Want to make a difference in supporting our female referee workforce? Keen to give something back?
Motivated to helping others be successful?
The Kent FA are committed to ensuring female match officials are provided with the utmost support in the careers. As a Female Referee Ambassador (FRA), you will provide positive advice, guidance and provision for female match officials across all levels, by means of both administrative and in-game support. You will need to be patient, empathetic and have the desire and commitment to help and support the next generation of Kent’s refereeing workforce.
The new roles will offer stability and long-term support to females going through a transition period in their qualification and embarking on their new challenge. You will provide a listening ear, advice and support, as well as being the regional point of contact, and can therefore have a very important impact on their career.
As a FRA, you will be regionally matched with a small group of female match officials. It will be your role to support them in getting them games in local women's & girl’s leagues, as well as providing them within mentoring support. Furthermore, the aim will be to support with the transition into open-aged football, and then into the promotion scheme. FRAs will need to be supportive in providing information, facilitating opportunities and encourage participation. We must inspire and care for our female match officials, considering that they will have an important future in the game at both local level and in the professional game.
