About the British Olympic Association and Team GB:
Team GB is the British and Northern Irish Olympic team – one of the nation’s most successful teams and one of its favourite brands. Run by the British Olympic Association (BOA), Team GB competes at Olympic and Olympic Winter Games and other events such as the European Games, Youth Olympic Games and European Youth Olympic Festivals.
The BOA is independent and privately funded. Our success is entirely dependent upon the income we receive from our commercial programmes, including but not limited to sponsorship, fundraising, licensing and events.
Team GB is the public-facing brand of the BOA and with over 3.5m followers across its channels has a highly engaged and passionate audience. With the Paris 2024 Olympic Games on the horizon and so close to home, the BOA has set out on an exciting new strategic path to refresh its brand, invest in data and generate new forms of content to grow our audiences and further engage the nation in support of our team and athletes.
The Commercial Executive role is fixed term until October 2024. The postholder will provide day to day support across the BOA’s portfolio of Olympic sponsors with the opportunity to manage several key projects and sponsors in the lead up to and during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The postholder will need to build relationships with sponsors and their agencies, develop activation ideas and ensure all contractual agreements are delivered.
Alongside this, you will develop strong relationships with internal stakeholders to deliver time sensitive projects and campaigns on behalf of the sponsors.
The BOA has adopted a hybrid way of working blending in office time with optional home-working. The postholder will have the option to work from home for 2 days per week. We ask that home-working days are flexible to reflect the needs of the business.
