HBUFC Employment Hub

The HBUFC Employment Hub is our employment initiative that enables our beneficiaries to receive subsidised work opportunities and pathways into full time employment. On average, over 90% of our senior players are employed through this programme, and currently over 250 of our beneficiaries are in employment.

After interviews and assessments, our beneficiaries are taken through a Work Readiness Course, safeguarding training, and police clearance checks. We then seek to place them into suitable part-time employment to enable them to both gain work experience and earn an income while pursuing their football careers.

HBUFC sources funds to supplement salaries so that our players are earning a living wage, while motivating local businesses to take on good staff who they are able to afford, even in difficult economic times.
