At Southampton Football Club we provide fair and equal career opportunities to a diverse talent pool. Our selection process is not just about us getting to know you, but about you getting to know us and ensuring this is the right next step for you too.
Achievements are important and we look for applications which clearly outline your career, experience, and education but we also want to see your potential too.
Our masked application process limits any unconscious bias, ensuring we don’t just recruit in our own image, something which we continually monitor. We want to recruit and attract talented people from every background, as we recognise the importance of a diverse workforce and how that enables us all to achieve success.
Southampton Football Club continues to celebrate the diversity of the club and its community. We are proud to be Disability Confident employers and support the FA’s Football Leadership Diversity Code, as well as continuing to maintain the Premier League Equality Advanced Standards achieved in 2020 (now known as the PLEDIS).
We welcome applications from all candidates regardless of age, race, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, sex and religion or belief.
Southampton Football Club is committed to our responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing and safety of all vulnerable groups who are under the club’s care or using its facilities.
It is the duty of all adults working at the club to safeguard the welfare of vulnerable groups by creating an environment that protects them from harm. The wellbeing of vulnerable groups is paramount for all staff, and we are committed to recruiting candidates who share this commitment to safeguarding.
Disability Confident Statement
Southampton Football Club are proud to be Disability Confident Employers who are committed to supporting candidates with disabilities throughout our recruitment process and beyond. If you have a disability and require support during the recruitment process, please contact the Human Resources Team at [email protected] so we can understand your specific requirements and discuss any arrangements with you.
Disability Confident is creating a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled employees.
Being Disability Confident is a unique opportunity to lead the way in our community, giving the club the chance to discover someone our business cannot do without. It was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives to make it rigorous but easily accessible, particularly for smaller businesses.
