Flair is the mobile app for young football players. Our mission is to make every young football player feel like a star, no matter their level of ability.
Launched on the app stores in September 2018, Flair allows the everyday young football player to share their football journey by: creating match reports after games, tracking their stats and praising teammates and friends for their skills. Our focus so far has largely been on improving the product. However, heading into the new football season, we’re now adopting a growth mindset - we want Flair to be a household name among young people who play football.
So, we’re now looking for a creative, content aficionado who can help us take our brand to the next level. Your role will begin this summer when Flair launches our annual Instagram football challenges. Each week across summer, players from all over the UK and Ireland will compete for a position on Flair’s leaderboard. So, prepare yourself to edit videos from some of the most skillful young footballers, and see if you can add that extra flair to their entries.
