Peterborough United coach Mark Robson is in the running for the vacant manager position at Gillingham.
Hessenthaler agreed with Gills chairman Paul Scally earlier this month to step down as manager after narrowly missing out on the League Two play-off places in each of the last two campaigns.
His new role will see him overseeing all footballing matters at the Kent outfit, with an emphasis on scouting and player recruitment.
'At the moment I'm really getting to grips with doing this job,' Hessenthaler continued.
'I'm thinking about the football club and I want to help them because I've got so much passion for the club.
'The scouting network at Gillingham has not been great over the past few years.
'We do need to look elsewhere in Europe. There's definitely players out there.
'If I can be big part of that, then fantastic.'
It is thought Robson has been interviewed for the League Two managers job vacated by Hessenthaler.
Robson is not new to Gillingham as he was a coach at the club previously and was actually the assistant manager under Hessenthaler.
He left Gillingham in 2010 to take up a similar role at Posh when Gary Johnson was in charge of team affairs.
He will also be familiar with players Charlie Lee and Chris Whelpdale who both left Posh for Gillingham at the end of the 2010/2011 season.
