Job description

Sponsorship Manager – Racing

We’re now looking for a Sports Sponsorship Manager to join us and help build the great relationships we’re famous for.

Your role in the team

As the name suggests, we’re the title sponsor of Cheltenham. We’re also the Official Betting Partner of Chelsea and Tottenham. Not forgetting our sponsorship of the Darts, numerous Racing events and Anthony Joshua's fights, to name but a few. Sometimes big, sometimes small, but always important - we host around seven sponsorship events every month. So you’ll always be kept busy helping organise and deliver these.

With a strong focus on the Gee Gee’s and with our core brand values and business objectives in mind you’ll take the lead in developing and executing strategic and tactical sponsorship plans and ensure these are delivered in the best way. Working closely with offline & online marketing teams to develop tactical marketing plans, and detailed creative briefs for production of promotional/event material, always ensuring the best customer experiences.

You’ll need to be on the ball with measuring and tracking the results of our sponsorships, always evaluating our partnerships and reporting back with ideas for improvements

Skills needed?

We’d like you to have experience of delivering digital campaigns including knowledge of display advertising, search and social media and some experience of sponsorship and event delivery would really make you our front runner. A keen interest in sport with knowledge of the sporting calendar, in particular horse-racing is going to put you on course for a great career here.

With all the events we sponsor it is important that you are prepared to travel, and work the occasional weekend or holiday, but in return we offer a truly exciting opportunity to get involved in some of the UK’s largest sporting events.

What we offer?

We’ll welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare (or a cash alternative), an attractive pension package, life assurance, healthy gym discounts and a flexible benefits scheme. Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.

William Hill in Leeds

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.
