Who we are: We are Everton Football Club and we are icons of world football. As one of the bastions of the global game, with a rich and successful history, we are now setting our sights on a new, exciting future.
With a proud and illustrious past, the Club is currently embarking on a new and exciting journey with the construction of our new stadium on the banks of the River Mersey. With that exciting development comes an ambition to have a men’s and women’s senior squad that is competing regularly at the top of domestic and European football.
Our values underpin how we behave, how we represent our club in our city, and across the world of football, and how we look after one another daily. They provide a framework for how we work with partners, suppliers, and most importantly our fans.
About the opportunity: For decades, our Club has been one of the most respected and renowned in football. Its vision to develop young players who are technically and tactically capable of playing for Everton’s men’s senior squad, or having a career in the professional game, remains as focused as ever.
We now have an extremely exciting new opportunity for a strategic and dynamic leader to join us as Head of Emerging Talent.

Using your expertise, you will service the men’s senior team succession planning as well as the U18-U21 age group, establishing and implementing a coverage strategy within the appropriate markets; monitoring, scrutinising and evolving post-implementation.
You will build positive relationships not only across the Everton Family but also externally, to ensure we are recruiting the very best players.
