He is an Algerian professional football goalkeeper who last played for Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 club MC Alger and the Algerian national team.

Chaouchi began his career playing for his hometown club JS Bordj Ménaïel. He was the captain of the team during the 2005/06 season. His good form that season, conceding just seven goals in 32 games, had begun to create interest from other clubs. Faouzi signed for JS Kabylie from Inter-Régions club JS Bordj Ménaïel in 2006. It was confirmed that the goalkeeper was joining after agreeing terms and signing a three-year contract. He was pleased to be joining such a club.
Chaouchi signed for ES Sétif in June 2009, after the club won the race to recruit the goalkeeper who was known for his outstanding performances at JS Kabylie, where he had shown his abilities and his dramatic shot stopping. He was also known for his extrovert humor prior to making his move to ES Sétif. In December 2009, Faouzi helped his side win the North African Cup of Champions tournament by beating ES Tunis in the final, after a penalty shoot-out. He was selected as the best goalkeeper in the tournament.
On 19 July 2011, Faouzi joined MC Alger, signing a one-year contract with the club. In June 2012, he flew to Turkey to negotiate contract offers with newly promoted Süper Lig clubs Elazığspor and Kasımpaşa S.K.
