Dons to sign Chief Operating Officer

Applications invited for new role

31 August 2017

AFC Wimbledon are seeking to appoint a Chief Operating Officer to help the executive team manage the increased workload resulting from the new stadium project and the club's continuing success on and off the field.

The new recruit will report to Chief Executive, Erik Samuelson, and will take over responsibility for some aspects of the club's day-to-day running from him, as well as planning for the Dons' long awaited move to a new stadium in Plough Lane in the club's spiritual home in Merton.

The search for a suitable candidate will be led by the Board of the Dons Trust, which oversees AFC Wimbledon on behalf of 3,500 shareholding fans.

"The workload tackled daily by our existing management team has grown massively in the years since we became a professional club. Our ambitious plans for the future mean that additional capacity, skills and experience will be needed," said Matthew Breach, Chair of the Trust.

"We will be looking nationwide to find someone suitably qualified and a top priority will be the need for them to really understand the culture of a fans-owned club."

Applicants have until 22 September to submit their details. It is hoped that the Chief Operating Officer will begin work by January.

Prospective candidates can obtain details about the job from: afcwimbledon@sriexecutive.com .
