The Marketing and Communications Officer will be responsible for creating and executing marketing plans across multiple departments at Surrey Sports Park which may include student sport, health, fitness and well-being including The Treatment Room and sports participation.

In addition, the role incorporates the creation and campaign management of marketing strategies aligned with ticket revenue generation and growth for the two franchises Surrey Scorchers and Surrey Storm including raising awareness of community activities such as basketball for all.

We are looking for someone who lives and breathes sport and marketing. Someone who looks for inspiration from across all levels of the industry and likes to challenge themselves in almost every project they work on. We want to you drive content and messages in a creative way ensuring you stay on top of the current trends for sport and fitness and that we are keeping in-line with our competitors.

One moment you could be creating fitness tip videos with our Health and Fitness Team, the next you could be clipping match highlights, interviews or behind-the-scenes content with our professional athletes, so being comfortable with variation and a high-paced environment is vital.

As part of this role, you will need to be a confident face-to-face communicator able to develop positive working relationships with a range of key stakeholders, including Surrey Sports Park colleagues, University of Surrey staff and students, creative agencies, sponsors, partners and media.

Your work has the potential to be seen by thousands of people worldwide, so ensuring that brand messages are consistent, and enhance our reputation, while maintaining momentum with regular content and originality, is paramount.

Due to the nature of the role and the business, some unsociable hours should be expected, including late nights and weekends at certain times, especially during franchise seasons.

Surrey Sports Park is at the heart of sport and physical activity in Surrey, and our mission is to deliver the best possible sport, health and wellbeing experience to our University of Surrey students and to the wider SSP community. We provide strategic added value to the University by delivering an outstanding student experience through social and competitive sport and providing an excellent environment for wellness and fitness for Surrey staff and students, and our community impact is significant both culturally and physically. The team is passionate and high performing, and the business model requires us to deliver a self-sustaining, well managed and customer service focused business.
