UNITED E-NEWS 18-12-2009: VACANCY - FARE Co-ordinator
***Forwarded message from Howard Holmes firstname.lastname@example.org - please do NOT
reply to UNITED***
Co-ordinator, FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe)
FARE was established a decade ago as a European network to campaign
against all forms of discrimination in the sport. It has been very
successful in raising awareness at all levels of the game and its work
has expanded to extend across nearly 40 countries. FARE is currently
reforming its governance arrangements so that they remain fit for
purpose, becoming a formally constituted democratic entity in its own
right. This includes establishing a small professional secretariat,
headed by a co-ordinator with administrative/financial support. The
secretariat will also be responsible for contracted functions of project
and communications management.
FARE now seeks to recruit a full-time co-ordinator. S/he will ensure
that the secretariat functions as a coherent and effective unit,
supporting the board and implementing its decisions. It will be critical
that the secretariat supports the activist fabric of the network rather
than becoming bureaucratic and remote from it. It will also represent
FARE on a day-to-day basis with the governing bodies of the sport,
funders and the wider public.
The role of co-ordinator is thus an exciting but also demanding one. The
successful candidate must be self-starting and dynamic, and able to
manage a range of relationships with colleagues across the continent.
They must be committed to contesting intolerance wherever it is to be
found in the sport and to the empowerment of members of minority
communities. They must ensure that FARE behaves in an impeccably
professional manner in delivering on its commitments to funders and
The chosen candidate will enter discussions with the FARE management
board as to the location from which s/he and their back-up will work,
which could involve a personal arrangement or an arrangement with one of
the FARE partner organisations. A competitive salary, and assistance
with any reasonable relocation costs, will be offered.
An information pack is available to download from www.farenet.org.
Completed applications, including a cv and a covering letter indicating
how the requirements of the position would be met, should be emailed to
The closing date for applications to be received is 31st January 2010.
Interviews will take place in February.
Potential applicants wishing to discuss the post should contact Howard
Holmes at Football Unites, Racism Divides, on +44-114-255 3156, or via
email at email@example.com.
