Recruitment challenges in international markets
For football organisations and clubs abroad, finding the right people for roles can present certain challenges. In areas where the sport is still developing and growing, the talent pool may be small to begin with. If a high level of coaching qualification is needed for the job, the pool becomes smaller still. A number of other factors can affect and shape the hiring process, which is why we tailor our approach to suit each recruitment partner’s unique requirements and goals.
When Gary first began looking for suitable candidates to join the Soccer Academies team at Rangers FC, he struggled to connect with the right people. With a range of international positions available — from Northern Ireland to the United Arab Emirates — Gary needed to extend the reach of his job adverts and connect with qualified football professionals around the world. He commented:
“Football Careers is a very well-known company and has a stellar reputation for recruiting the right people for various positions within the football world. I wasn’t finding who I needed when it came to filling our roles, so I decided to get in touch with Football Careers to discuss beginning a recruitment partnership with them.”
