Scottish football club Celtic is looking for a director of

multimedia and communications.



The newly-created position represents a potentially radical shake-up for

Celtic’s communications function, with the new recruit overseeing a

restructured media and PR brief at the club.



Former PR manager Peter McLean has resigned after six years in the

job.



He was in charge of the existing three-strong press office and Celtic’s

publications division, which had five staff. PR executive Iain Jamieson

is deputising in the interim.



The club said it was ’talking to a couple of key people’ about the

expanded role, and was unable to comment further. However, it is known

that internet and new media are being targeted as potential growth areas

for Celtic.



It already has a web site and is keen to develop its match day

television arm, Celtic TV.



Celtic is no stranger to turbulence off the field, having just appointed

its fourth football team manager in as many years in Martin O’Neill.



The club turned over pounds 22 million in the six months to December

1999 but pre-tax profits fell from pounds 2 million to pounds 748,000.
