsible for facilitating the development and implementation of a National Indigenous Football Strategy, through consulting with key members and stakeholders within the football community.

Football Australia is looking for a leader who is:

  • Passionate about making an impact within the Indigenous community through sport
  • Able to build internal capabilities and support the growth of indigenous football, by developing programs, increase opportunities and provide greater access to the football ecosystem;
  • Experienced in a reconciliation leadership position, with mentoring and support opportunities available;
  • Qualified in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies or appropriate experiences;
  • Culturally aware and understands the challenges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people face, and experience in implementing programs to meet these needs; and
  • Experienced in overseeing and leading a variety of community programs and be able to demonstrate experience in engaging and consulting with Indigenous communities.

The Recruitment & Selection Panel will include experts from business enterprise with indigenous heritage links and will include Football Australia National Team Indigenous players.
