Part time Contractor role

Western United is a Football Club that represents the people from the west of Victoria – urban, regional and rural. Established in 2019, it’s built on ‘dreaming big’ and growing a community of people brought together through the power of sport.

In its short three-year history, United has evolved from having only an A-League Men’s team to a Club that will field an A-League Women’s team in the 2022/23 season, a developing Academy Program that will provide opportunity for many footballers in the West, a fantastic community program for kids in the United Football Program and both Frame Football and Powerchair teams.

As an organisation our values of Growth, Respect, Effort, Audacity & Togetherness underpin everything we do, both on the pitch and off it. We believe these values embody the spirit of, and reflect the aspirational, hard-working, and diverse nature of the people of the West of Victoria.

We’re on an ambitious journey together as we build our forever home in Tarneit, the Wyndham City Stadium Precinct. This precinct will create the first city built on sport in Australia, unite future generations and build sporting teams that everyone in the West will be proud of forever.

The Opportunity

We have a fantastic opportunity within our Junior Academy Program for a Strength & Conditioning Coach to work with our Under 14, 15, 16 & 18 teams.
