Futbol Mas Kenya is hiring a social science professional to work as Community Coordinator

Fútbol Más are reinforcing their team, particularly in Mathare (Nairobi) with a Community Coordinator. In Futbol Mas you need to be prepared to be flexible and dynamic, not afraid to go from a social sports activity in the community field to a formal meeting.

Founded in 2008 in Santiago de Chile, we have grown into an international Sport for Development NGO with presence in 8 countries: Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Haiti, Paraguay, Mexico, France and Kenya. Every week about 9,500 children participate in our programmes in challenging environments throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and now for the first time Africa. We're a social and community-based programme using football as a vehicle for social change and happiness. One of our founders was recently voted Social Entrepreneur of the Year in Chile! For more information visit our website.

In Kenya we work in two communities of Nairobi, one in Mathare and one in Kibera. In each community a team of one physical education or sports professional and one social professional (psychologist, social worker or related careers) implement the programme. As a duo they lead the Fútbol Más sessions and activities.

We are currently receiving candidacies for a position as Community Coordinator in Mathare. Therefore we are looking for young professionals in social sciences: psychology, sociology, social or community work, education or related careers with a passion for football, social innovation and/or community work. We are not a competitive football development programme and in this position there is no need to be “football-literate".

You will get the opportunity to take active part in an interesting phase of our programme implementation in Mathare, where the community is already owning most of the programme under our guidance.
