The FA’s Football Leadership Diversity Code Careers platform

To support the FA’s commitment to improving equality and diversity of the workforce across the English elite football game, Global Sports developed the FLDC Careers Platform. Providing a central website, for all code members to post their available jobs and reach a diverse range of candidates

The platform was one of a number of initiatives invested in by The FA for the launch of FA’s Football Leadership Diversity Code (FLDC).


Our Scope

In collaboration with The FA, the platform was designed, developed and is now currently managed exclusively by Global Sports.

From initial scoping, platform specification through to build and launch, including inducting various stakeholders in football.

Global Sports now proactively manages the job platform, including its promotion and marketing to diverse audiences, partnership development and EDI reporting on recruitment activity through it, on behalf of The FA and FLDC Code members.
