BCFC get a high number of requests for work experience placements on a daily basis and the Club are committed to supporting the Communities in which we work. However, due to limited capacity and resources we have very few opportunities available for work experience placements and those we do have available, are fulfilled through our work with our charity partners, which are chosen on an annual basis and will be published on our careers site. This means that unfortunately we are unable to accept or agree ad-hoc requests for work experience placements.
You may be required to provide evidence of your eligibility to work in the UK - you can view a PDF chart of acceptable documents here.
ACADEMY HOST FAMILY PROVIDERS
Term: Self Employed
Location : Within 15 minute drive from Wast Hills Training Ground B38 9EL
Salary: Dependent on number of players and nights per week
Application closing date: Ongoing
We are currently seeking host family providers, couples or singles, to support our elite young players who need to live away from home to undertake their football training at our club. Players may range from 15 to 21.
Host families would be required to provide homely accommodation throughout the season.Players would require their own double bedroom. Access to public transport and local amenities is desirable.
Our placements vary from short term one-night stays to longer term 5-7 nights week. We are recruiting for families who can offer either or both of these types of placements.
Host families would be required to guide our young players by teaching them basic independent living skills such as washing, cooking cleaning after themselves alongside self care skills, for example, how to book medical appointments.Young players are also paid a ‘wage’ so may also require guidance on saving and budgeting especially for items such as mobile phone bills or car insurance. The host family will be required to provide meals (dependent upon the Academy schedule) in line with the basic nutrition guide provided by the Academy.
Hosts are encouraged to include young players in family life as much as the player feels comfortable. Both hosts and young players are given guidelines explaining what is expected of each of them. All our host families are regularly visited and inspected by us. Training is provided and annually refreshed.
Additionally, they formally undertake to protect and care for the young players in their charge.
The Football Club is committed to equal opportunities as well as safeguarding, promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any applicant wishing to be considered as a host family will need to demonstrate they are able to share this commitment.
As part of this commitment, Host Families are required to attend Safeguard Training every three years which is delivered by the Football Association/Football League.Hosts family members and any other persons over the age of 16 who reside at the address, are legally required to complete enhanced DBS checks, subscribe to the DBS Update Service on an annual basis and to authorise the Club to obtain a medical report from their GP.Fees for checks will be reimbursed.
