About the job
Bloomsbury Football Foundation is changing the game, and we need great people to help us on our journey!

In late 2023, Bloomsbury Football Foundation published its new 5-year game plan with the goal of providing high quality, football provision for 20,000 young people every week.

A fundamental part of this game plan lies in Bloomsbury Football Communities. Bloomsbury Football Communities are full-scale community projects that place local roots at the heart of our approach. Communities are a hyper-localised approach to football provision – they remove locations as a barrier to accessing the benefits of regular football sessions. Bloomsbury Communities are a community-led, place-based solution for high-quality, inclusive football, encouraging young people to get on the pitch and be more active. Each community will have a wide range of provision including regular extra-curricular football sessions for young people aged 3-16, school provision, open sessions and a holiday camp.

As a Region Lead, the successful candidate will be responsible for the management, direction and growth of their region, with each region having 1-4 localised ‘Communities’ by 2028. This role will be off-pitch and there will be no requirement to coach.
