The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) is the Australian Government body responsible for protecting the health of athletes and the integrity of Australian sport through engagement, deterrence, detection and enforcement activities aimed at minimising the risk of doping.
ASADA is in the process of hiring a number of Casual Doping Control Chaperones in a number of locations: Brisbane/Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Townsville, Newcastle, Wollongong, Canberra, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth.
As a representative of ASADA you will be responsible for maintaining and enhancing its reputation and relationship with athletes and sports officials.
As a Casual Doping Control Chaperone you will play a key role throughout the sample collection session. The Chaperone is the person who spends the most time with the athlete and as such this role involves irregular work patterns and varied locations. This role should be viewed as providing a supplementary source of income rather than a regular source of income.
All Chaperones work alongside ASADA Doping Control Officers (DCOs) who organise and manage the sample collection session. DCOs and Chaperones work in a team to conduct sample collection sessions in strict accordance with the relevant procedures so all athletes are treated in a fair and equitable manner.
An interest in sports is not a requirement of this role, however it is imperative that you are mature, confident and present yourself in a professional manner, have strong attention to detail, an ability to follow process and an ability to work flexibly as part of a team.
The fact that Chaperone work schedules are irregular in nature means successful applicants must have a high level of availability (especially during the day). Therefore this role is particularly suited to medical professionals (aged care workers, nurses, pathology technicians, pharmacy assistants etc.), students (with an interest in medicine or sports administration) emergency service professionals, shift workers and retirees.
You will need to demonstrate a fair level of fitness and an ability to work outside of normal working hours. Please note: Due to the nature of testing schedules, hours will be irregular and intermittent.
- You must be an Australian Citizen.
- A positive attitude and reliability.
- Well-developed communication and interpersonal skills.
- Mature, confident and professional manner.
- An ability to follow process.
- An ability to work as part of a team.
- A minimum of 18 years of age.
Applicants must pass a National Police Check and obtain and maintain relevant Working with Children Checks in accordance with State requirements.
If you are interested in playing an active role in supporting ASADA's vision and make a contribution to the integrity of Australian sport you are encouraged to apply.
