About the Football Foundation

Established in 2000, the Football Foundation is one of the largest sports charities in the World. It is a partnership between the Premier League, The FA and the Government, who between them contribute more than £60 million per year towards the development of football facilities across the country, 40% of which is targeted at the 20% most deprived communities.

The role

The Administration Support Officer will work within a team of three and provide a range of administrative services across the Foundation.

This is a great role for someone who is interested in gaining experience in the charity sector and in grant management, with opportunities to learn and develop in a supportive environment.

The post holder will respond to the administrative needs of the Foundation’s departments and provide support for our Grant Management projects. This will include being the first point of contact for external enquiries, logging and assessing applications, sending out correspondence to applicants and grantees, arranging meetings for Grant Managers, assisting with office management duties, booking travel and accommodation as well as performing other ad hoc duties.

Working within a multi-disciplined team and delivering tasks collectively and effectively, this role also involves the undertaking of a continuous review of all relevant business processes with a view to making them more efficient.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an effective multi-tasker who is able to work both collaboratively and independently. You will have some experience of general office administration but most importantly you will have great customer service skills and will be a good team player. You will also be organised, highly motivated and proactive in long and short-term tasks.

What can we offer you?

You will start on 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays (which increases after 2 years), plus additional time off to volunteer. We also offer a generous pension scheme (8% employer contribution), free health care provision, a monthly gym subsidy, interest-free season ticket loan, death in service benefit and access to selected match tickets.

We are committed to helping our staff maintain a healthy work-life balance, so offer flexible working hours around core hours to help you achieve that.
