Adult Male Football Development Officer

(Based in Basingstoke)- Salary circa £24,000 - Fixed Term Contract to 30 June 2019

Can you make a difference to the future of grassroots football? Adult Grassroots Football is, after youth football, the largest area of football participation in England. 

However this form of the game is experiencing a period of change which in some leagues is leading to a loss of players, teams, clubs and divisions; there has been a 21% drop in teams since 2008/09. Squads are increasing in size and players are looking for wider opportunities to play with Small Sided Football, Flexi Football and Futsal growing in popularity.

Hampshire FA are looking for an individual with a passion for grassroots adult male or ‘park’ football to drive its development in the county. The successful candidate will be tasked with arresting the decline in participation, diversifying delivery and working with key stakeholders to improve the all-round experience for those involved. You need to be motivated, able to deliver a high quality programme meeting multiple deadlines, work in a team and demonstrate individual initiative. You should also have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be of graduate calibre and have experience in sports development.

Employed by Hampshire FA, you will be working countywide and be based out of our head office in Basingstoke. This position will be available from 1st October 2017 (or as soon as possible after this date) and is contracted until 30th June 2019. The closing date for applications is Friday 8th September 2017 at 5.15pm.
