Check out the comments from some of our happy members below! “I'm Mary Kelly and I'm a UEFA B licenced coach from Ireland. I first head of BFCN after connecting with Simon Motyka on LinkedIn. I was familiar with Simon having worked in Kuwait with Juventus. He recommended that I check out BFCN for jobs as they were continuously updating their website with new opportunities. I saw the position for Early Years Specialist with a company in Abu Dhabi. The application process included a short video of me coaching, a C.V, cover letter and a phone interview. From the first email to being offered the job was a month duration.This job was not advertised anywhere else which really shows the worth of signing up to BFCN.”
“I found BFCN on LinkedIn, easy and straightforward to sign up to. They are very helpful and informative, answered any questions I had, especially Vinny he was extremely helpful and gave me great advice. The jobs I found were straight forward to apply for and I was successful in finding a job in Abu Dhabi. Would definitely recommend them. - Lee Hawkey “Having only just started using BCFN I have already been able to explore different job opportunities abroad, which display an immense interest and attraction to me. The director, Vinny Rodham, has been a great help navigating me around the website as it’s something that I’m new to. BFCN has allowed me to connect with coaches and people in the football industry on other platforms such as LinkedIn. This is helping me build my connections to become a more attractive employee.” - Sam Firth, 18 year old Level 1 Coach deciding on his career pathway “I first heard about BFCN from Matt Ward, I was following him on Twitter and Facebook when he posted about it. For me this was what I had been looking for. Having played football abroad, and coached abroad already, I wanted to carry on coaching abroad but the opportunities were hard to find. I signed up for premium membership as soon as I could, the opportunities and jobs posted are exceptional and really give coaches the chance to work within football full time. I'm now in Bangkok coaching and its all thanks to BFCN! If you're reading this and you're based in Thailand (Bangkok) or have contacts in Bangkok please drop me a message as I'd like to meet more coaches/players out here.” - Josh Shepherd: Twitter - coachjoshshep
