With over 20,000 Members and tens of millions of TV viewers per year, the Bulldogs commercial team is looking to recruit a new team member.

Reporting to the Commercial Manager, the Commercial Partnership Executive will oversee the servicing, fulfilment and renewal components of the Commercial Partnerships department as well as identifying and securing new commercial partners.

This position will manage the Commercial Services Coordinator and assist in achieving consistent profitable growth in commercial revenues, ensuring the retention and upgrading of existing partners through meticulous planning, servicing and management of partners. The role will also secure new commercial partnerships to the Club, with a focus on key sponsorship inventory, and will identify and develop new sponsorship categories and partnership opportunities for the Club.

To be considered for this role you will have broad experience in B2B sales, account/relationship management and/or sponsorship servicing roles that demonstrate a high level of engagement with medium-large enterprises and a proven record of negotiating and closing deals.

You will be self-motivated with a ‘can-do’ attitude, and a demonstrated ability to manage competing priorities and tasks simultaneously whilst maintaining a high level of attention to detail and meet deadlines in a fast paced environment. The ability to work independently as well as collaboratively within the wider team structure is key, as is the capacity to build and maintain relationships and strategically engage a diverse group of stakeholders. A friendly, professional, client focused approach is a must. Tertiary qualifications in Marketing, Sports Management or similar and/or experience working within Australian sport, media, agencies or venues is highly desirable.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with leading brands, secure commercial partners and ensure they receive outstanding service and continue to value their support of this iconic sporting club.

The remuneration package is negotiable depending upon skill level and experiences to include a fully maintained motor vehicle, laptop, mobile phone and attractive commission scheme.

This is a permanent full time position. Given the unique nature of the sports industry, working outside of office hours will be required including attending match days (Home Games) and other job related activities. Flexibility around the hours/days worked may be available, negotiable with the successful candidate.
