Job Opportunity – Sports Marketing

 

ACCOUNT MANAGER, SPORT

           

The Sports Practice at Wilson Hartnell (WH) is looking for an account manager to join Ireland’s largest dedicated sports business consultancy. We are a team of 10 who are lucky enough to work on some of Ireland’s best-known sports sponsorships, rights-holders and sports businesses.

 

We are looking for an individual with five year’s experience preferably in an agency or sports business environment who is a master at effective media and influencer relations campaigns, demonstrates a high degree of experience in digital, possesses strong relationship and people’s skills, is  team player yet is able to work on their own initiative.  Passion for sport is a must, as is awareness and curiosity in people and the world around us.

 

We want candidates who are enthusiastic about understanding our clients’ business, possess the creativity to develop imaginative yet commercially sound solutions and who are willing to forge strong relationships with colleagues and clients alike. Self-motivation, appetite for hard work and desire for success are also a must.

 

WH believe that diversity in the backgrounds of our people are key strength, and whilst, a primary qualification in business, sports management, marketing or communications would be useful, it is by no means mandatory.

 

If you think you are the person we are looking for, please get in touch with alison.macdonald@ogilvy.com  before 6pm on Wednesday, 19th April.

 

WH is part of the Ogilvy Group in Ireland and of WPP, the largest communications company in the world. The person selected to fill this position will, therefore, have an excellent opportunity to enhance their experience by accessing best international PR practice.
