The Club are seeking an ambitious analyst to work with the Regional Talent Club (RTC) and WSL Academy who have shown exceptional progress in recent years with two players signing first team contracts in the recent 2020-21 season.
The department wants to continue improving this environment and this is an exciting opportunity to implement your ideas into a young, adaptable and forward-thinking analysis department with occasional opportunities to support the first team.
Primary duties of the role include filming all WSL Academy Squad matches and co-ordinate filming of RTC games across various age groups.
