Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club is now recruiting for a full-time phase coach to join a vibrant academy coaching team.

This is a permanent role based primarily at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing and candidates will be required to start as soon as possible.

This role will involve coaching and developing academy players in the foundation and pre-academy age groups and preparing them for the eventual transfer into the academy at U9 or into the youth development phase at U13. It is envisaged that the role will also involve assisting in the management of this phase.

Knowledge of the PMA is desirable and a UK clean, valid driving licence is essential.  Candidates will possess a proactive attitude and have the ability to work calmly under pressure whilst demonstrating high quality coaching and management skills.
