The FC Nordsjælland (FCN) Head of Women’s Football position is an exciting opportunity to lead operational, technical and programme elements which will shape the future of hundreds of talented young women over the next five years. Based in Farum, the role will lead all the technical, tactical, physical and psycho-social areas of performance within the FCN Women’s Model, reporting directly to the Football CEO.
Alongside the FCN Women’s Head Coach, U18s coach and other crucial team members, the Head of Women’s football will oversee the holistic growth of opportunities for young women from recruitment through to world-class playing and learning outcomes. The role will work closely with the FCN Academy Manager in a period of development in our Academy system, and the successful individual will make an important contribution to combining the girls and boys Academies into one high performance culture.
Right to Dream (RTD) is a group of Academies, professional football clubs, and educational institutions now growing across the world. Our purpose is to redefine the way the world sees excellence. First founded more than 20 years ago in Ghana, the academy creates an environment that empowers talented youth and the next generation of leaders to fulfil their potential. Now, academies in Denmark and Egypt join our family, and together we prove that excellence can be found anywhere.
Our Academies have produced an opportunity ecosystem that has enabled hundreds of student-athletes to go to top schools in the US, professional footballers playing top flight European football, and youth and senior internationals.
There is scope for this role to grow after a couple of years for the right candidate, potentially into a role which is global in orientation across the Right to Dream Group.
The right candidate will be proactive, ambitious, purpose-driven and a capable programme leader. They will be an experienced and proven pro-football leader who is trusted and credible. They must be a genuine believer in the massive untapped potential in women’s football and a person who is willing to negotiate obstacles to get the results we want for women and girls on and off the pitch. This role will suit a tenacious collaborator more than an independent operator.
