This level 1 module takes you to the heart of the recruitment analysis process. You’ll explore how elite analysts make the most of powerful data tools to find talent.
The module introduces data providers, the companies who supply professional analysts with data. We look at the different providers on the market and learn how analysts choose the right provider.
Then the module takes you through a player search in detail, using the well-known data provider Wyscout to search for a new centre-forward. You’ll learn the basics of running and refining data searches, and how to comb the platform’s video library. The module finishes by looking at the challenges of the player search.
This module is CPD accredited.

As a standalone module, it’s a complete introduction to the player search. If you already know the outlines of analysis, and want to dive into the practical “how-to,” this module is a good starting point. It prepares you to take our Level 2 course The Recruitment Analysis Process, which looks at the player search in a lot more depth.
