The Swedish Football Association is Sweden's largest specialist sports association with almost 3,000 member associations. These together have approximately 1,000,000 members, of which approximately 500,000 are active players. The Swedish Football Association has 200 employees who sit in new premises next to the National Arena Friends Arena in Arenastaden, Solna. The Swedish Football Association, which is a non-profit association, together with its companies, has an annual turnover of approximately SEK 700 million. One of Swedish football's strategic orientations is to push for gender equality and diversity within Swedish football and to strengthen our position as an important social actor in these matters.

Swedish Football today sees a development in society where people end up on the sidelines, where individuals do not have the same opportunities as others and thus come further and further from the labor market and education. Many individuals – young and old – who are far from employment also have little chance of changing their situation. Swedish football wants to be a fellow player and, together with other stakeholders, increase opportunities for employment in the form of work, education or for individuals to approach the labor market.

Now the Swedish Football Association is looking for a project economist/administrator for our EU project Reboot - football for jobs, an employment project to get more individuals who are far from work or education back into employment. The project is ongoing and is conducted in Gothenburg and Umeå in collaboration with our football districts, associations, businesses and the respective municipality.
