Collingwood Football Club is one of the oldest sports clubs in Australia. It is also one of the most contemporary, diverse and innovative, with six elite sporting teams under the one roof at the superbly equipped Holden Centre.

Women’s sport has provided an exciting extension to our Club as we apply our high performance expertise across an additional four teams.

We are constantly looking for the right professionals to enable Collingwood to honour its past, succeed in the present, shape a prosperous future and proudly meet its responsibilities as a community leader.

This is your opportunity to join our female high performance sports landscape in the heart of Melbourne’s Olympic Park.


We are seeking a dynamic high performance leader to develop and drive the successful implementation of our High Performance Women Sport Strategy across our elite female teams in Netball & Women’s Football.

As an integral member of the club’s executive team you will lead and oversee all aspects of the club’s high performance activities across Collingwood Magpies Netball, ANL, AFLW and VFLW to ensure that Collingwood is considered a destination club both on and off the field.

The successful applicant will be highly regarded within the industry with a strong understanding of the performance drivers underpinning elite women’s sport. You will be instrumental in motivating and building a high performance framework including Sports Science, Strength and Conditioning, Sports Performance Psychology and Medical & Allied Health services to ensure that we are providing our team and athletes with every chance of success both on and off the court and field.

Our preferred candidate will have demonstrated experience in High Performance sport. Ideally, this will include work within elite female sports programs and experience working directly with female athletes.

You are a proactive strategic thinker with the ability to create programs, systems and embed culture to build sustainable performance. Your ability to lead and manage change through influence rather than authority will be a strength of your success, with energy, drive and enthusiasm underlining everything you do.

If you have a comprehensive background working closely athletes, coaches and technical specialists, as well executive management experience in business, sports administration, sports management or coaching, we would like to hear from you.

In return, we offer a highly competitive remuneration package and benefits, state of the art high performance facilities and a strong and vibrant cross club work culture.
