As a strategic lead in football, FA tutor and mentor, and Academic within the field of sport, to become a member of staff for this organisation would be something I would hold truly dear, and would approach with professionalism, absolute dedication, drive and passion in order to achieve success.
Since completing my undergraduate degree in Sport from the University of Birmingham, the majority of my experiences related to suitability for this position have taken place at West Bromwich Albion FC. I began my time there in 2006, and over the years have held positions of Community Coach, Sport Coordinator, Development Officer, RTC Technical Director, General Manager, disability coordinator, and more recently, Head of Sport. Every facet of sporting delivery and development is within my remit and management in this role, such as international football development, basketball and cricket strategy, HR, line management, culture improvement, staff recruitment and retention, and since March, embedding a robust CPD programme across the entire organisation.
An advantage of working for this company has been the adherence to branding guidelines, and respecting the importance of representing the global brand, and improving the overall visuality of the club globally.
I am proud to have developed many skills which can be transferred to this role. These include shaping a multi-disciplinary team, developing a CPD programme for 75+ staff, working within a budget, time management, mentorship, measuring impact, IT and keynote proficiency, outstanding line management, developing partnerships and networks, and achieving KPI’s within the strategic vision of my role.
My 4-year tenure in WBA Academy as YDP coach allowed me to explore pedagogical cases, coach the person as well as the player, and develop my own coaching identity. The club philosophy of coaching and playing were embedded in me early on, and I feel comfortable in not only articulating what this philosophy looks like, but have also developed several coaching philosophies since, more recently in my role as Head of Football for University of Wolverhampton. I became proficient in PMA and understood the Club’s requirements to meet EPPP. All of this was within a backdrop of delivering high quality sessions to some of the most talented players locally. Since moving on from this experience, the last five years of department leadership has provided me with essential experiences, qualifications and learnings around how to get the best from a multi-disciplinary team. Coaching staff, apprentices, HR staff, development officers, basketball legends and cricket partners all encompass a cohort for which I have been able to embed a culture and work ethic within a disciplined structure. Clear vision and creation of a realistic, clarified strategic framework has combined with valued partnerships with local NGB’s and other stakeholders to hold a national reputation for outstanding people and projects. Connecting vision to shaping an MDT approach has come to fruition recently as my role and influence with WBA Women FC has seen us grow in number of teams, an improved player pathway, sports science and psychology staff recruitment, and creating a Board of trustees to improve governance.
As much as I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at WBA, this job is one where I feel I can sharpen my skills, find new challenge, but also impact a larger scale programme within an institute of real history and tradition in the sporting world. The idea of integrating a multi-disciplinary team excites me. To develop and grow people to achieve their objectives and make them feel inspired as we reach our strategic goals.
As an FA coach mentor, I have been able to hone my skills of developing rapport, supporting a coach journey, being a sounding board, being critical, and shaping a plan to improve. This has been complemented within my MSc in Sport Coaching, where some topics I have covered involved advanced pedagogies, digital technology in Sport Coaching, player development, and contemporary issues in sport coaching. One of my more outstanding pieces of work was around talent identification and development. This got my interest around the subject area, so I have undertaken more research in what other sports and countries do on terms of talent ID. This research would be vital for this role, and I’d love to develop my knowledge in this area even more. I am excited to complete this degree in September 2021 and am keen to share my learnings from this course in this role, not least my dissertation focus around using reflective practice.
From a personal perspective, I have three clarified core values of pride, humility and relentless endeavour. Should I be considered for this role, these values will be evident in all aspects of the recruitment process, and deployment. I am dedicated to learning and self-improvement and take CPD extremely seriously. My MSc degree is testament to this. I am also beginning an ILM Management course in September. On completion of this I shall look again at what CPD can get me closer to reaching my goals. Formal qualifications will also be aligned to a robust programme which also includes reading, mentorship, and detailed networking.
Having successful headed recruitment teams in the UK and abroad since 2008, I have gained an abundance of experience and skills that enable me to successfully lead and educate my teams to ensure club targets are met in line with the recruitment strategy. Through my career I have helped shape the player recruitment processes ensuring that the methods used are both thorough and effective, using both traditional scouting methods, alongside the use of technology. My key strength is identifying talent enabling the club to strengthen their position throughout the season. Communication is essential in this role in order to build relationships and partnerships with staff members and key stakeholders within the industry sphere. I am passionate about vital networking opportunities which has aided me in both my professional and personal growth. I have continued to invest in networking and business relationships throughout my career and I believe that I possess the skills and experience needed to help your club blossom.
