What makes a Football Unites team member a top scorer?

  • You are really interested in the work that Football Unites are doing and you’re keen to learn more, even if that means making the odd mistake!
  • You’ve already got some experience in delivering sports sessions to kids aged between 8-16 years old and you’re a qualified FA Coach.
  • You absolutely love football - you play it, you watch it and you want to help youngsters find their passion with it too and help them use football as a vehicle to support them to achieve their goals
  • You’ve had some experience with managing schedules/staff/teams in the past - maybe this was at school/college/Uni.
  • You enjoy teamwork but you’re equally happy to work remotely and independently if you need to.
