Hours of work: Full time
Salary: Attractive Remuneration
Location: Predominantly Home-Based, with some occasional working from Bodymoor Heath Training Ground and travel to matches (where required)
Closing Date: Sunday 22 November 2020
We have two new, exciting opportunities for Video Scouts to work within our Men’s First Team Recruitment Department. The role will be predominantly home-based, although some occasional working at Bodymoor Heath Training Ground and travel to matches may be required.
Reporting into the Head of Scouting Operations, you will identify, review, report on and monitor target teams and players through video to support the club’s overarching recruitment strategy. These posts will help to assess players who may be of interest, and effectively utilise available data in order to make holistic and evidence-based recommendations regarding potential target players.
As a Video Scout, this post will compile and collate reports and focus on player priorities relating to the current composition of the AVFC squad. You will develop an in-depth understanding of the Club’s current players (First Team through to U18s) when assessing prospective new signings.
The successful postholder will have previous experience of working in either a scouting or coaching capacity at a professional football club (preferably at First Team level). You should be IT literate and have experience of using scouting systems such as ISF and Wyscout, or the ability to master them in a short period of time. As this role will be based remotely, you will need a strong work ethic along with the ability and self-motivation to work independently and remotely.
