Exciting new career opportunity for an Admin Assistant at Women in Football

Women in Football is Hiring! Read below for full details about the role.

Women in Football is looking for an administrative assistant, to work remotely for the organisation for 24 hours per week. This is a fixed term contract for six months and will pay the London Living Wage (2020: £10.75 per hour).

Women in Football is a network of professionals working in and around the football industry, who support and champion their peers. We share professional expertise, challenge discrimination and celebrate women’s achievements in a bid to bring about a change in attitude to women working in the industry and address the gender imbalance in football. We have a growing membership of over 3,000 supporters and, thanks to our partnership with Barclays, are now looking to reach more women working in football than ever before.

The Women in Football team meets in central London 1-2 times per month, so being based within easy travel of central London would be a benefit but is not essential.

We are seeking someone who is comfortable answering emails and phone calls, putting together presentations and reports, writing documents for the Women in Football board, setting up and booking meetings, taking minutes and reporting back to committees.

Familiarity with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint would be of use, as would knowledge of social media platforms. We use Slack, Zoom, and Google Drive, so some experience of these would be a plus. However, if you don’t have experience of all of these, please don’t be put off from applying.

Key tasks include:

  • Responding to emails and phone calls, and routing these to the appropriate person on the Women in Football team
  • Scheduling and managing meetings
  • Attending meetings (usually remotely), taking minutes and sharing these after the event
  • Collating and issuing invoices for Women in Football paid events
  • Assisting in the set up and management of Women in Football’s events calendar
  • Filing documents and managing Women in Football’s shared drive
  • Performing research tasks
  • Writing reports
  • Making travel arrangements
  • Recording expenses
  • Maintaining contact lists
  • Supporting the Women in Football team in other ad hoc duties as required

Key skills include:

  • Organised, with good time management skills and the ability to prioritise work
  • Happy to work remotely, with some travel into London/around the UK
  • Good written and verbal communication skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel
  • Familiarity with social media platforms
  • Happy using – or learning to use – Zoom, Slack, and Google Drive

Women in Football is committed to providing opportunities for all women either working in the industry or looking to do so. With that in mind, we are particularly keen to hear from those who are under-represented within football, which includes those from the BAME community and lower socio-economic backgrounds.

We also want to hear from you if you don’t have all of the key skills listed above – we are looking for someone who can translate their enthusiasm for Women in Football into a great fit for this role.

How to apply:

Please send your CV and covering letter, explaining why you’re the right person for this role, to info@womeninfootball.co.uk. Closing date is Friday 20 March and interviews will take place week commencing Monday 30 March.
