Join the team
At the Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR), we talk the talk but we also walk the walk.
We know that sport and recreation has the power to change lives for the better, including our working lives, and promote active, healthy lifestyles for staff as well as clients.
The work of our department is about more than sport and recreation — we are the real department of health, education and crime prevention.
Research shows that participation in sport and recreation not only brings the obvious health and physical benefits, but also results in better educational outcomes for children, reduced crime and anti-social behaviour and stronger communities.
Typical working environments of today are contributing to inactive lifestyles, stress and alarmingly high rates of preventable disease, and DSR is committed to bucking this trend.
In our workplace, physical activity helps to create happier and healthier staff who work as a team and are passionate about the activities and lifestyles our department promotes.
We have a management culture that values and encourages participation in sport and recreation, which is supported by our corporate health and wellbeing program and flexible working hours and leave options.
On average, we spend about one third of our waking hours at work — so why shouldn’t we enjoy them?
