Check out our Noticeboard page for a list of clubs and leagues looking for volunteers.

Opportunities may also be promoted and published on our social media sites and on the homepage of our website if a club or league writes in to us with opportunities that are available. 

As much time as you would like. Some roles can be carried out with as little as an hour a week, so there’s definitely a role out there for you!

You can take a quiz that matches you to your preferred role based on your responses. One such quiz is on Join in UK's website; take the quiz here and find out more.

Alternatively, if you know what you want to do but want to find out where the opportunities are, you can also search for opportunities here

If you'd like to contact us we would be more than happy to point you in the direction of opportunities so please do get in contact with us.

There are lots of different roles required to run a football club, from physical roles such as coach, to behind the scenes roles such as secretary.

Most volunteering roles in grassroots football clubs can be undertaken with no experience. The only roles where there is a requirement for qualifications is when there is constant contact with youth players (Under 18 and below), such as coach, manager, physio and welfare officer.

Volunteers can be as young as 12. Young leaders can also complete the Junior Football Leaders course. If your club would like to host a Junior Football Leaders Course, please contact the Education Officer, Alice Weaving for details.
