Pay and Prospects

MRKT is a small, independent company. In two years we have grown out of the blogging/football twitter world into a company working in elite level sport. Every person in the company, including the founders, has followed the same path.

Initially, we are looking for someone to provide independent expertise for which they will receive a small monthly retainer and access to our tools and video platform. There are no expectations on working hours, and no specific assigned tasks, your job is to build up your knowledge and share the expertise with us when asked.

If you do want a career in football we are in a good position to help make it happen. We promote from within, with 60% of our consultants having risen to work either full or part-time in professional football. We appreciate that many applicants will not have an ambition of working full time in football, this is no problem, we have consultants already who see this as a fun side project and ~90% of all people we’ve ever hired are still with us in some capacity.
