WE'RE HIRING!

We're not your average sports store. The SPORT Gallery is home The SPORT Archive, one of the most significant collections of North American sports photography, and is therefore more than a retail space. SPORT magazine started in 1946 – eight years prior to Sports Illustrated – and quickly trailblazed its way into the public consciousness. We keep SPORT’s memory alive by preserving over 250,000 original negatives and transparencies, and through our physical locations, which allow visitors to travel back in time and experience the golden era of sports.

The apparel, headwear, accessories, and books we feature are all designed to mirror what you see in the pages of SPORT and in the museum-quality prints on our walls (which we produce in-store in Toronto). Rather than offer “on-field” jerseys or other modern, easily found styles, we work with premium brands to create one-of-a-kind products that tell a story. Our goal is to stay true to our SPORT roots and to communicate the past. To work at The SPORT Gallery is to understand this connection and help tell our unique story.

The SPORT Gallery is hiring both full-time and part-time gallery sales associates and also baristas for our Arena coffee bar. We’re looking for hard-working, sales-driven, goal-oriented people who – most importantly – live for sport. We’re looking for people who “get it,” who understand that the final score is only one small part of the vast and compelling sporting landscape and can ensure this ethos is communicated in all that we do.

Job Openings are listed by location for Toronto and Vancouver. If you don't see an opening below, feel free to shoot us an email.
