Here’s what some of our staff say about working with us:

Robyn Kennerdale, Head of Supporter Experience

I have worked for Huddersfield Town since 2006 in a number of different roles across departments including Retail, Commercial and now, Supporter Services. I have always liked the notion that although most of the staff employed at the Club can’t directly control anything that happens on the pitch, we all have an important role to play off it, and that contributes to everyone’s collective goal to be a competitive and sustainable Club in the top tier of football.

When I returned to work in 2017 after maternity leave, I was concerned about juggling work and childcare. The Club supported me in ensuring my working hours were flexible to meet the needs of my family, as well as giving access to a childcare voucher scheme that was available at the time. My professional development is also supported through my enrolment in a Leadership and Management course offering a formal qualification, which I commenced in September 2020 alongside colleagues within the Club.

I am grateful to work within a brilliant team, and I particularly enjoy being part of our Equality Working Group, a team of staff at all levels of the organisation whose aim is to ensure our policies, procedures and practices are inclusive and accessible.

I would encourage anyone thinking of applying for a role within the Club or Foundation to read the information on the Careers and Terriers Together pages of our website in particular, to learn about our values and the ways in which you can be supported as a staff member working for HTAFC.

Ryan Thorold, IT Network Engineer

When I first joined Huddersfield Town Football Club in 2018 as an IT Apprentice, I was under-confident in my technical ability, and I had never been part of a workplace before.  Joining the Club allowed me to greatly improve my technical knowledge and ability under the tutelage of the IT Manager, who has a great deal of experience. Meeting and getting to know all the friendly people that work at the Club also allowed me to become much more comfortable in the workplace. I was able to gain several qualifications and was eventually offered a full-time and permanent position at the end of my apprenticeship.

I greatly enjoy working at the Club, as I’m always learning new things in my role as an IT Network Engineer, and the people working with and around me make the working day a pleasant experience.

Working for Huddersfield Town offers a great opportunity to work in an interesting and unique industry. If you work hard in your role and help those around you, you will definitely see an appreciation for it from the rest of the Club.

Andy Booth, Club Ambassador

I’ve been lucky enough to have been involved with both sides of the Football Club and it’s amazing to see where we are now from when I started. I’ve witnessed the Stadium where I grew up demolished and a brand new state of the art Stadium built before my very eyes. We went from 10 staff to the workforce we have today and throughout these massive changes, the family Club feel is exactly the same.

I joined Huddersfield Town in 1990 as an apprentice and signed my first pro-contract at the age of 18. Apart from having a 5 year spell away I played most of my career at the Club I loved and supported all my life. After playing well over 400 games for the club I played my last ever game at Leyton Orient, scoring my 150th and final goal, making me the third highest goal scorer in the Club’s history, something I am very proud of and hopefully the record will stand for a long time to come.

After my retirement I was made Club Ambassador and after my first week working behind the scenes I could not believe the amount of work that goes into putting on a football match once a week! One thing that stood out to me and still does to this day was the commitment, hard-work and loyalty of every staff member. Over the years I have worked with all the different departments and every day brings something different.

My department is Supporter Services where we work closely with our fan groups and junior clubs, look after the Family Stand and Fanzone on a match day and try and make sure home and away supporters get the best experience possible. We also work with local charities such as Yorkshire Air Ambulance and I’m very proud to say we have raised £2.2million for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign which is a massive achievement for us as a Club.

I feel very lucky I’ve been associated with the Club as a player, an employee and supporter for so long and I am incredibly proud of the work we all do, both on and off the field.

Carl Dickinson, Security Officer

What I enjoy most about working at Huddersfield Town is by far the people and that every day is different. I work with a good team of people who care, and I enjoy meeting new people when they arrive at the Training Ground, having a chat and making them feel looked after.

The Club and my team support me in everything I need to be able to do my role - nothing is too much trouble and if I need anything, I know I can ask. The Club have supported me in attending courses, which I have enjoyed and learnt lots to help with the daily operations of the Training Ground. I like that I am trusted to get on with the job.

During my time at the Club I have gone from being a volunteer to a full-time member of staff, which for me was a new start and which made me feel included and a ‘normal’ person. I now have a base, my own desk, and a great workspace, which allows me to do my work well at the Training Ground’s new Security Centre.

If anyone is thinking about applying for a job with Huddersfield Town, the only thing I would say is just to be yourself.

Callum Adams, Head of Strength & IDP

When planning my career pathway during my time at University, it was clear I always wanted to work within football; Huddersfield Town AFC offered this opportunity and I have never looked back.

My role has evolved a lot since I joined in 2014/15 season, from Sport Scientist to, now, club Physical Performance Coach; this involves me working right through the Club from U17 to First Team in a strength and conditioning capacity. The Club has further supported me through this role, funding quality CPD (continued professional development) such as a Masters degree with Salford University.

