Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation (MFCF) is the Club’s independent charity set up in 1996 by Chairman Steve Gibson. We use the power of the MFC brand to engage with the community to provide opportunities for disadvantaged young people and adults to maximise their potential to achieve.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity to be involved in the Premier League Kicks project, working with a professional football club charity and local communities to engage and inspire young people. We are looking for a professional, enthusiastic, self-motivated individual to work in the local community inspiring and engaging young people from all backgrounds in the importance of health, wellbeing and having a positive attitude through the power of football.

Have experience of delivering educational workshops and sports provision within disadvantaged communities
Possess exceptional communication and organisational skills, both written and verbal
Have a good level of understanding of social inclusion and the issues facing young people from disadvantaged communities
Hold an Emergency First Aid Certificate and Certificate in Safeguarding, or be willing to work towards achieving these accreditations
Have a full driving licence and access to their own vehicle
Hold a Level 1 coaching qualification in any sport
Be eligible to work in the UK
