Upon hanging up his boots he joined former club Norwich City as a youth team coach before joining Eastern Counties League team Mildenhall Town in 2009 as manager.

He left a year later due to “unforseen circumstances and opportunities”.

Staying in football he spent two years working as a director and football coach for the Global Soccer Network where he coached young players in the USA, Cyprus, Canada and Tanzania.

In 2016 Charlton relocated to Dubai to work as head of the Go-Pro Sports academy coaching their under-16s and under-18 teams but returned to the UK after two years.

He now co-owns a sports surface company which manages, maintains and constructs tennis courts in the East of England and works as an advisor for a production company.

He has also worked as a match summariser and co-commentator on Bolton Wanderers games for BBC Manchester.
