Kick It Out Seeks Director


Kick It Out is currently seeking a Director to take forward the next phase of the organisation's strategy.

Working within the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and work for positive change, the initiative is funded by The Football Association (FA), the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) and the Premier League.

A small independent charity, Kick It Out was established in 1993 in response to widespread calls from clubs, players and fans to tackle racist attitudes existing within game. Since then, the campaign has widened its objectives to cover all aspects of inequality, discrimination and exclusion.

Candidates applying for this position will have a proven track record of successful organisational management, especially in change management, supervising and developing staff, and fundraising. They must also showcase extensive knowledge of football institutions and networks, and demonstrate the ability to lead and innovate.


Applications are welcomed from candidates of all backgrounds.
