League Coordinator - Birmingham
PlayFootball General Manager – Birmingham
We are seeking a League Coordinator to support the general manager in delivering an unrivalled football experience before during and after play, at our flagship Arena in Birmingham B19 2LF.
The role will primarily oversee the preparation and running of the adult football 5-a-side leagues each evening and to positively contribute to the player experience.
The role is ideally suited to a strong character who is comfortable under pressure and well organised. The job will entail a level of selling as well as money handling and event planning. Due to the nature of the business, no two shifts are ever the same so an open and enthusiastic approach to the job is essential, as is the confidence to speak face to face with customers as well as over the phone.
Established in 2006, PlayFootball is one of 3 major small-sided football brands and the most recent market entrant. PlayFootball develops products and services to players of all ages, genders and abilities. The most popular products include organised competitive leagues with on line results, fixtures and league tables, regular social pitch hire, team training, junior pay and play and children’s football parties. PlayFootball also has a growing number of Community based partners who use the facilities to deliver, through football, their own community specific objectives.
PlayFootball is fully accredited by the FA and adheres to the FA small-sided football guidelines. PlayFootball is a member of the FAs Small Sided Football strategic group which aims to support the development of small-sided football as part of an overarching FA strategy to build football participation levels in England.
PlayFootball hosts over 1.5 million player visits annually through its existing portfolio of centres across the UK and this is expected to double over the next 3 years to over 3 million player visits through a combination of organic growth, contract partnerships and new site developments. This growth requires a new calibre of general management that will focus on the growing demands of the operation and drive the commercial opportunity.
