Vacancy for Sales Executive

Vacancy for Sales Executive

An exciting opportunity to work within the football industry for one of the largest fan-owned clubs in the country, FC United are looking for a dynamic individual who shares our values and can communicate them to develop relationships with local businesses – and ultimately to secure sponsorship and advertising revenue for the club. Packages include perimeter boards, matchday sponsorship, web-site adverts and matchday dining.

FC United is one of the leading supporter-owned football clubs in the country, playing in the Northern Premier League and offering sports and community facilities from our iconic Broadhurst Park stadium site. We operate a function room with two standing bars, open on match days and functions, plus an additional match day bar located under the St Mary’s Road stand.

FC United are a fan-owned football club, set up in 2005 following the Glazer takeover of Manchester United. The club aims to develop strong links with the local community and strives to be accessible to all, discriminating against none. We operate a ‘pay-what-you-can-afford’ policy to season tickets and outside of a matchday provide facilities for adult and junior football. We are a Living Wage employer.

The men’s first team currently play in the Northern Premier League but with an objective to secure promotion back into the National League North in the next 3 years. Our women’s first team are also based at Broadhurst Park and play in the fifth tier of women’s football (with genuine ambitions of promotion to the fourth tier this season).
The club has over 1 million followers on social media.
Sponsorship and advertising are key revenue streams for the club, typically generating around £30,000 per year without dedicated resource.

By recruiting a specialist salesperson, we believe that the above figure can be exceeded, particularly by identifying businesses who share our values.

The post will be based at our 4,400 capacity Broadhurst Park stadium with travel out to local businesses as required.


FC United is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
We are committed to ensuring that all candidates for employment and voluntary roles at the Club are treated fairly, and that selection is based solely on the individual merits of candidates and on selection criteria relevant to the post.

Contract
The expectation is that this will be full-time but we will consider part-time to a minimum of 3 days per week.

Remuneration
Basic salary: based on £20,000 per annum / £1,667 per month (gross) with uncapped commission on sales.

Duration
April to August 2020 – the position will be reviewed on a monthly basis based on progress against sales targets
