The South Melbourne Soccer Club is hiring a new Sales and Marketing team. Two positions are required to drive the sales and marketing function, both reporting to the General Manager.

South Melbourne is Australia’s most successful soccer club, regularly winning championships and providing players for the Socceroos.

We are keen to match our on-filed success off the park by hiring a highly capable management team to lead the Club into soccer’s exciting future. Recent macro developments for soccer have resulted in the game entering its brightest period for many years.

You will have experience in sales and marketing and be able to prove your ability to secure revenue from previous employers. Sports administration experience is not a pre-requisite however superior communication and customer service skills are essential.

Self-motivation, the ability to work independently, organisation and prioritisation are key requirements of these roles. You will work to budgets developed with the General Manager and work “behind the scenes” to develop the appropriate materials and packages to increase the Club’s revenue streams.

The ability to service sponsors, members and coterie groups and provide outstanding post-sale support are key requirements.

Key responsibilities of the roles include:
– driving revenue and working to budgets for corporate sales, memberships and coteries
– refining existing and developing new packages and marketing communications
– developing ongoing relationships and taking a “partnership” approach
– ongoing servicing of accounts and members via regular communications and providing outstanding customer service
– actively managing various Club databases to ensure all Club assets are leveraged effectively
– monitoring the Club’s brand and positioning in the market and undertaking activities to support desired positioning and brand attributes
