A recruitment analyst’s fundamental role is to find the players who will help their team perform at a higher level. The first step in this process is to develop an in-depth understanding of what those players might look like. This helps to find not only the players with the required skills, but also those who are the most realistic targets in terms of availability, budget, and ability to gel with the current team set-up.
This module taps the expertise of analysts from the Premier League and Championship to outline how professional analysts develop a deep understanding of their team’s needs. It shows you how analysts use this knowledge to develop and refine recruitment searches. It also introduces some key recruitment tools, like player profiles and the Four Corner talent model.
Throughout the module, interactive exercises give you the chance to research a club’s requirements. At the end, you’ll help the Head of Recruitment and senior club staff develop a profile for a new defensive midfielder.
This module is CPD accredited.
