Performance Analyst: University of St Andrews - Saints Sport


Salary: £23,487 - £27,116 per annum, pro rata

In line with the growth and success of performance sport at The University of St Andrews, we are seeking to appoint a qualified, experienced, and highly motivated Performance Analyst on a half time basis. 

The Performance programme within Saints Sport at The University of St Andrews currently consists of 14 performance programmes and individually supported scholars. The Performance Analyst would work within the performance team to help enhance the student experience and ultimately improve individual and team performances and results. You will work closely with 7 permanently contracted sport specific directors and a number of performance coaches, plus our Strength and Conditioning team.

Many of our top teams compete at BUCS Premier League level and most in the top tier within Scotland. We aspire to increase the number of teams competing at the highest level of British student sport, with the aim of winning titles. Numerous sports also compete in national competition out with the BUCS/SSS structure to help give our students the most extensive and challenging experience possible. We have identified performance analysis as a key aspect to achieving this goal and have invested in infrastructure over recent years to reflect this. We are able to capture footage from training and matches from numerous cameras positioned around our facilities. These are complimented with mobile cameras for specific teams.
