Where will your ambitions take you?

Some of the best things about coaching are the places you will go to, and the people you will meet. Over time, you will learn and adapt to new cultures. The strange will become the ordinary. There is so much to be gained from stepping outside of your comfort zone, and there is so much more that can be added to your comfort zone.

Opportunities

At BFCN, we post opportunities from all over the world. They can be in locations that are football crazy, or they could be out in the football wilderness. With us you'll find anything from jobs with pro clubs to volunteer opportunities in developing communities.

BFCN members get £150 off opportunities with our friends at Projects Abroad, and our friends at Girls United are always looking for coaches to head to Mexico. For employment opportunities, look into what BFCN memberships are available.

Learn From Others

We love highlighting the good work and showcasing the journeys of coaches around the world. It can be inspiring to see what they've done at to revel in their achievements. Here are three ways we can help you to learn from them:

1. BFCN articles. If you like to read, we have plenty of articles from coaches with a wide range of experience.

2. Developing Your Football World Podcast. Great guests with experience all over the globe have featured, sharing their stories and detailing their coaching pathways. Available on all podcast apps. New episodes are on the BFCN TV YouTube channel. Another good resource is the YouTube channel of our good friend Matt Ward, featuring not only great guests, but also top career advice too.

3. LinkedInHave a look at their virtual CVs, connect with them, even ask them questions. We have over 6,500 connections on LinkedIn, covering all continents and all levels. If you'd like to be connected to a particular group of people, just get in touch. The football world can be big and scary, but most coaches are generally nice people who are willing to help.
