London FA

Vacancy - Investigations Officer

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join the team at London FA.

The London Football Association is responsible for governing, safeguarding and developing football across the capital.

We were established in 1882 and have an incredibly rich and proud history. More recently we have been undergoing a period of very exciting transformation and modernisation, with a new Board and CEO in place and a new strategy to take us up to 2024. 

At the heart of this strategy is a vision to harness the power of football to enrich more lives in London. We are passionate about the wider benefits that football can bring to society and we know that if we are to have any chance of delivering this vision, we have to create the right environments for people to thrive.

Addressing poor behaviour on the pitch is essential if we are to achieve this goal and this is much wider than just a London issue.

We are currently looking for an Investigations Officer to join our team who has a keen eye for detail, is able to work in a fast paced environment, and has the ability to think outside the box to help modernise the department.
