Couldnt think of anything worse converting a hobby and fun into a full time job. Notwithstanding this is STFC.
Credit to RA for taking the plunge.

IF RA left under any sort of cloud you can guarantee one thing for sure. He will be NDAd up to his eyeballs.

I'd like to think that he would speak up in the event of any malicious mismanagement for example, regardless of NDA. All part of the so called safety blanket for the fans I guess.

I suspect that everything is all reasonably well & good behind the scenes though.

Only if he signed it, he would be due his notice and whatever was in his contract, its only if they go beyond that would he potentially get into NDA territory.

Wouldn't all club employees have an NDA element in their contracts of employment anyway?

That would prevent all sorts of leaks & rumours from circulating.  Zipped
Oh..

Imagine having to deal with the opinions of Facebook posters as a full time job.

Gross oversimplification but still.

I think the job is definitely ageing RA. He is a top chap and sad to see him stressed.

Dont you think that they would be built into his COE in the first place? Im not referring to anything salacious about leaving and I realise that I should read and reread my OP to save any misinterpretation.

I like Rob, not least because my Mum made him go fetch ketchup at the Stevenage game for my son, which he did without blinking.  "mother, that's the CE!" - "so what, we needed ketchup, they should have it on the table".

I am hoping that this is not true, he has the club at his heart and becoming the CEO of a football club is a massive jump from his previous job at Nationwide.

Football clubs are an entity in themselves and no amount of training could prepar you if you have never done the job before, a real on the job training, straight into the cauldron, especially when you are following on from the shitshow previously at the club.

Maybe he feels he has bitten off more than he can chew? I hope that if he has concerns then he will work through it, its not like there is a training course in "how to be a CEO at a football club". Its a massive job and carries a lot of stress.

Fingers crossed he can work through any doubts he may be having and soldier on to better times.

You'd think so, wouldn't you? And yet, if there's demand, there's always someone out there who'll create something - https://www.ucfb.ac.uk/your-degree/executive-education-courses/ceo-of-a-sports-organisation/
