Opportunity: Judicial Services Officer - The FA

The Football Association have an exciting opportunity for a Judicial Services Officer. This exciting administrative role provides a unique opportunity to contribute towards the governance and regulation of football. The primary function of the Judicial Services department is to facilitate hearings and provide administrative support to Panels appointed to deal with a variety of case types.

These Panels include Regulatory Commissions and related Appeal Boards which deal with disciplinary incidents from the Premier League, EFL, Steps 1-4 in the football pyramid, the Women's Super League, and Women's Championship. Example cases include wrongful dismissal claims after a player has been sent from the field of play or misconduct charges ranging from improper conduct in the technical area to betting on football.

The next Panel is the Safeguarding Review Panel (SRP). The SRP considers cases, from all levels of the game, referred to them by the Safeguarding team. The SRP assesses the risk of harm that individuals may pose to children and vulnerable adults in football. Finally, there are Appeals Boards convened to hear appeals against decisions other than those by a Regulatory Commission.
