Have you thought about a football coach job before? Working with groups or individuals, football coaches improve their skills and enable them to play the game at a higher standard. Football coaches can work at an amateur or a professional level to develop players' performance, fitness, technical skills and team working.
Football coaches can find work with clubs, schools and local authority programmes for young people, helping them to get involved in sport and activities. There are also opportunities to work in senior competitive football, although this is a competitive, results-based business, with chances of progression depending on building a good reputation.
Another possibility is to undergo further training to develop your skills within specialist areas such as international coaching, performance coaching, goalkeeping coaching, or psychology. This is a competitive field, with many coaches working part-time or in a voluntary capacity - this is certainly the most common entry point into the filed.
Earnings can vary widely, but community coaches typically earn between £16,000 and £24,000 a year, while coaches with professional clubs can earn anything from £25,000 up to £250,000 depending on their role, and the level of the club.
