Ayr United is on the lookout for two Supporters Liaison Officers for the start of the new season.

The club is seeking both a male and female SLO to take on a two-year term, to replace the outgoing official, Jamie Garrett.

The club says the SLO should actively seek contact with individual supporters and supporters' groups at home and away matches, and ensure their views are known to the club.

They should also engage with fans on social media, work to improve the relationship between supporters and the club, attend regularly monthly staff meetings and assist in the development and delivery of fan engagement and match day activities.

The club's managing director, Graeme Mathie, said "We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge 'thank you' to Jamie Garrett who has held the SLO position for the last five years.

"His commitment to engaging with fans, and also his support to the AU Player Fund, must be applauded, and his support has been hugely beneficial for the football club since I've arrived here.

"As a board, we continue to discuss ways we can move the club forward, and felt it would be beneficial to ask supporters to commit to a two-year term as SLO.

"This is in addition to offering the opportunity to both a male and a female supporter to ensure we can engage with as wide a demographic as possible amongst the supporter base.

"We are looking forward to reviewing applications, and in the event there is more than one individual who wishes to take on either role, we will look to engage with supporters to ensure their views are heard before any final choices are made.

"The role of SLO is vitally important to us as we continue to grow, and to make sure the opinions of the fans are heard on decisions we make moving forward."

Applications should be sent to applications@ayrunitedfc.co.uk before 5pm on Monday, May 13 with a cover letter highlighting any previous experience in a people-related field, and a note of why you should be considered for the position.
