Cycling Ireland has advertised a new job in the marketing and communications area, but also including sponsorship duties.

Cycling Ireland has advertised a new job in the marketing and sponsorship area with a salary of up to €50,000 and possible extra commission payments.

The commission would be paid on any new advertising deals the candidate would bring to the national governing body.

However, while the successful candidate will be free to attract additional sponsors, the role is primarily a marketing and communications post.

The person who gets the job will be responsible for promoting the Cycling Ireland brand, including through social media.

They will also be expected to develop contacts in the media and to provide media training to other Cycling Ireland personnel and riders.

In the job spec, the federation says of the new ‘marketing and communications manager’ role:

“The purpose of the role will be to lead the provision of the full range of CI communications and marketing functions, including all digital, social and traditional media, the Cycling brand, website and sponsorship acquisition/activation.

“This newly created role will report to the chief executive officer and will form part of the general management team structure.

“The Marketing & Communications Manager will be a key conduit across all areas of the CI business – including high performance, education & development, finance and events.”

In what appears like a positive development, whoever fills the newly created role will also be tasked with generally raising the profile of the federation’s events.

One of the many key responsibilities of the role is to “source suitable sponsorship opportunities that are beneficial to Cycling Ireland and ensure these sponsorships are activated, with sponsors serviced appropriately”.

Applicants are also being asked to indicate their salary expectations when they apply for the job.

The salary range is between €40,000 and €50,000, depending on the candidate. And while commission for bringing in sponsors is referenced, no details of how much that commission would be are included.
