I wonder if the successful applicant will use 'that table' to sort all the sponsorship opportunities that come flooding in?

What is a "come budget"?

Performance based or maybe a spelling error.  :dontknow:

Maybe itís cruel to pee all over SCís  latest out of the box idea for a Club the size of us.   Have to admit though itís never dull with him around.

Lakeland said the Club needs massive improvement right the way through.  Maybe this is just the start.   Hopefully the appointment will be made in good time for the person to really get their teeth into it over the summer.

Is it just me, or has Cleeve handed the AI a handful of "Cleeve" words and let it run riot ?

With his "luck" in retaining back of house staff, perhaps he should cut out the middle man and just let AI run the show. Couldn't do much worse.
The only way is up.

I'd be interested what the financial targets are that has to be achieved.  Pound of flesh springs to mind.

Have to admit when I noted the header, I wrongfully imagined it to be vacancy to replace physio or as officially list Sports Therapist Linzi Mirams.
Anyone know why Linzi is leaving the club ?

I would say quite a bit more than that. Maybe nearer £75k basic with 0TE of £125k. Further Bonus if the income generated helps the Club to win promotion. If the Club progressed through the leagues all these would need to increase (just as players wages would).

Car, pension, health care etc.

People able to fill these positions don't come cheap.

Weary, my daughter Lynsey is the Physiotherapist for the Lynn Ladies and I think she said Linzi is pursuing a slightly different line of work in patient care.

And thankyou for making the distinction between a Sports Therapist and a Chartered Physiotherapist. They have completely different skillsets which only overlap in the treatment of injuries.