My clear and obvious highlight during my time with the Club so far is the 2016/17 championship promotion year, something that changed my life for the better because the opportunity to work in the Premier League in this industry is second to none.

My best advice to somebody looking to work for HTAFC is, be prepared to work for your colleagues, never be selfish and understand ‘TEAM’ is a must for success.

We are delighted to be a Mindful Employer having signed the Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health.

The scheme involves making a commitment to supporting staff with their mental health and wellbeing, along with creating a supportive and open culture in the workplace.

Signing the Charter reflects the values of the Club and ensures that we are continuing to provide the best possible working environment for our employees, so that we can collectively work together to become stronger and maintain positive mental health and wellbeing.

To find out more about our Mindful Employer status and our on-going commitments to support employees and job applicants in this area, please click HERE.

Huddersfield Town are proud to be the first football club to be a fully accredited Menopause Friendly Employer, an accreditation through which we have demonstrated our understanding of the effects that menopause can have in the workplace, raised awareness, and put support in place for those who need it.

We have a comprehensive Menopause Policy, covering roles and responsibilities, and the range of possible adjustments we may make for anyone experiencing menopausal symptoms.

We are committed to catering for all our employees’ health and wellbeing needs, and by working in partnership with Henpicked on the Menopause Friendly scheme, we have implemented practical ways to support our colleagues, and we have provided mandatory Menopause Awareness training for all our staff. We are very proud to be leading the way in breaking down the taboos often associated with the menopause and that this work is integral to our ‘Terriers Together’ Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Strategy and female inclusion aspirations. Feedback on this important work has been well-received:

"I am proud to work for a company that is at the forefront of best-practice in relation to the menopause. In my experience, so many people shy away from talking about the menopause, which can make it difficult to access help and support. In our culture, everyone is committed to reducing and removing stigma and encouraging discussion on topics that might still be considered taboo. I know I can speak to any of my colleagues and my line manager if I need help to manage my symptoms, whether that is by having the flexibility to work from home, to amend my working hours, or attend medical appointments. I can be honest about my needs without fear of any negative repercussions. I think it’s brilliant that Huddersfield Town is the first football club to be working towards Menopause Friendly Employer status."

"I found the Menopause awareness training very detailed and in depth. It was very beneficial as it allowed me to be much more aware of how colleagues may be feeling when going through this stage in life. I would recommend this course to others as it would benefit them both in the working day and in day to day life."

Increasing female representation and being inclusive of people of all genders in the Club are part of our fundamental equality aims under our ‘Terriers Together’ ethos, and we look forward to continuing our work in this area.

At Huddersfield Town, we’re proud to be one of the early adopters of the new West Yorkshire Fair Work Charter.

Created by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, the West Yorkshire Fair Work Charter is an ambitious new initiative designed to support and celebrate great employers across our region.

It has been designed for employers of all sizes and across all sectors, to promote and recognise the positive impact of fair work on businesses and their people.

Fair work can include good pay, fair and flexible working conditions, as well as greater wellbeing, diversity, and social mobility within the workplace.

Town have been awarded ‘Fair Work’s status for our overall approach to our employees, but in particular our mentorship programmes and opportunities for young people were picked out as highlights.

Our focus on diversifying our workforce also fits very well with the framework of this new charter.

To celebrate that Huddersfield Town is an early adopter of this new charter, our Human Resources Manager and Equality Lead Zoe Shackleton features in this video – check it out below or via this link!

We are currently reviewing our work experience, student placements and volunteering policy and we aren't accepting applications at this time.

Please revisit the site in the future when our new processes are in place.

The Club is keen to support people who are looking for a career change or newly out of education or training by offering apprenticeships where feasible. All vacancies are advertised with the National Apprenticeship Service.

Tommy Clegg, Finance Assistant

I started working at Huddersfield Town in July 2019, as an Accounting Apprentice studying the AAT courses, alongside working as a Ticket Office Assistant. Right from the start of my course, I have received support from my line manager, various members of the Finance Department, as well as my colleagues in the Ticket Office. With the departments constantly working together on different projects, this has really helped me learn the relevant knowledge for my course and has given me new skills and experiences to assist further with my each other. They are always looking for ways to incorporate my interests and hobbies within my day-to-day job, like giving me the responsibility of social media accounts, which really keeps me motivated. Within the Ticket Office, we are always working towards a match day - they are what we all really look forward to, especially the anticipation before a match and the buzz you feel in the office after a victory.

My apprenticeship experience has been even better than I expected, as everyone here at the club is always wanting to help me progress to the next level, which I achieved in March 2021 when I progressed into the role of Finance Assistant. I would definitely recommend Huddersfield Town as a place to work, as you really are made to feel part of a big family and there are many opportunities to develop.
