Jobs & Tenders at the IFA

Appointment of Independent Members to Association Committees

Over the past few years the Association has undertaken a review of its governance and a number of positions within its participative governance committee structure have been reserved for independent members (those who are not connected to any of the IFA’s member Clubs, leagues or associations, or in the case of the Referees Committee position who is not a referee). It is expected that applicants should have an interest in and empathy with association football and would wish to make a positive contribution to its administration at an exciting time for the game in Northern Ireland.

All positions will be for an initial tenure of three years commencing on 1 July 2018.

To apply please forward your CV with covering letter to recruitment@irishfa.com.  Your covering letter should include the reference number (found after each role title) for one or more roles you would like to apply for and a brief summary stating why you are suitable for the role.
