Data Science/ Analyst (business intelligence expertise)

We're always looking for people that think in numbers and are passionate about understanding why people make decisions to become and remain active. Why they join and stay as members of a gym or leisure facility, or participate in certain sports. We are looking for someone that is keen to positively influence millions of lives.


You should be able to discover the 'story' that sits behind data, and identify patterns and trends - or possible trends that require further consideration. We're looking for someone who is excited about finding solutions that create successful organisations and businesses. 


You need to be exceptional with Excel and SQL databases and have excellent English. You should also have a knowledge of other database types and approaches to analysis, and have effective data processing techniques. This includes  experience in statistical analysis, using correlation, linear/multi-linear and non-linear regression, factor analysis, data extrapolation, interpolation and optimisation. 


A background in creating and working with big datasets and basic programming experience will also be very useful (ability to create and run database queries including a good grasp for SQL and Python). A relevant math/ data/ statistics/ economic/ programming degree or masters is required, and 1-2 years professional experience is preferred.

Role in our team

Initially the role will involve working with data to test hypothesis, presenting conclusions, then challenging these initial conclusions with the rest of the team. You will reach a level where you will be able to create the hypothesis yourself, appreciating how the community sport, leisure and physical activity sector is evolving, and play a key role in progressing the value we provide our partners. You will be at the forefront of progressing ever evolving predictive data models that support the analysis of high profile investment scenarios, and inform key decisions made by facility operators, local and federal government and national sport organisations.


We invest in each member of the team. A minimum $1,000 budget is allocated per team member for relevant professional development each year.

Role with our partners

To make sophisticated analysis appear straightforward, and conclusions useable and relevant. You will be required to develop relevant and actionable quantitive outputs requiring and strong data visualisation background, and have the ability to adapt to different contexts and changing circumstances, often at the last minute! Ultimately you'll be a team player - our data modelling is part of a collaboration which requires extensive logistical thinking and discussion. 

Role in the sector

We believe in championing talent. We see this role having the ability to influence millions of lives across Australia and New Zealand, and create more active populations. We want our partner clients to be recognised for driving successful organisations, we want our team to be famous for being brilliant with data which has played a role in guiding this success.

Boxes ticked. Next steps...

We're looking for a talented data analyst that's able to work from our Sydney office, and is flexible to travel across Australia and New Zealand when required.


Competitive salary available alongside a fast track progression plan. 21 days annual holiday allowance.
