Working at the ASC

The Australian Sports Commission provides an opportunity for employees to combine their love and appreciation of sport, exercise and good health with their work, to assist all Australians to gain from and enjoy their involvement in sport, regardless of age or location.

The Commission was established via the Australian Sports Commission Act in 1989, and is partly funded by the Australian Government. The organisational chart shows the three divisions; the Australian Institute of Sport, Participation & Sustainable Sport, and Corporate Operations. Within these divisions various programs operate to achieve our mission: 

'to enrich the lives of all Australians through sport’ 

The Commission has offices located in over 15 locations Australia wide with the Head Office in Canberra. A training facility is in Varese, Italy.

Employment is under an Enterprise Agreement that details employment conditions and rates of pay, and a code of conduct that identifies the values and standards expected of all employees.
