The FMPA – positioning our Members at the forefront of the jobs market in Professional Football.

Working in professional football is probably one of the most exciting and rewarding environments you could possibly work in as a medical or science practitioner. Being at the centre of the Game day to day, travelling with the team, visiting away stadiums, cup competitions, training with the players. No wonder it is the dream of so many.

Yet this is a unique experience enjoyed by a select few.

This is why, in what is an extremely competitive industry, it is vital to prepare and position yourself in the best place possible in order to apply for posts within the game.

The FMPA is already established as the first point of contact for Clubs when they wish to advertise jobs. Heads of Medicine & Performance are Members of the Association and accordingly they support the FMPA by ensuring this remains the case. The FMPA are also a trusted entity in the recruitment arena so HR departments, CEOs and Club Secretaries are familiar with the process of posting positions with us.

All members receive an email alert as soon as a position is posted. This gives them priority notification which means their applications can be at the Club before many are even aware of its existence.

However, the recruitment landscape is set to change

The Future

Specialist industries need specialist personnel, with football and sport in general being a prime example. The use of recruitment agencies is becoming more common place and as such the FMPA is partnering with a leading sports search firm to offer a complete recruitment service to members and Clubs.

This will include

  • a confidential executive search & find option,
  • a filtering of applicant service and
