Job Description

The Premier League believe that having a diverse workforce is important to drive business performance. The organisation is committed to improving greater access opportunities and career progression for Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups in football. The organisation is launching a pilot placement programme targeted at these groups, aiming to develop and prepare individuals for a future career in football. There are currently three places on the pilot cohort, with a plan to expand the programme in future. The Premier League are looking for individuals who are available to commence on 1 September 2021.

The Premier League is home to some of the most competitive and compelling football in the world. The League and its clubs use the power and popularity of the competition to inspire fans, communities and partners in the UK and across the world. The Premier League brings people together from all backgrounds. It is a competition for everyone, everywhere and is available to watch in over 1 billion homes in 189 countries.

We have a wide variety of responsibilities. These include organising the competition and its Rule Book as well as managing the centralised broadcast and commercial rights.

The work we do in conjunction with the Clubs also goes far beyond the 90 minutes. We support and provide a framework for youth development, we protect the organisation’s intellectual property, support the wider game and community programmes, undertake international development work and liaise with governing bodies and other leagues.
