This is an exciting time for women and girls' football, where there has been expediential growth over the last 3 years in participation and the number of fans watching matches.

Following a recent review of the Women's Football Board composition we are seeking to appoint an additional independent Non-Executive Director, to bring further expertise and experience to guide, challenge and advise on delivering against the four-year strategy 'Inspiring Positive Change' that was launched in October 2020.

The strategy pledges to create a sustainable future for women's and girls' football in England.

The strategy centres around the delivery of eight main objectives:

  • Development Participation - Every girl to have equal access to participate, compete and excel in the game
  • Football For All - A motivated, diverse range of local leaders, organising football for their communities
  • Club Player Pathway - An effective high-performance, inclusive player-centred pathway
  • Elite Women's Leagues and Competitions - The best professional women's sports leagues and competitions in the world
  • England - Win a major tournament
  • Coaching - Exceptional coaches at every level of the game who are representative of our society
  • Refereeing - Every female referee afforded high-quality bespoke learning new and development opportunities from grassroots through to the elite game

Through our strategy we want to ensure every woman and girl has the opportunity to play, compete and excel in the game.
