The Interim Board invite applications from those Blackpool fans who would be interested in being appointed to the role of Supporters’ Liaison Officer.
This volunteer position would suit someone with a high level of commitment to BFC who attends all/practically all home games and a reasonable number of away games, can demonstrate good communication skills, knowledge of and contacts with the fanbase of the football club and a proven ability to deal with the media and work as part of a team.
The nature of the role is such that the successful candidate will need to demonstrate an ability to make themselves available during the day, as well as evenings and weekends to meet varying demands the position entails.
The Interim Board envisage that the newly appointed SLO will look to appoint assistants to help them in the delivery of the role. At the recent Fans’ Forum it was suggested that a point of contact for each stand with close affiliations to those groups who populate each stand and an away game representative, all of whom would then report to the SLO, would be beneficial. It’s intended that the SLO will consider how best to implement the appointment of and management of their assistants to best serve the interests of BFC and its fans
The appointee will act as an advocate for both BFC and its supporters, pro-actively deal with a variety of supporter-related issues, assist the existing supporters’ groups with the staging of events, liaise and network with the SLO’s of other clubs, attend regional and national meetings and regularly meet with club officials, including the Board of Directors.
