Women in Football (WIF) is recruiting for a Development Manager.
WIF is a network of women, men and non-binary people working in and around the football industry. Our vision is an industry where all can thrive and reach their full potential.
We support and champion our peers. We equip individuals and the football industry with the knowledge, expertise and collective support that drives real change. We work pragmatically in partnership with institutions, organisations and individuals to help them progress.
We are a small organisation with a big voice and a big impact. We have over 4,500 highly engaged members and we have huge ambitions to change the face of football forever. We are at an exciting stage of development.
The Development Manager will help support and grow WIF’s expanding membership, and WIF’s new Corporate Membership and Consultancy. You can read about examples of our Corporate Membership and our Consultancy projects here and here.
The Development Manager’s responsibilities include:
The WIF membership (individuals)
WIF Consultancy and Corporate Membership
The following are the characteristics and experience that we’re looking for:
You’ll be UK based and able to work in the UK. We are unable to sponsor visas.
This is a full-time job and you’ll work from home: we have always been a successful remote-working team, even before the pandemic - and despite distance we are a small and tightly-knit team. You’ll report to the WIF CEO.
Diversity, equality and inclusion are in WIF’s DNA and our commitment to them is what drives us. We celebrate multiple approaches and multiple points of view, and everyone is welcome. If you work with us, you’ll be empowered to bring your whole, authentic self to work - to be you. We know that this is how you will thrive, and that if you thrive, WIF will thrive.
We want our workplace to look like the communities we serve. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and especially encourage applications from people whose ethnicity is underrepresented in the football workforce, people who identify as LGBTQi+, disabled people, people of faith, men, and people who have experienced exclusion or marginalisation.
We want this recruitment process to be as accessible as possible, but know that there might be more that we can do, particularly if you have experienced exclusion, disadvantage or discrimination, or if you have particular accessibility needs. We would be happy to provide any reasonable adjustments that you may require - please get in touch with us, and we can think together about how to make this process easier for you.
How to apply
Please send us your CV and a covering letter explaining why you want the role of Development Manager at WIF, and how you meet the characteristics and experience we are looking for. Send these to email@example.com by 5pm on Friday 19 March. Interviews will take place week commencing Monday 29 March.
