Retired Essendon player Adam Ramanauskas will take up a part-time development job with the AFL club.

Ramanauskas' role will include mentoring the Bombers' younger players, as well as acting as a match-day runner.

The 27-year-old cancer survivor and 2000 premiership player, who retired at the end of last season, said he still had a desire to be involved in more success with the club.

"It has always been good being at the club so whatever I can do to help out the younger guys to fast-track them and make us a successful club again, I'll do," Ramanauskas said.

Essendon football manager Paul Hamilton said Ramanauskas was ideal for the job because he was very well respected and liked at the club, as well as boasting great football knowledge and experience.

"One of the advantages with Rama is that he has got the automatic respect. He will be able to play a mentoring role with the younger players," Hamilton said.

"He has a good understanding of the way players think so we believe he is going to be very beneficial to the way the younger players develop. It is really perfect for him."
