Due to the unprecedented circumstances we are all currently facing, including the ongoing suspension of football, and to ensure the financial impact of this is lessened, the HFA board has made the decision to agree with certain members of staff that they will be placed on furlough leave.
Effective from Tuesday 14th April 2020 all Herefordshire FA staff shall be on agreed furlough leave with the exception of those listed below:
Chief Executive Officer and Senior Safeguarding Lead, Alan.Darfi@HerefordshireFA.com
Office and Operations Supervisor, Paul.Cotton@HerefordshireFA.com
Senior Football Development Officer, Dan.Chance@HerefordshireFA.com
Designated Safeguarding Officer, Anna.Thomasson@HerefordshireFA.com
Football Development Officer/Marketing & Comms, Joe.Mathias@HerefordshireFA.com
Furlough leave is a temporary leave of absence for economic reasons and is designed to save jobs in the long term. The position will be kept under review in terms of when furloughed members of staff will be returning and any updates will be communicated. They are all looking forward to returning to their roles and continuing to support the game in Herefordshire as soon as possible.
We trust everyone involved in football will understand the basis for the decision and we apologise for any inconvenience it may cause. The members of the team who will remain working will continue to deliver a high level of service and support the grassroots football community during this testing time. We ask that any enquiries are directed through to the relevant staff members listed above.
Please continue to follow government advice and stay safe; we look forward to resuming football again soon.
