The project is looking to take the learnings from the AFL’s segmentation framework and apply them to a community health and fitness setting.

The project partners are seeking a higher-degrees-by-research student with exceptional research potential who has a strong desire to work with industry to improve community health and fitness industry management practices.

Top up funding may also be accessible for the right candidate.

Demonstrated ability in the following areas is favoured:

2. An interest in, and knowledge of, the health and fitness industry
3. Work experience in organisations relevant to this project (such as fitness centres, local councils or professional sporting organisations).

Aligned Leisure is a 100% owned subsidiary company of the Richmond Football Club, established as a vehicle to manage the operations of Richmond’s health, fitness and leisure business activities. Aligned Leisure currently manages 8 Aquatic & Recreation facilities in the Cardinia Shire.
