An Opportunity To Work With TNS FC Academy – Part-Time Scout Required

Part-time Academy Scout (Incentivised)

With our Academy developing, in terms of the infrastructure, we are now looking to develop a Talent ID department to enable us to discover players that may enhance the standard within our existing Academy. There are a number of spaces open in selected age groups and a number of scouts already in place helping to add to that. Please note that preference will be given to candidates who live in the following areas: Shropshire, Cheshire, Wrexham and North Wales.


Scouting part-time for TNS will entail:

– Observing grassroots fixtures and identifying talented individuals with the potential to play for the Academy.

-Liaising with the Head of Coaching/Head of Recruitment to schedule and record scouting activity.

– Submitting scout reports using the Academy’s scout-report template.

– Building a network of contacts in order to receive player recommendations.

– Adherence to Academy safeguarding and welfare policies.

– Liaising with Lead Phase coaches in regard to Academy squad composition.


We would like our scouts to be able to:

– Demonstrate an eye for talent in discovering players of Academy standard.

– Take initiative in planning their own scouting schedules.

– Build successful networks of well-positioned people within the grassroots game.

– Take the time to develop themselves through CPD and to understand how our Academy operates.
