Role description

About us

Bloomsbury Football Foundation uses the power of football to improve the lives of children and young people in London. Established as a charity in 2018, we work to support children and young people aged 4 to 18 through the provision of football activities, enabling them to live active lifestyles, and pursue their full potential.

Bloomsbury Football Foundation aims to ensure that every child can take part in our programmes – regardless of their ability to pay or play. We provide an experience and environment that is professional, competitive, and enjoyable for all players, coaches, and parents.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young people, and adults at risk of harm with whom we work, and we expect all our team to share this commitment. As part of this commitment, we carry out basic disclosure checks on all employees and require all roles working directly with children, young people, and adults at risk of harm to have an enhanced DBS check. This post is subject to an extensive disclosure check.
