Footy Recruits is a job board for Aussie Rules players, coaches & football clubs.
It's a simple way for clubs to find players & coaches.
Port Fairy, Victoria, April 8, 2011 - Footy is no longer the same as it was decades ago. Club loyalty is different for a lot for todays young players. They no longer feel like they have to stay with one club for their entire playing career. Players who would like to play at a higher level want to be better paid for their hard-earned footy skills. Many are very interested in being signed by another club and so "Show me the money" is not frowned on like it used to be. But clubs still need to recruit new players each year, and they find it very difficult and frustrating to do. Until now there's been no adequate service that catered to this changing environment.
Footy Recruits is an online job board where clubs can search for players and coaches. Football clubs from all over Australia are now discovering the new service. Over 200 clubs are using Footy Recruits to find and sign new team members. The website has also had interest from over 30 countries.
How does it work? Firstly register and complete a profile. You can post your profile in one of three categories: Players, Coaches or Clubs. You can include your description, playing history, playing positon preference and photographs for your profile.
Clubs can search and advertise for players and coaches. For privacy, teams can't see other club's advertisements. They can browse the list of recent or most popular profiles, and they can receive email alerts and RSS feeds of the latest profiles.
Footy Recruits is not an employment agency. Footy Recruits is a job board where people place their profiles. Footy Recruits does not place people in jobs. That decision is made by the employer/club. It is the responsibility of the club to ascertain the suitability of any applicant.
Footy Recruits is a partnership, consisting of Kevin Hughes (ex AFL and VFL player) and Peter Bond (Website designer and developer).
