Haverhill Rovers look to recruit a Commercial Business Manager

Haverhill Rovers is a FA Community football club who currently play step five football in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties league Premier division.

The club is located at the fantastic New Croft facility which is a £2 million investment completed in 2010 through the Haverhill Sports Community Association and consists of a new stadium along with an additional senior pitch and outside youth pitches.

The football club is currently looking to progress to step four football in the near future and provide a benchmark team for the many young local talented football players to aspire to be part of.

To enable this to happen, the football club is looking to recruit a new Commercial Business Manager who has the drive to lead a Commercial team within the club whose main objective will be to promote and market the club to potential investors who may wish to use the club to promote their business.

The successful candidate will lead a sub-committee who will meet on a regular basis to develop strategies on how best to promote the club and this strategy may include the following:

• Contact businesses who may be interested in sponsorship through the club.

• Organise match day sponsor incentives such as corporate tickets and hospitality.

• Identify fund raising opportunities the club can organise to raise funds.

• Advertise and promote the club through the media

Ideally the successful candidate should have experience in either business or marketing and should have the drive to support our clubs ambitions.

This is an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to become involved in a high profile football club that attracts a great deal of interest in the community and through the local press.

A commission related salary is also on offer and will be negotiated to any potential candidates.

If you’re interested in this fantastic role, you can submit your interest at: The New Croft, Chalkstone Way, Haverhill, Suffolk, CB9 0BW or by email to mike.tokley@hotmail.co.uk
