Our purpose – to lead high-performance sport to enable extraordinary moments that enrich lives.

The power of success – we believe sporting success makes people happy. It creates a powerful platform to inspire and effect lasting positive change for individuals and society.

The power of connection – we believe sport changes how individuals see their future, how communities connect with each other and how our nation is seen by the world. Sport has the power to make us all prouder, happier and more connected to each other.

The power of collaboration – we believe the way to achieve sustained sporting success and positive impact is through working together as one high-performance sporting community.

We would like welcome someone who is interested and enthusiastic about what we do and has aspirations to serve in a public body. We are committed to supporting our Apprentice every step of the way and hope that the experience will be valuable, enjoyable and a great practical development opportunity.
