Job Advert – Football Coach

Job Description

Community of Purpose, an award-winning community interest company, working with young people aged 8-19 years old across Bristol, is looking to recruit a football coach to supercharge The Bristol Together Championships programme. 

Community of Purpose, based in Keynsham, has been running since 2016, delivering services across the greater Bristol region through three targeted social impact programmes: tackling holiday hunger, improving social mobility within primary schools and shining a spotlight on the achievements of incredible young people.

 Having recently secured additional funding through our business partnerships, we are looking to build our staff team and help achieve our vision of transforming the lives and futures of young people. This exciting role involves leading, managing and delivering The Bristol Together Championships programme. 

Launched in 2012 and supported by the Mayor of Bristol, Bristol Together Championships pulls together year 5 pupils from Bristol schools from diverse communities to play in an annual football competition. Each school twins with another to form a joint team, mixing children from very different backgrounds. As an additional bonus, 20 children from four of the twinning participating schools will go on a three-day fully funded trip to Bristol’s twinned city of Bordeaux, giving children who are disadvantaged their first trip abroad and on a plane. 

The goals of Bristol Together Championships are to increase young people’s knowledge, understanding and respect of the different cultures, faiths and ethnicities in the Bristol area and appreciate the commonalities that exist between them. 

This is fast paced role which requires someone with excellent organisation skills; able to use their own initiative and able to manage and build relationships with young people, schools, and key stakeholders. We are looking for an outstanding individual to join us as we continue to expand our work across the city.
