Current Vacancies

At Sport Aberdeen our people underpin everything we do – they are our biggest asset.

We aim to attract, develop and retain the best talent available. Putting our people first enables us to provide quality services to our customers, as well as continually working to create new opportunities in sport and physical activity for everyone in Aberdeen City and the surrounding areas.

Committed to providing a variety of training opportunities and support, we nurture our staff, coaches and volunteers to ensure they are well-trained, motivated, confident and capable. Training and rewarding those who are committed and enthusiastic in achieving their goals and helping others do the same, is part of what makes Sport Aberdeen a fantastic team to be a part of.

We believe in fair compensation and a healthy work-life balance, with a competitive benefits package, including base pay, health cash plan, paid time off, and discounted access to our ‘get active’ membership.

Relief Opportunities

Sport Aberdeen relies heavily on relief workers to coach our programme of activities and to cover the leave commitments of our permanent staff, including leisure assistants and receptionists.

A relief worker’s hours of work will vary according to the needs of each venue. As a relief worker, the organisation cannot guarantee work, you will work on a relief basis by mutual agreement, whenever required by the needs of the venue. There is no obligation on Sport Aberdeen to provide you with work and likewise there is no obligation on you to accept any work offered. You will enter into a relief worker agreement.

It is important to note that you must specify what type of relief position you wish to apply for on your application form (Relief Leisure Attendant etc.).

We review our relief applications on a monthly basis.
