Griffith Team Leader opportunities are available to all Griffith Students

Each sport that competes at the 2018 Nationals is required to have a Griffith Team Leader (GTL) to assist in coordination and management of their team. In most cases, a student from each of a Brisbane and Gold Coast Campus will be appointed as a GTL for each sport.

As a GTL, you will assist Griffith University Team Management (UTMs) in ensuring that the team is well represented both on and off the field and the highest standards of sportsmanship and behaviour are upheld at all times. You would be responsible for ensuring that your team meets registration requirements and payment deadlines, communicating information amongst the team, ensuring team members perform at the best of their ability and a high standard of behaviour, conduct and sportsmanship is maintained at all times as well as being responsible for the promotion of 2018 Nationals.

Benefits of being a Griffith Team Leader

  • Training and Professional Development Opportunities
  • The opportunity to assist in the development of Griffith University sport programs, playing a role in providing pathways for sport through sporting clubs & 2018 Nationals representation.
  • Practical experience that will look great on your CV – written & verbal references can be provided post 2018 Nationals Div 1 & Div 2
  • Financial Subsidy – GTL’s will have their Griffith University packages subsidised. The subsidy will only be covered if the GTL attends all meetings, trainings, assists in the running of all promotional events and reaches personal KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators). The subsidy amount will be based on achieving percentage weighted KPI’s
