Under 18 Assistant Coach - Aston Villa FC

First Team Video Scout

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.

For further information please see the attached Role Profile.

Aston Villa Football Club is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and adults and expects all staff and volunteers to endorse this commitment.

Aston Villa Football Club celebrates the diversity of its Club and its supporters.  As part of this, Aston Villa Football Club is an Equal Opportunities Employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

    Dear soccer HUB,

    I’d just like to enquire about any roles which are home based due to my living in Australia. I’d love to work for any English club I love the game personally a liverpool fan but would still love to work for other English teams even in the lower English leagues. My passion is football I can offer data analysis on players on matches training , I can scout from home through watching live games or non live games I have tremendous knowledge in football I’ve even written articles for Sportsmole and MotoWire I just love the game it’s just so unfortunate that I live in Australia. Please let me know if their is any positions available remotely from home thank you.
