Football Services Officer (Discipline) Vacancy

Closing date: Thursday 11th May 2023

Are you a graduate searching for your first career in sport or just a football enthusiast itching for a career change? This job might be for you. 

Grassroots football is our bread and butter. It’s an incredible, dynamic environment for players and volunteers and it’s our job to support everyone who makes our number one sport happen week in week out. 

We employ a small team of 20 people across a range of roles including facility development, coach and referee development, club and league development, safeguarding, equality, inclusion and diversity and commercial delivery. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic discipline ninja who thrives under pressure and who is enthused by the chance to manage all aspects of football discipline through exceptional customer service. 

As you probably can imagine, football discipline isn’t regarded as the sexiest part of the game, but it is vital in ensuring that players, volunteers, and spectators can enjoy the game in safe, respectful environments. 

Discipline conversations can be challenging so we are looking for resilient, respectful people to lead with confidence and conviction. 

Working closely with the Discipline Lead, you will be at the heart of our regulatory team managing all disciplinary administration relating to offences including red cards, yellow cards, misconducts and, where necessary, conduct investigations into alleged on field and off field offences, including serious cases such as violent conduct and discriminatory language and/or behaviour.

CONTRACT TYPE: Fixed Term until 30th June 2024 (this period is in line with the current strategy cycle. The role is likely to be extended into the next strategy cycle 2024-2028).
