Media and Communications Assistant, CAFE

The Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) seeking to recruit a new Media and Communications Assistant to join our growing team. Deadline 22 July 2020.

CAFE works closely with our partners at UEFA, and other key stakeholders to promote improved access and inclusion across football. Using the game’s unique power, we celebrate the many roles disabled people can play within football, including as spectators, players, volunteers, coaches, administrators, leaders and decision makers.

Due to current circumstances, the role will be based remotely until further notice. A flexible approach, between remote work and being based in the CAFE Headquarters in central London, will be considered once safe.

This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a media and communications team on a European level. The CAFE team is particularly looking for someone who is creative, engaging and passionate about improved access and inclusion for all, with the ability to write for a number of different audiences.

Applicants are also asked to submit a short article, of 500 - 1,000 words, with the following title: ‘What can football do to improve access and inclusion for disabled people?’. Articles will not be published, but will be taken into consideration as part of your application. Please send your article at the same time as your completed application and supporting forms.

The full-time role will see the successful applicant work alongside our Media and Communications Manager, as well as supporting the rest of the CAFE team. The role will include offering support in writing and publishing news articles, monitoring and updating social media channels, and liaising with internal and external colleagues to source news articles.

Equality and inclusion are at the heart of our mission and we are absolutely committed to creating a diverse and inclusive work place with equality of opportunity for all. 

CAFE is committed to ensuring that our recruitment processes are barrier-free and as inclusive as possible to everyone. If you would like us to do anything differently during the application process, please contact us at the email address or phone number below.

Under the CAFE guaranteed interview scheme (GIS), any disabled candidates who meet the essential criteria for the post will be selected for interview. If you wish to apply under the GIS please complete the GIS form and return it with your application.

Please send a copy of your CV (with details of your current / last salary), along with your completed application form, short article, Equality Monitoring form, a brief supporting letter and GIS form, where applicable, by email to careers@cafefootball.eu. Please use the reference: ‘CAFE – Media and Communications Assistant’ in the subject title and return by 17.00 (BST) on Wednesday 22 July 2020.

Alternatively you can post your completed applications to CAFE, European Football Hub, Studio 212, The Record Hall, 16-16A Baldwin's Gardens, London, EC1N 7RJ, United Kingdom.