I have over 11 years of leadership experience in the sports industry, planning and implementing a wide range of successful events and projects. I am a sociable team player and have developed strong partnerships with GB athletes, corporate businesses, volunteers, and national governing bodies to deliver initiatives in support of the Olympic legacy. My roles in delivering these events have varied: from initiating event ideas, to managing the necessary administration such as putting together athletes’ schedules, managing databases and the financial budgets. I am also a successful fundraiser, having raised around £30,000 for athletes and schools over a 2 year period.
Since starting at GB Active 5 years ago, I have been organising multiple bootcamps. These regular training sessions have offered opportunities for GB athletes to bring their skills and inspiration to the community. Alongside the bootcamps, I have delivered more bespoke events, such as arranging kayaking experiences for the public with a world class kayaker, or bringing some inspiring sporting stories and athlete-delivered activities to over 100 people at a city bank’s wellbeing day. Before GB Active, I arranged workshops across the country bringing over 20 GB athletes to around 300 schools. I managed the logistical details of these events, mapping out travel and accommodation, and capturing data to efficiently analyse the feedback in order to adapt our services. I also liaised with government public health programmes, as Change For life, to ensure our messaging was aligned.
I currently volunteer with the England Touch Rugby Association, remotely coordinating sports development officers in the South East region of the UK. This has involved communicating closely with the six voluntary development officers on a regular basis to plan, assess and adapt strategic outlines on developing touch rugby in schools. During my time so far, I have extended the programme from secondary schools to primary schools by developing operational and training programmes for rugby workshops, competitions and events.
Over my career I have accumulated considerable insight into the workings of the sports industry and have developed detailed experience in the administrative functions of running successful events. I am really keen to apply these skills to a new role, supporting and being part of a sociable team on delivering projects, programmes or events.
I attach my resume for your consideration. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the role further and how my skills can help.
I have been on the Football Scouting Worldwide course run by Steve Simmons and am now looking to find employment in the football industry.
I am currently working on a voluntary basis for Millwall as a Video Scout. I am happy to provide examples of my work, I have a portfolio of Player Profile Dossiers and Next Opposition Reports.

I would describe myself as a hard working, ambitious and open-minded person and coach. I am very passionate about coaching and love improving individuals and teams. I would say my main strengths as a coach come from my elite playing background, my thirst for knowledge, learning something new every day and the ability to create training sessions that are interesting, enjoyable, dynamic, are all things I professionally carry out every day whilst coaching. I believe a coach should have a positive effect on young people, coaches really do impact the lives of our future generations. They teach them vital life skills, which extend way beyond the principles and techniques of their sport. I believe sport is a vehicle to teach life skills, which enable athletes to become meaningful contributors to society. My role is therefore to develop self-awareness in my players to make positive life decisions, this means I must be an effective role model to all my players, this is something I carry out in every day life.

I have never really believed in the effect of these few lines. I am more than just adjectives and skills and I don't think I can be summarised in just one page.
Therefore, what I want to make sure before starting with my presentation, is that you know I will always offer honesty and dependability , in any possible situation.
I have a genuine passion for the Sport world and, in particular, its economic implications; be they the financial impact that sponsors and broadcasting rights have, or the effect of media interaction on fans and enthusiasts. I have a strong professional background, but I feel a change is needed at this stage of my life. This is why I decided to follow my passion, attending a Sport Management Master Degree last year, which I obtained at the end of September 2017. I strongly believe that being involved in a Sport-related environment is what I need, and it is where I could perform at my best.
I am a charismatic and engaging team-player, energetic and innovative in my approach to achieving goals with benefits to the whole group, not just myself.
My career as a rugby player helped me to develop the ability to remain calm in high pressure situations and to be a quick but logical thinker, together with a strong sense of belonging and how to behave in a team, while the most important thing that I learnt from my work experience is that getting things done is extremely important, but enthusiasm and being pro-active make the difference.
I consider myself as a practical self-starter, who is not afraid to accept new challenges and get fully involved in a 360° working experience. I am eager to put in practice the first-class analytical and quantitative tools that the academic studies brought me. Furthermore, my learning-by-doing approach makes me able to work hard to pick things up quickly.
I love working with other people, especially when they have different backgrounds; I like to think that everyone has a different story to tell. Indeed, I appreciate international contexts and learning foreign languages, which I believe to be useful competences in an international market, such as Sports and Entertainment.
I am at your disposal for any further information about my candidacy,
Thank you for your time and consideration, Gianluca Andreatta
