Assistant Researcher Recruitment
Successful applicants need a keen interest in football, and preferably their local clubs and leagues. You need to regularly watch first-team games and be the sort of person that devours any snippet of information about their club or domestic league, whether it’s a team’s financial status or their competition history.
You need to be prepared to watch youth and development sides where possible and have a desire to get the relevant staff and young players represented as accurately as possible in the game.
We expect you to understand their inadequacies and be sensible about their skill level.
Being an Assistant Researcher is not a paid role, but it can be incredibly fulfilling, as attested by our Wolverhampton Wanderers researcher Dave Azzopardi.
"It's great to see all my hard work in a game that thousands of people play every day. Even just interacting with other assistant researchers is intriguing as you learn the way they watch football and how they interpret that into Football Manager."
