The University of Manchester has over 16,000 students and staff taking part in organised sport and physical activity through the University. The University recognises the importance of an active lifestyle in both the experiences that these opportunities provide our audiences as well as the positive impact that they have on their wellbeing.

Delivery of our sport and physical activity strategy is through UoM Sport which is based across our campuses primarily in Fallowfield at the Armitage Sports Centre and in Manchester University Students’ Union on Oxford Road. Our activities take place across the city utilising a range of city facilities in supporting our community being active and promoting physical activity opportunities through our facilities and programmes.

The University is therefore looking to appoint a Sales and Marketing Officer to lead on the departments sales and marketing functions working with key colleagues across the service to ensure an engaged workforce in delivering against both participation based and commercial targets.

The successful candidate will take responsibility for overseeing the sales and marketing strategy for the department, identifying gaps in our provision and delivering new and innovative ways of our engaging our key audiences in physical activity through both traditional and electronic media.

The role holder will also be a strong team player, with the ability to lead and engage colleagues in a shared vision to effectively promote the services offered through UoM Sport. Building relationships with internal and external stakeholders is key to ensuring a joined-up approach across both UoM Sport and the wider institution whilst linking into key events delivered centrally in the organisation.

We are therefore looking for an enthusiastic and engaging individual to join UoM Sport to support our students and staff being more physically active in our programmes and facilities.

This role is considered suitable for hybrid working across our portfolio of locations and may include elements of home working if desired by the successful candidate, subject to business need.
