About us

We are a community club who compete at the highest levels of football on a global stage. Our ambition is to be a top ten Premier League club and a top four Women’s Super League club. A commitment to high performance and high professional standards is at the heart of everything we do.

Find us the future talent for BHAFC!

You will be on the lookout for top talent and letting us know! Of course, there are other aspects to the role such as being responsible for the smooth running of our Crawley Development Centre including overseeing the programme, the coordination of local grassroot scouts and ensuring all necessary paperwork is completed.

You will go out and identity local and regional talent for the development centre and ensure weekly scouting reports are uploaded within a timely fashion.

This is a great flexible opportunity, and we are positive our ideal candidate will feel like they are making a difference straight away. This is a part time role watching matches in the evenings and weekends.

Your scouting bio

You will have a strong network in Crawley and be able to build further on this and creating new relationships. You will need a FA Talent ID Award and strong knowledge and experience of the football industry in a similar or related role. Having a clear understanding of an Academy system and the recruitment of players would be essential as well! If you have a FA Safeguarding Children Workshop Certificate or FA Coaching in Football Certificate, this would be great, but is not a prerequisite.
