Derby County Football Club traineeships opportunity

Derby County Traineeships

We’ve teamed up with Derby County Community Trust to offer unemployed people with a passion for sport and sports coaching to join our traineeship scheme at Derby County FC.

This is a great opportunity for those aged 16-18 who are unemployed or not in education; to get first-hand paid work experience and learn the important work skills they will need to kick-start their career in the sporting industry.

The traineeship will start on Wednesday 27 September at 10am at the Derby County FC (DE24 8BX). On the day you’ll be given a ground tour of the stadium, as well as undergo an initial English and maths assessment to examine your training needs.

At the end of the programme all trainees who complete the course will be guaranteed an interview for an apprentice position!

Kieron Wicks from Derby County Community Trust says; “If there are any young people out there who want a career in sport but don’t know where to start, this is a fantastic opportunity. We are always looking for young talent to join our team taking sport out into the community. A traineeship with us is a brilliant way to get your foot on football and coaching career ladder.”

Stuart Allen, Director of Learning for Health, Wellbeing and Society at Chesterfield College said; “When you combine the kind of work experience that Derby County Community Trust can offer with improving the skills that will make you more employable, traineeships are a really powerful way to improve your prospects and get you the job that you’ve always dreamed of. At the end of this programme trainees will either progress onto an apprenticeship or further study so we urge you to get in touch and find out more."
