Accomodation Manager

19 May 2021
About The Role

At Forest Green Rovers we run an apprenticeship programme for 16-18-year-old boys with potential to be professional footballers. Some of these live too far away to travel in for training so during the season (July-May) stay in an accommodation block in Stroud.

As some of them are living away from home for the first time they need support with life skills such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry and some may need emotional support moving away from their family home.

We are looking for someone to live in the accommodation block to help the transition to live independently and to support their mental and emotional wellbeing.

As they train and study during the day the hours are from 5pm-10pm and the position involves sleeping on site in case of emergencies.

The role is also suitable for a job share.

About Us

Founded in 1889, Forest Green Rovers is a football club with a rich 128-year history – but we’re at the forefront of something quite new here.

FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world – it’s certainly true that no other football club in the world has put the environment at the heart of what it does, embedded it into its DNA like we do.

We’re the only club in the world to have EMAS accreditation – the gold standard of environmental management – and we’re the first and only vegan football club in the world. In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience.

Our aim is to be in the Championship within the next five years – and we’re planning to build a stadium to match those ambitions, too. Designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, ‘Eco Park’ would be the only stadium in the world made entirely of wood.
