Williams departs as Rovers recruitment chief
by Jonathan Rest

Blackburn Rovers have begun the search for a new Head of Recruitment, following Gus Williams' surprise decision to quit the club after less than nine months.

Over the last six months, he has had to rebuild a recruitment department, from covering the UK to now covering Europe and emerging talent, and to one that has systems dedicated to ensuring data is at the centre of all decisions. Gus’ work leaves a legacy for his successor to build on and Blackburn Rovers will gain the benefits of that in years to come.

Williams (pictured) only joined in Rovers in July 2022 from the Football Association of Wales, but he is returning to the FAW as National Talent Pathway Manager where he will work on specific projects that will assist to widen the player talent pool.

 

He had previously spent over a decade at the FAW as National Talent ID Manager.

 

Rovers’ Director of Football, Gregg Broughton, said: “We would like to put on record our thanks to Gus for his work behind the scenes at Blackburn Rovers.

 

“Over the last six months, he has had to rebuild a recruitment department, from covering the UK to now covering Europe and emerging talent, and to one that has systems dedicated to ensuring data is at the centre of all decisions.

 

“Gus’ work leaves a legacy for his successor to build on and Blackburn Rovers will gain the benefits of that in years to come.” 

 

Rovers joined TransferRoom in 2022 in order to get accurate data and direct access to club decision makers worldwide.
