Safeguarding

Huddersfield Town is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As this role is likely to involve the supervision of and work with children and young people or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will require clearance to work in football and an Enhanced Criminal Records Check (CRC) through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Applicants must disclose all previous convictions including spent convictions in accordance with the associated legislation. The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provide that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account. Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.

Equality & Inclusion

Huddersfield Town AFC is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where everyone can be themselves and in which everyone feels valued and included, and supported to achieve their full potential. We offer a range of family-friendly and inclusive employment arrangements and we have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination. We are committed to the redress of any inequalities by taking positive action where appropriate. We are a Disability Confident Leader and welcome applications from candidates with a disability. We are also seeking to diversify our workforce, in particular by gender and ethnicity.
