Work Experience

Our Work Experience weeks are designed to give year 10 students the opportunity to work with the Foundation of Light, the official charity of Sunderland AFC. 

We use our position as an unparalleled route into traditionally 'hard to reach' communities, providing all ages the chance to access our wide range of activities and programmes.

During your time with the Foundation, you will work across all departments of the business by observing, supporting, and integrating with our full-time staff and the community we work with.

Your work experience will involve working in some of the following areas:

  • Administration/Customer Service
  • Marketing and Communications 
  • Finance
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Youth Work
  • Disability Coaching
  • Football Development Coaching (evenings)
  • Schools Curriculum Coaching
  • Adult Education
  • Leisure Assistant 

To show your interest in our work experience opportunity, please register your interest at the top of the page. A member of staff will be in touch in due course.

Unfortunately, we can't accept everyone’s request and will look at each request on an individual basis.
