FirstPoint USA, the world’s leading sports scholarship agency, has joined forces with global recruitment agency Football Careers to celebrate the new year with an exciting new partnership.

Launched ahead of next week’s United Soccer Coaches Convention in Philadelphia, which both organisations will be attending, the partnership has been created to enhance each other’s service offerings and boost the recruitment of talent on both sides.

Football Careers, a global football dedicated recruitment agency, specialises in the sourcing, recruitment, and support of candidates seeking new opportunities in football and clubs or organisations striving to hire the best talent. They bring with them over 30 years of combined experience in the industry. The company offers bespoke recruitment solutions to football clubs and organisations all over the world and has long-standing relationships with partners in the UK, Ireland, America, the United Arab Emirates, and beyond.

Andrew Kean, founder, and CEO of FirstPoint USA, welcomed the new partnership:

“We are delighted to team up with Football Careers and look forward to working with Piero and his colleagues to enhance our service offering. Several strong synergies exist between the two organisations and the partnership will allow us to tap into each other’s network and expertise to grow our respective businesses.

“FirstPoint USA are committed to providing a first-class service to clients and their families beyond their time at university in the United States, and Football Careers can help us develop our client offering for those looking to develop their careers within sport.”

Piero Carrino, Managing Director at Football Careers, added:

“The partnership with FirstPoint USA is one we are very excited about as we look to grow our business both domestically and in the US. They bring a fantastic network of colleges, universities, and coaches in America. As well as offering our bespoke range of recruitment solutions, we are also excited to support FirstPoint’s graduate clients with their first steps into employment through our CV-building services, job application support, and our global job board platform.

“Both companies are leaders in our respective fields and the partnership is a great fit with wide-ranging mutual benefits.”

Both FirstPoint USA and Football Careers will attend the United Soccer Coaches Convention taking place in Philadelphia from 11 – 15 January, the world’s leading soccer coaching event.
