Search for Parry’s replacement steps up

Liverpool have intensified their search for departing chief executive Rick Parry’s replacement.

Recruitment specialists Odgers Berndtson have been appointed to head hunt Parry’s successor and they have now placed an advertisement on their official website as they look for the right person to fill the role. According to the advert, a "significant package" is available to the successful candidate.

The role also asks for someone with: “outstanding leadership” who can give the club “clear direction to the club through its next phase of development, ensuring it performs exceptionally both on and off the field.” And “Create a culture of excellence and ambition”. The candidate must “Ensure the Manager and his support group has the necessary resources and support to enable the team to win European and Domestic Championships.” And “Empathy with the values and heritage of the most successful football club in the history of English football and a deep-rooted love of the game.” Notably there is no mention of direct involvement in footballing matters, but the candidate “will drive the commercial side of the club, leveraging the monetary value of the brand and world-wide fan base.”

The applications for the role need to be received by 8th June, which indicates interviews could possibly take place in the coming weeks and the role filled before the end of June.
