Want to be part of the Australian Open?
If you are interested in being part of one of world’s greatest Grand Slam tournaments, you’ve come to the right place. Applications for employment at Australian Open 2016 will be live from 1 July 2015. Serve us your online application through our job board on the Tennis Australia or Australian Open websites. Stay up-to-date with opportunities that may arise on these websites as well as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
In order to be considered, applicants must have unrestricted availability over the tournament period. You must also be able to commit to attending training sessions and inductions, held at various times throughout the year. These sessions are fun as well as informative, and equip you with valuable skills and knowledge prior to the commencement of your official tennis duties. While the tournament runs for two weeks, some roles require longer engagement.
All applicants must be an Australian citizen or hold a valid work visa, as advised by the Department of Immigration and Border Control. If you have any further queries about Australian Open employment, please email us at [email protected]
