Cambridge United Football Club is seeking to appoint a Chief Executive Officer...

Cambridge United play in League One of the English Football League having gained promotion from League Two in 2021. The Club is owned by three individuals who provide consistent financial support, has a highly respected board of Directors and has an established front office and football management team.

The current CEO took on the role on an interim basis in July 2019, initially for a year.
