We’re changing lives through football and we’d like you to be part of our team.

Are you a motivated and hardworking individual who has a keen interest in developing disability football across Cheshire?

Are you driven to provide a high quality experience of football to underrepresented groups in Cheshire?

Are you passionate about ensuring Football is for ALL? Yes? Read on….

A bit about us:

We govern Football across Cheshire and have been doing that since 1878 (yes, that long!) putting our clubs, leagues, players, coaches and referees at the heart of our delivery. We support, develop and grow the game in Cheshire for each and every format of Football. It’s our Responsibility to act with Integrity and Empathy, leading as a Team to provide Inspiration For All.

These are values. This is our mission

A bit about the role:

We want a strategic thinker who can establish links with partner organisations, clubs, leagues and volunteers to service existing and create new playing opportunities for underrepresented groups. Disability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or age should not be a barrier to participate in the game. So we’d like you to join us in removing those barriers and engaging with our diverse communities to immerse them in our work and gain their insight into how we can support them in their football journey. 

What’s the deal?

We’re looking for the best candidate who can support the delivery of our volunteer workforce and strategically position us to be leading the way in ensuring football is for all. You’ll get the chance to work for a progressive and innovative County FA and work closely with colleagues nationally at The FA. If that wasn’t enough, we’ll pay you too! We’d like to offer the successful candidate:

  • Initial 6 month contract covering secondment (with a view to making this permanent)
  • Competitive remuneration (£20,000-£24,000 pro rata) depending on experience.
  • Flexible working in a positive and constructive environment.
  • Development opportunities in a fast paced organisation.
