Atomic Sport has begun the recruitment process to fill three new roles at the agency, following on from a year of expansion in Ireland, the UK and further afield.
The roles include that of a Sports Account Executive based in Dublin, a Sponsorship Consultant based in London and a freelance panel of Sport and Sponsorship writers to service accounts across both countries.
The Sport Account Executive will report into a Senior Account Manager, with core responsibility for delivering client projects to successful completion in an efficient and timely manner.
This important role sits within a busy team, so the position requires excellent communication skills, an understanding of agency workflows from briefing to client service, and most importantly, a passion for building a career in the areas of sports marketing and sponsorship.
The main responsibilities will include the management of sports project workflow through the agency.
This includes understanding and interrogating client challenges, developing great internal briefs for colleagues and managing workflows to ensure timely and efficient delivery of projects.
The essential requirements are a minimum of 1-year experience in a marketing/advertising/communications or sponsorship role, a minimum degree level qualification; a deep interest in a wide range of sports, sporting events and sports brands; a relentless curiosity and interest in self-improvement and the drive and desire to be part of a fast-moving, ever-evolving agency and team.
The same attributes will apply to the Sponsorship Consultant role based in London but with a minimum of four years experience in a high performing sponsorship team within a brand, agency or rights holder.
The role will report directly to the Director of Sport, with the core responsibility of leading Atomic Sport clients in the delivery of innovative approaches to the challenge of acquiring key sponsorship partners.
The role requires a strategic-thinker to manage sponsorship marketing programmes and oversee the development of sponsorship communities for our clients.
The third opportunity for Sport and Sponsorship Writers will also report into the Director of Sport, with core responsibility for delivering long-form copy in support of the agencies work promoting sports rights holders to the wider sponsorship market.
The role requires a mature individual who can appreciate the commercial requirements of our clients and can deliver the right content in a timely and efficient manner and a minimum one year experience in journalism or copywriting and a minimum degree level qualification in journalism, communications or a related discipline.
“2018 has definitely been a growth period for the agency,” said Atomic Director of Sport, Patrick Murphy.
“It’s been a privilege to continue our work with longstanding clients, such as Leinster Rugby, the FAI and Sport Ireland, while this year has also seen us start new projects and initiatives with the European Tour, Mitchelton Scott Pro Cycling, Horse Racing Ireland, the Camogie Association, and the Olympic Council of Ireland to name just a few.”
“The work we do in sponsorship, helping rights holders to promote their sponsorship offering and build their sponsorship pipelines, has brought us into contact with rights holders who are completely rethinking how they approach the challenge of acquiring new and bigger sponsorship deals.”
“We are currently delivering sponsorship solutions for clients in the UK, Spain, Norway, Italy, the Middle East and China, hence the need to bring on key people to add to the team.”
In order to apply for any of these jobs the first step is to send a CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck to those who wish to apply and if successful we look forward to working with you in the months and years to come.
