Just guessing abased on what’s on the EFC site on the staff listings page, http://www.essendonfc.com.au/our-club/employment/staff-listing
they list Football department positions as:
Football – Coaching
Football – Physical Performance
Football – Operations & Compliance
Football – Medical
Football – Learning & Wellbeing
Football – List and Recruiting
Ball’s position reports to Lisa Lawry, who is GM, Leadership, Learning, People and Culture
and this is listed as Leadership, Learning, People and Culture (i…e no Football in the title).
Other person in that department is Florian Gaylor - People and Culture Advisor
so… it may fall outside of Football Dept cap.
cough but a board member who likes to frequent these boards would have a much better idea than I.
