Posted: Wed 24 Feb 2016

AFC Bournemouth is seeking to recruit accommodation providers for young professional footballers who are offered a trial period at the club.

Lodgings should provide good quality accommodation in an area which provides a safe setting for players to live during their weekly training schedule. 

The role will require residential accommodation for a period of time ranging from two days to as long as two weeks.

Players who are on trial at the club and stay in accommodation will require the landlord/lady to provide high quality nutritional breakfasts and evening meals with occasional lunches.  

Please note that the club will often give short notice to the accommodation provider when a trialist is coming into the club and ideally we are looking for accommodation that has a room available throughout the season.

Information on remuneration and the application process is available from AFC Bournemouth's head of education & welfare Dawn Roach, who can be contacted either via email: or phone: 07921801826. 

AFC Bournemouth is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all accommodation providers to share this commitment. Applicants to this role will be required to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service with Children’s barring list check. (Criminal Records Check).  Clearance through The FA Criminal Records Body system is also required.  As such this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) and the applicant must disclose all previous convictions including spent convictions. (In line with the new filtering requirements). Two written references will also be required. Applicants, in addition, will need to demonstrate that the accommodation meets certain safety standards.

Successful applicants will be required to complete an FA Safeguarding Children Workshop.

AFC Bournemouth values the diversity of its workforce and welcomes applications from all sectors of the community (Equality Act 2010).
