Reporting into the Sponsorship Manager on a day-to-day basis, and ultimately the Head of Sponsorship, this is a newly created position to support the LiveScore Group Sponsorship Department in its management and activation of its official sports partnerships. This includes LiveScore’s sponsorship of LaLiga and Virgin Bet’s horse racing sponsorship portfolio as well as any other ad hoc and future rights holder or talent partnership opportunities for any of our LiveScore, LiveScore Bet and Virgin Bet brands.
The sponsorship strategy is closely aligned with the broader business strategy and is designed to both support and accelerate the objectives of the business. Sports partnerships are one of LiveScore Group’s primary vehicles being deployed to help improve key brand health metrics as well as to increase the size and level of engagement of our userbase, and it is therefore of central importance to the Group.
This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a sponsorship role for a business that is in the relatively early stages of its growth but one that is generating significant momentum across all its brands.
LiveScore’s digital platforms (our native apps and LiveScore.com website) are already the go-to destinations for sports content, and the recently launched LiveScore Bet brand is an incredibly exciting juncture poised for further growth, as is our Virgin Bet brand – currently the UK’s fastest growing sportsbook. We’re not sitting back and resting on our laurels though and have ambition to grow further and be at the forefront of sports consumption in the future.
This role offers the opportunity for a candidate with sponsorship & brand activation experience within a sporting context, to further their careers working within a fast paced, digital focused, content driven, global tech and media company.
You will play a key role in how LiveScore Group strategically activates, manages and measures its sports sponsorship portfolio within key markets around the world. There will be a large focus on collaborating with Group colleagues and our external partners, bringing our sponsorships to life in a meaningful way for our brands and the business.
