Wycombe Wanderers Sports & Education Trust (WWSET), the charitable arm of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club, is seeking an ambitious, adaptable and innovative candidate to fill the role of Female Football Officer.
Based at Adams Park, the home of Wycombe Wanderers FC, this is an exciting opportunity to join a talented team that are dedicated to engaging with as many people as possible in and around the Wycombe area, with the aim of improving levels of health, social inclusion, education, and sports participation.
The Female Football Officer will primarily be responsible for planning and delivering the Premier League Girls Programme. Delivered in partnership with The Football Association, the Premier League Girls programme aims to provide opportunities for females aged 11 and over to take part in the sport in a local community setting, and specifically to:
- Increase the number of women and girls playing football on a regular basis
