•    Strategic thinker, factoring multiple perspectives into their conversations, ideas and solutions to keep the MA and a sustainable legacy at the centre
•    A professional and highly knowledgeable individual (in their chosen field) that inhibits high performance personal and working standards, with high respect for the game and for all those that work to support the development and growth of Football globally

•    Minimum 10 years of experience as an educator for elite youth coaches or as a coaching director or an academy director
•    Proven experience as a coach at elite youth level (youth national teams and/or academy teams) in designing and managing the development of elite youth players (both individually and as a team)
•    Proven experience in coach development & mentoring
•    Proficient in MS Office (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Visio & Project)
•    Fluent in English and preferably in French or Spanish. Any other widely used language (Arabic, Russian, Portuguese, Chinese, etc.) would be an asset
•    Willingness to travel
