Accommodation Providers

Derby County Football Club are seeking to recruit Accommodation Providers in the local area for young adult professional football players (aged 16 to 21) who need to live away from home to undertake their training at our Academy. Lodgings should provide good quality accommodation in an area which provides a safe setting for the young players to live during their weekly training schedule.

Accommodation providers are required to provide good quality accommodation which provides a safe setting for the young players to live during their weekly training schedule. 

Residential (over-night) accommodation would be required for the duration of the football season, typically July to May, and will require the provision of nutritional breakfasts and evening meals with occasional lunches.

Our Education, Safeguarding, Medical and Nutritional teams are readily available to support Accommodation Providers in their role, which includes training, advice and guidance where appropriate.

Information on monthly remuneration and the application process is available from the Academy Safeguarding Officer, Tony Brittan [07912268915] or [email protected].

Our Host Family Handbook is available here.

We look forward to hearing from you!
