Position Vacant – National Technology Officer


Position Vacant – National Technology Officer

The ABF is continuing to move forward on a number of strategic fronts as part of an overall plan to grow duplicate bridge in Australia.  Bridge, like many other sporting, social and recreational activities, is facing significant threats to its growth and viability. 

The ABF therefore has an immediate, strategic need to appoint a National Technology Officer with the vision to oversee the design, development and implementation of a national technology strategy over the period 2019-2021.  Key duties of the position include:

  • to identify the key technology risks facing bridge in Australia;
  • to develop a three-year strategy and roadmap to mitigate those risks;
  • to work with the ABF’s national coordinators in the areas of teaching, marketing, directing and organising our major tournaments and developing youth bridge to address their emerging technology needs relating to key areas such as:
    • website and App development;
    • email distribution and database management;
    • an online bridge presence for playing, marketing, learning and teaching;
    • social media;
    • scoring systems; and
    • club and event management including entries and payment systems
  • ensuring the ABF has sufficient control over the ABF’s critical software IP and hardware systems either directly or through licence agreements.
  • to work with interested parties including the private sector, and international bridge authorities to develop a cooperative approach to addressing technology risks.

Applications, in the form of a statement of claim and previous work experience, are invited from suitably qualified persons to undertake the above key duties.  Knowledge of bridge and bridge events is an advantage.

The ABF envisages this being a part-time consulting position.  Remuneration is negotiable depending on previous experience but a range of $20,000 to $25,000 is initially envisaged.  Applications should be submitted by email to the ABF Secretary at abf_secretary@live.com.au on or before 15th June 2018.
