The individual will work closely with the First Team and Academy Sports Science and Medicine staff, as well as the Club and Academy chefs, to enhance the nutritional strategies across the Club.
A key part of the role will be to develop the Club-wide nutrition philosophy, and ensure it aligns to the needs of the players.
