We are seeking to recruit an Operations Officer to carry out all aspects of the work allocated to the Operations team within our organisation. A general job description is attached.

To join the team and be successful, the individual must be able to demonstrate an understanding of the role on offer and how their expertise and experience will enable them to meet the essential and desirable criteria within the role.

The interview panel must be convinced of the individual’s passion, inspiration, and professionalism for the role.

The successful applicant will report to the Operations Manager.

Applicants should be computer literate, ideally have a football interest though not essential, with presentation and communication skills capable of carrying out and implementing administration systems.

Due to the nature of this role, the successful candidate may be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check through The FA DBS process.
