We are looking for talented, enthusiastic people who want to progress their coaching careers.



We Make Footballers® offer an intense training programme for our coaches. With over 2000 sessions to choose from for each session, (tailor made for each age group and ability level) you begin to build your very own coaching database. We go far beyond the basic training you get on your FA level 1 and 2 courses. We teach you about the importance of verbal and nonverbal language, the way to communicate with parents, how to ensure children are always kept safe and how to make sessions as fun as possible. You will sit online exams and get a coach mentor to help you develop your coaching career.


As much as the children need to have fun, so do our staff.
We have a great working environment within the company and you will be sure to have a whale of time while working with us. Coaching young footballers is one of the most enjoyable jobs you can do with your time!


We Make Footballers® take pride in the fair prices we pay our staff. We pay competitive rates and have opportunities to earn more by selling products and services.


As a growing national franchise we have a number of career opportunities within We Make Footballers®. We have a “promote from within” hiring policy and actively encourage you to develop your future career in football with us.


We Make Footballers® Academy is more than just a coaching company, we are determined to inspire change in the approach to football across England. You will be part of a coaching movement, fighting for more technically gifted footballers, with better game understanding. Each week you will contribute to changing football in England.
