Position Vacant

The following advert appeared in Shmais.

I have one question. In the last paragraph it says they are looking for a candidate who is "
able to identify with the ethos of Chabad". Does this mean that they will accept someone who is not Chabad??!!

Optimistically, this could be the opportunity for the implementation of many of the changes we would like to see - at least in Yeshivah College. While I would like to be positive I know that the appointee will have an uphill battle. I sincerely wish him hatzlocho rabbo.
