Club secretaries facilitate the registration and the re-engagement of all players in accordance with the regulations by which the Club is bound and to ensure that all fixtures are organised correctly. This essential and specialist function retains the efficiency of all football administration matters, and ensures compliance for the Club with all governing body rules and regulations (i.e. PL, FL, FA, UEFA and FIFA).
The club secretary is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of football rules, regulations and requirements are fully communicated to the Board, Team Manager, Coaching staff and Academy staff and advise relevant personnel of the Club’s obligations and responsibilities under the relevant regulations. This role is the administration role most closely linked with the playing staff and requires a good understanding of contracts particularly from a legal perspective as well as HR procedures and generally requires the upmost organisation and attention to detail.
