Notts County have appointed Graham Brown as their new chief scout as a replacement for Carl Heggs.
Heggs, who spent two games in charge of the Magpies, left the club a few days after the appointment of Martin Allen as manager in April.
Brown, who has also worked for Chelsea, Spurs and Sheffield United, leaves a similar role at Rotherham United.
"It's a great challenge and it's a club with a tremendous reputation, and it's a magnificent job for me," said Brown.
"I'm lucky enough to join Martin Allen, who's got a reputation as a very good coach.
"His teams are always well organised, strong, competitive and play good football.
"Hopefully we'll be near the top and pressing for promotion, because it'd be great to see Notts County in the Championship.
"That's our premium aim, I've just been here a short period and already you get caught up in the atmosphere."
Notts say Brown will be responsible for discovering talent and analysing future opposition.
Allen added: "I'm delighted to have got Graham Brown.
"He's got great knowledge of football at all levels, great energy, great enthusiasm.
"He just loves watching football matches and finding footballers."
