The Football Association (The FA) is the governing body of football in England. We are responsible for promoting and developing the game at all levels; from grassroots through to the professional game, The FA Cup and the England teams, and has two core assets: Wembley Stadium and St. George's Park.
The FA's vision is that football is for everyone and we are determined to break down barriers which get in the way of progress. Today, we are the governing body of a national community that includes more than 11 million football participants, almost 30 million spectators and more than 90,000 grassroots teams.
At The FA, equality, diversity and inclusion means valuing and celebrating our differences. Nurturing the right working environment and culture means everyone thrives and can be themselves.
For the game, it means everyone's welcome, ensuring differences between us do not create barriers to getting into football and staying involved.
We believe embracing equality, diversity and inclusion makes us stronger, and better equipped to meet the challenges of the modern game.
The Football Association is seeking to appoint a number of independent members to its Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB).
The Inclusion Advisory Board was introduced by The Football Association in 2013 following the introduction of the cross-football Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination (IAD) Plan. The IAB reports, via the chair, to the main FA Board.
In 2018 The FA launched its 3-year equality, diversity and inclusion plan – In Pursuit of Progress:
This plan is broken down into five areas:
The FA will seek to appoint members with expertise in these areas and who reflect collectively the diversity of people involved in football.
As part of the IAB you will be required to:
As a minimum, IAB Members should attend four meetings each year, typically at quarterly intervals. Meetings are usually held on a weekday at Wembley Stadium although at least one of these meetings may be held at The National Football Centre at St. George's Park near Burton-On-Trent.In addition, you may be asked to represent The FA at various events/forums.
Members will be appointed for a term of two years, after which they will be eligible for reappointment to a maximum of four times two years.
In addition, we are seeking to appoint an independent member of The FA Council with the remit to represent BAME football communities. This position is appointed by The FA's Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB) and sits also on the IAB.
The FA Council is part of the decision-making structure of The FA with constitutionally defined powers which enables it to manage and regulate the game of football in England.
In addition to the accountabilities as a member of IAB, as part of The FA Council you will be required:
The level of commitment Council Members are required to make largely depends on the number of committees to which they are appointed.
As a minimum, Council Members should attend each meeting of Council, of which there are usually five per year. Meetings are usually on a weekday, commencing at 11.00am at Wembley Stadium. Board and committee meetings are held at differing intervals but are usually on a weekday at Wembley Stadium.
Applications for our Inclusion Advisory Board and the FA Council role will be managed externally by Savannah Group. To apply, please email your CV and cover letter to FAIAB@savannah-group.com by Thursday 14th November.
