Academy Host Accommodation Providers

9 December 2021

Hull City Academy are seeking to recruit host family providers, couples or singles, to support our elite aspiring footballers, who need to live away from their home to undertake their football training.

Host families would be required to provide homely and quality accommodation, in an area which provides a safe setting for players to live during their busy training schedule. To minimise travelling time for players, the preferred areas would be within a 30/40-minute drive from their training grounds (Bishop Burton/Cottingham), as players tend to be training from 9am to around 5pm.

Host family placements vary from short term such as three nights for trailist, to long stay five or seven nights per week during the entire football season. We are recruiting for hosts families, who can offer either or both of these types of placements.

We require the host family to provide a welcoming friendly/family home environment, with a high-quality nutritional breakfast and evening meals, with occasional lunches. A set monthly allowance will be provided by the Club for the cost of the accommodation and meals.

Hull City is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all host family providers to share this commitment. This role involves work with young people aged between 16 to 18, and is subject to an enhanced DBS check. Clearance through the FA DBS system is required. As such this post is exempt for the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) and the applicant must disclose all previous convictions including spent convictions. Two references will also be required. Applicants will need to demonstrate that the accommodation meets certain EFL safety standards and assessments to be completed by the club’s Head of Safeguarding.

Hull City is committed to equality and inclusion, and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion, belief, and gender.

Further information is available from Caroline Adamson, Head of Safeguarding, by emailing
