Profiling the Australian high performance & sports science workforce
(Profiling der Beschäftigten im australischen Hochleistungssport und in der Sportwissenschaft)
Australia is viewed as leader in the field of sports science, with Australian sports scientists highly sought after and respected worldwide (1). However, despite the important contribution of sports scientists to the development of professional sport in Australia (1-3), we know little about these sport professionals who play an important role in the development and success of athletes, teams and sport organisations. This report provides a more formal understanding of the high performance and sports science workforce with the purpose of informing the policy development of Australias sport governing bodies and education providers to inform sport management practices that will enhance the support and development of current and future high performance managers and sports scientists. The data presented in this report provides
valuable insight about the scope of the profession to enable further development of strategic plans for the industry.
The research team of the present study set out to better understand the Australian High Performance and Sports Science workforce by examining: 1) the size and capacity of the high performance and sport science workforce; 2) what roles high performance managers and sport scientists perform; 3) their salary and conditions of employment; 4) their work environment; 5) their training and professional development; 6) their career pathways and future intensions; and 7) their opinions about their profession. We also wanted to know about the human resource management practices of sport organisations that employ members of the high performance and sport science workforce.
