Insight & Research Officer - Voluntary

Manchester County FA has an exciting opportunity to gain experience working as part of a County FA in a bid to improve grassroots football.

Following the release of last week's FA Chairman's commission report, MCFA is looking to recruit a volunteer Insight & Research Officer.

Aimed at transforming grassroots football, Greg Dyke last week laid out plans to ensure young, English players can develop to their full potential by placing the focus firmly on coaching and facilities.

Be it quality or accessibility, facilities will be key to how the English grassroots game now moves forwards and MCFA is keen to enhance our work in this area.

As such, MCFA is looking to recruit a new Insight & Research Officer who will be required to gather and interpret a range of research and data sources in order to play a crucial role in providing intelligence around participation patterns, football facilities and pitch provision in Greater Manchester.

The successful applicant must be committed to undertaking field and desk-based research and must be able to demonstrate excellent planning, interpersonal and administration skills and possess the ability to analyse data sources.

The role of Insight & Research Officer will be flexible in hours to meet the needs of both the applicant and Manchester County FA. The hours and role on offer include the need for the successful applicant to work flexibly, which may include evenings and weekends. The hours will be a maximum of 10 hours per week, but the successful applicant may be required to work additional hours to meet the peak needs of the County FA.

To apply

Immediate applications are sought. To apply, please send a CV, covering letter and completed Equality & Diversity Monitoring Form to Daniel Green, Chief Operating Officer, Manchester County FA at
Shortlisting and interview will be considered immediately on application. The closing date for recruitment is Monday 3 November 2014.

Manchester County FA is committed to equality of opportunity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. Manchester County FA’s Equality Statement is available on request.
