Who we are
Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club are proud to compete in the Premier League and play at home in our spectacular 30,000+ seater American Express Community Stadium. Premier League football is the most watched sports league worldwide, with an annual audience of over 1 billion people, in which we are thrilled for our men's first team to professionally compete. We are equally excited and proud of our women's first team who successfully compete in The FA Women's Super League, the top tier of women's football in England.
This job is no mean feat. You've heard that our first-class Women's team compete in the highest professional league possible and this is your opportunity to play a part, manage and influence their journey in the Women's Super League. The successful candidate will also play an integral leadership role in the strategic development of the Club's engaging and progressive female programme and be responsible for protecting and delivering the criteria related to the WSL and RTC licences.
What does the day to day look like?
Reporting to the chief operating officer, you will oversee the day-to-day operational responsibilities within Brighton and Hove Albion's Women's and Girls' programme including but not limited to; the Women's First Team (FA WSL), Dual Career Academy (DCA) team and FA Girls Regional Talent Club (RTC).
This is a collaborative role and you will need to manage and develop mutually beneficial relationships with key stakeholders e.g. Club Board, The FA, Sussex County FA, Crawley Town FC, TASS services, the community and grassroots clubs, club departments, sponsors and partners.
What can you expect?
This is a fast paced, varied and challenging role. We play to win, and we are looking for someone who can run with us! The Club are committed to developing you and will give you all the tools you need to succeed and to push forward women's football. We are known for our culture and values leading the way, and the right people will need to fit into that. You'll work hard, but the great thing about football is that you'll see the results.
What we need

Our ideal candidate will be committed to further enhancing the excellent reputation that our Women's and Girls' programme has built over the years.

The Club's core values guide all aspects of the way we behave, the business decisions we make, how we interact with our customers and colleagues alike and how we measure our performance.
