VACANCY: Academy Host Families

Plymouth Argyle Football Club is looking for family homes that could accommodate our young players from 16 to 18 years of age, who need to live away from home while they undertake their training with the club.

We are looking for candidates who can provide a 'home from home' for our young players in a high quality, safe environment, where our apprentices will be comfortable to live and study during their weekly training schedule.
The role will require providing residential accommodation each week during the football season, alongside providing a nutritious evening meal, occasional lunches and occasional laundry facilities.
We are keen to hear from anyone who feels they will be able to offer a welcoming home to our young players, particularly those living in areas close to the club’s Home Park Stadium, in the Stoke, Peverell and Mutley areas of Plymouth.
Argyle is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and adults at risk and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
Applicants will be required to undergo a full assessment with our club staff, including a home inspection and Satisfactory enhanced DBS Criminal Record Check, before a decision can be made as to suitability.
A fee is payable to the host family for the duration of the placement.
If you think that you are someone who can work with the club to care for these players and provide the best chance for our young footballers of the future, then we would love to hear from you.
If you would like further information on this opportunity then please email and, giving brief details of your circumstances and the area in which you live.
