Process to recruit next Head Coach underway


Melbourne Victory has commenced the recruitment process to appoint its next Hyundai A-League Head Coach.

Chief Executive, Trent Jacobs, said during the current league postponement the club would take the necessary time required to ensure the process is thorough from start to finish.

“While there remains uncertainty due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a duty to best prepare our Club so we can emerge from this period as quickly, and in as strong a position, as possible,” Jacobs said.

“By commencing the recruitment process now, we afford ourselves the appropriate amount of time to ensure we acquire the best Head Coach available for our Club.

“We want a Head Coach who is technically and culturally aligned with the values of Melbourne Victory. We want to play an exciting, attacking brand of football and we know this is the expectation of our members and fans too.

“We have already received a significant number of approaches and applicants for the role, from Australia and abroad. 

“With the significant interest to date and the process now officially open, we are expecting a strong field of candidates. We look forward to working through the applications over the coming weeks and will draw upon external football expertise where required to support us.”

Melbourne Victory recognises there are currently restrictions with international travel but we remain open to international applicants, as well as domestic applicants. 

The Club will also continue to review all facets of its Football Department, to ensure it is best placed for success. 

Updates on the recruitment process will be made when appropriate.
