As part of an exciting expansion of our Commercial & Marketing team, Connacht Rugby can announce that applications are open for four new roles in the department.
The jobs are primarily in the field of Marketing and Communications, and will result in a significant extension of our digital media presence.
The club are currently in the process of recruiting a new Senior Marketing Manager
who will oversee the Connacht Rugby brand and help to drive the next stage of its development.
The Communications team is also expanding with two new Social & Communications Executive
positions, to be filled in the coming weeks. One of these roles will be a full-time role to work on the promotion of Pro team activities, with a second employee working solely on Club & Community content and promotion and shining a light on the fantastic work happening in the four corners of the five counties every day.
Connacht are also recruiting for a new Content Marketing Executive
, who will work primarily as the club’s first in-house videographer as well as graphic designer. This person will have a flair for filmmaking and will oversee the development and launch of our TikTok channel and provide engaging content for all of our social platforms.
Head of Commercial & Marketing Philip Patterson says:
“This is a really exciting time for the Commercial & Marketing team, and Connacht Rugby as a whole. As the club continues to build and grow, with that comes growing expectations from our supporters and partners for engaging content, insightful stories and an ‘always-on’ 24/7 digital media presence on our website and social media channels.
These new roles will be an integral part in helping us grow our brand both in the short-term, and the long-term as we prepare for our historic redevelopment of The Sportsground.”
