innovative new one-stop recruitment company for football opens in Glasgow
An innovative new football recruitment company, Football Careers Ltd, has launched in Glasgow, bringing together two of football’s most experienced recruitment professionals. The two principals are Piero Carrino and Stewart Macgregor, both well-known figures in professional football.
Carrino, who is Managing Director of global business Sport Careers Agency Ltd, has an already impressive client base including professional organisations such as the LMA, The PFA, FAI, and FAW Trust. Macgregor, of player representation agency Ark Sport, has over 20 years of experience in professional sports recruitment. The new company will be standalone from the two existing businesses.
Football Careers aims to support professionals from grassroots to backroom staff and board level with a range of recruitment services and self-marketing tools. The aim is to bring together their skill-sets in the new business, creating a new type of end-to-end recruitment offering.
Concentrating solely on the football market will allow Football Careers to be the leading go-to agency for both individuals and clubs alike. Another significant focus to the business will be to provide in-depth career support and guidance to players retiring and looking to transition into a role within football or the corporate world.
Recruitment support will be the primary offering whereby the agency will be sourcing, screening and presenting a shortlist of candidates for key roles in clubs. Secondly, a comprehensive job board will be updated frequently with the latest vacancies from around the world, allowing candidates to receive alerts or browse through listings.
Piero Carrino said:
“I’m delighted to be linking up with Stewart and combining our experience to create Football Careers. Together we’ll be able to offer our client base a 360° recruitment solution and our candidates a great route to market.
“We have a strong relationship and by collaborating, we can offer a one-stop shop, and make a big impact on the global football industry. It is a sector which offers many types of careers, much more than just players, and we are well-placed to help at every level.”
On the joint venture, Stewart Macgregor added:
“Nothing quite like this exists in football, a place where anyone in football looking to fill any role can come to one agency and do that. Equally, candidates can come assured of good quality employment being available.
“It’s a natural step for both of our agencies to link up after working closely together for a number of years. We are confident our assets and skills will provide a professional agency that sports professionals can trust and be assured of a high-quality service.”
