Flexible work requirements


  • Organisations that support and acknowledge the sporting pursuits of players, and ensure that they offer the right cultural fit to allow our athletes to thrive in their working environment.
  • AFLW Players train and play up to 20 hours a week during pre-season and the home and away season. To balance a non-playing career, flexibility in start and end times is essential to support them to attend mid-week training and games. During the off-season, they may wish to increase hours. Each athlete will have their own skillset and flexibility requirements.

Other flexible options

  • Ability to work remotely or hybrid.
  • Option to swap workdays or access unpaid leave for game days e.g., for Friday games or where interstate travel is required.
  • Ability to scale up and down hours or days during the year e.g., potential to work more hours in the off-season (Dec – April).
  • Compressed working week options.
  • Option to job share.
