BSUK looking for a Commercial Manager

Sat 23 Dec 2017

BaseballSoftballUK is looking to recruit a new full-time permanent member of staff to lead on our commercial work.

Baseball and softball in the UK have come a long way in recent years, more than doubling the number of regular players from around 10,000 in 2008 to more than 24,000 today.  With both sports returning to the Olympic Programme in 2020, Major League Baseball running engaging events in this country and investment into baseball and softball from Sport England, this is an exciting time for the sports.

The job

The role of Commercial Manager would be well suited to someone who is excited by relationship-building and developing new commercial concepts.  There’s no need for you to have an interest in our sports, but a passion for what we’re doing is essential.

Reporting directly to the CEO, you will need to be organised and creative.  You will be asked to oversee existing commercial relationships while building new ones.  You will need to be prepared to create and deliver on a commercial strategy.

BaseballSoftballUK has a handful of important corporate clients, some of whom take part in corporate softball through our Hit the Pitch Programme in addition to some suppliers and stakeholders.  We hope that the Commercial Manager will enable us to develop new relationships with advertisers, sponsors and national funding partners. The new Commercial Manager will also help us create new concepts for commercial events and activities.

The organisation

BaseballSoftballUK is a fun organisation to work for, with a small team of committed and passionate sports developers.  We are looking for someone who will bring a corporate professionalism to the team.  We turn over just shy of £1 million a year, 70% of which is currently from government and lottery funding.  The work of the new Commercial Manager will be directed to reducing this percentage by increasing revenues from other sources.

Application process
