International Surrey Football is seeking a Commercial Director to lead ISF’s commercial goals and lead the growth of its retail, ticketing, public awareness and sponsorship sectors.
You’ll be required to develop a plan for ISF’s commercial growth developing 4 key areas. You’ll be free to introduce and create your own team to handle each sector.
- Retail: Managing the promotion and sale of all retail items from shirts, pin badges, scarfs and more, through online or matchday sales,
