Job Description

FELLOWSHIP OVERVIEW

Toronto FC is committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion by eliminating barriers and accelerating the development and implementation of meaningful programs that have real impact in our community, with our fans and for our colleagues. Our environment values inclusivity and we are committed to creating positive change to address systemic issues in sport.

In line with this commitment, Toronto FC, in partnership with BMO, will provide a full-time, paid Fellowship opportunity to emerging talent who self-identify as a woman and have a passion for sport. We want to continue to advance representation of women in front-office, leadership positions through this unique opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on professional experience.

Working closely with leaders across the Toronto FC front office, this role will provide you with insight and learning across multiple areas of Team & Business Operations through rotations in:

  • Business Operations
  • Player Personnel (Roster/Cap Management, Scouting, Analytics)
  • Team Administration
  • Player Development & Safe Sport
  • Media Relations
  • TFC 2 & Academy Operations

This Fellowship will provide you with an outstanding opportunity to experience the sport, as well as offer your unique perspective to help influence the club. Travel and accommodation to required events, as well as some extended travel to games, training camps or other may be required. Costs associated with this will be covered in full, in addition to your salary, which will be paid semi-monthly. You will be required to work game days and given the nature of the organization, you should anticipate a need for flexibility beyond a traditional Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm work week as much of the learning and development occurs on event days. The experience will be immersive and the opportunities for development extensive.
