Full time Leadership & Management

Job Description

Reporting directly to the Chairman, this role will define the future DNA of the club.

You will be a forward-thinking individual with exceptional analytical skills combined with a keen eye for detail. You will be required to write a five-year plan that maps out the club’s plans to attract, develop, and nurture the very best talent available.

With an excellent Academy already in place, first class facilities worthy of a Championship Club and a new Indoor Dome awaiting planning approval, the foundations are already in place to mitigate failure and ensure success.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a track record of success albeit in another related sport or industry and be responsible for assembling a small but highly dedicated team from the ground up.

Salary and associated benefits will be no obstacle for the right person, so if you are up to the challenge, in the first instance send a letter, no emails please, explaining in detail why you consider you are the right person for this role together with your salary expectations.

For the avoidance of any doubt if successful you will be based at the club’s headquarters and be required to live within a one hour driving distance of the ground. If you can’t or aren’t prepared to do this then please do not apply. Compromise is not in our vocabulary.

All Applications should be addressed ‘Private and Confidential’ to:
