Here at The FA we're passionate about making football accessible ‘For All’. We know that it takes talented people of all types to run an organisation like ours, and this is exactly why we created our 2 week 'Operations' Work Experience programme... to give you a chance to see exactly how we do it.

About the programme / How it works

Our Operations Work Experience is a 2 week long programme that gives you a chance to experience what it's like to work across 3 different departments at the FA - [List departments].

You'll get to meet different team members and provide feedback presentations at the end of your time with each team. You'll also get a chance to ask questions and find out about the people who work here, what they do, what they love, the challenges they face... and any advice they might have.

If you're looking to gain real knowledge and understanding of what goes on behind the scenes at a globally recognised organisation this could be the perfect Shot for you.

About you / Who we are looking for...

Whilst you will need to have at least three A-Levels (or equivalent) at Grade C or above, you don't have to be a football fan to apply for this opportunity. It takes all types of people to make the FA/Wembley Stadium the place it is, so no worries if you're not football crazy - we still want to hear from you. We're also looking for people who have...

  • Standout interpersonal, teamwork and organisational skills
  • Drive and motivation that sets you apart from others.
  • Passion, interest and commitment to the varied work that we do
  • Are confident individual - happy to get involved, share your opinions and willing to listen to others

We'll also cover the cost of your lunch & travel, so if you'd like to join us for 2 weeks and learn about what it takes to make a company like the FA work, just click below and tell us in 140 words why this shot is the one for you - then check your emails to see what's next.
