  • Work with the authority in Sports and Entertainment
  • Develop marketing strategies in a dynamic and exciting environment

At Gemba, we pride ourselves in being the authority in Sport & Entertainment, and we are currently looking for a Senior Marketing Consultant to join our team in our Sydney or Melbourne office.

We are looking for someone who lives and breathes the business of Sport and Entertainment, but also wants great work life balance. And when we say this job is 3 days a week, we mean 3. DAYS. A. WEEK. Not get paid for 3 but still work 4 or 5…..

You might be coming back from parental leave and wants to be home for kids in the morning and afternoon. You might be looking for a 4 day weekend (every week 🙂 ) Or maybe you just want a job that works around your lifestyle better than most.

This role, which is integral to our Sport and Entertainment Marketing Strategy team, will have you managing the development of commercial partnership strategy, creative planning and become a trusted senior advisor for our list of blue-chip brand clients – many of whom are the biggest and most active brands in Australian sponsorship. If you have a strong passion for the business of Sports and Entertainment coupled with 5+ years relevant commercial consulting, marketing, or allied experience, then this will be worth the read.

The Role

Reporting to the Head of Marketing Strategy, you will be responsible for building and managing client relationships whilst delivering projects that include sport and entertainment marketing plans, sponsorship strategies, asset planning, contract valuations, negotiation strategies and overseeing work that helps brands achieve their business goals via sponsorship

In addition to existing client work you will contribute to the business development pipeline and assist in the development and evolution of Gemba’s proprietary intellectual capital.

Additionally, there will be responsibilities to analyse competitor activity, research reports, media and industry data to identify insights and opportunities for Gemba clients. The successful candidate will also be responsible for scoping new projects and the management of jobs through our financial and project management system.

About You

You will need to have an excellent understanding of marketing and business disciplines and processes. You will also have demonstrated experience in managing marketing projects, writing and implementing marketing/brand plans and communication strategies.

Whilst relevant tertiary education will be looked upon favourability, more important is an ability to demonstrate a detailed understanding of the commercial side of partnership marketing (so don’t let the lack of a degree stop you applying, we won’t let it stop us from considering you!). You may current be working in a senior strategy role with a specialist agency like us, you might be in the commercial or marketing teams of a rights holder or could be in more traditional management consultancy. Over the years we have also had success from early career lawyers who are looking for a change in direction. What matters is your ability to break down a business problem, apply data and insight to find a solution and then sell this plan to senior clients with passion and conviction.

More specifics of the ideal candidate include:

  • Experience in managing partnership marketing projects, from proposal to final delivery.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience developing communications strategies and leverage plans for a brand’s sponsorship assets
  • Excellent understanding of both quantitative and qualitative research methods and the appropriate uses for each approach
  • Understanding of sponsorship as a marketing discipline and ability to help brands unlock its potential.
  • Advanced PowerPoint, Word and Excel skills
  • Sound research analysis skills and the ability to synthesize information and draw out the insights and the ‘so what?’ which is most relevant to our clients

This role will join two other Senior Marketing Consultants and will be supported by not only a more junior team members, but a wider agency that includes dedicated research teams, creative directors, account managers and full back-office support structure. So whilst you will have an amazing team around you, you will need to be an independent self-starter who thrives in a high performing, dynamic office culture.
