Have the Digital World at your Feet
Technology is key to the FA's transformation. From supporting grassroots via our day-to-day digital presence, to using data-led insights to drive the game – to developing future focused platforms for professional football – our Digital Technology team is central to our future.
Whilst investment in technology to make the experience of all participants relevant and easy, is already at the heart of how we can serve the game, we are looking to invest even further and deliver in a more iterative way, forming product lines and fully moving towards an Agile, Product Management framework.
By 2024, we will upgrade and simplify our core football administration system (moving from Whole Game System to Platform for Football) and provide enhanced capability to England teams.
Our product lines cover all those that RUN, PLAY, LEARN as well as our responsibility to REGULATE, WIN and leverage DATA whilst also ensuring sufficient focus on the CORE BUSINESS online and PLATFORMS that support each product and service across the organisation.
Join us in helping to DECIDE THE GAME and HAVE THE DIGITAL WORLD AT YOUR FEET.
The Role and Key Accountabilities
Reporting into the Head of Digital Governance and Transformation this role is responsible for the introduction and dissemination of transformation and change management best practice and policy. Rapid digital acceleration has brought organisational and operating model change to the forefront, the resulting push to product management must be supported by a good governance framework and a culture that supports change. In an era of digitalisation, we must increasingly focus on transformation and digital adoption for the FA's investment in technology to create value, as the lines between technology and the business divisions become blurred. This role will introduce thought leadership in transformation and change management policy and frameworks and will initially support the transformation implementation within the Digital Technology (DT) division.
