It is important that you have excellent interpersonal skills and that you have the ability to positively influence at all levels.

This post is Full Time on a fixed term contract for three years with a view to it being extended thereafter. A job profile for this position is detailed in the document below.

Whilst the role is office based you will be required to have a flexible approach to hours worked as these might include weekend and possibly unsocial hours.

Should any applicant be currently associated with a Northamptonshire FA affiliated club in any official capacity, the Association reserves the right to ask them to relinquish that role should the application be successful.
