The Game Plan:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an individual to be part of a successful, growing and ambitious community football club and commercial enterprise.

Harborough Town Football Club is an FA Charter Standard Community Club and a Nike Partner Club which is a volunteer led not for profit charitable trust and can trace its roots back to the season of 1975/76 and has been at its current location since the 1990s. The club provides the opportunity to play and enjoy football for the community with teams representation from u5s through to adult.

We are seeking a new team player (or players as job share arrangements will be considered) who want to be part of this success. The successful candidate(s) will need to be well organised, have the ability to work without close supervision in a role that will provide variety and a flexible working pattern.

To be part of the team you will need to have strong communication skills, both written and verbal, with attention and accuracy to the varied responsibilities that will be expected from this role. Whilst previous football administration experience may be desirable, as the right team member with the desired ethos, attitude and hunger to develop is more important as training will be given in this role where we expect to see personal development and confidence grow.
