·         Be on top of what’s happening in AFL & sports, and keep an eye on competitor activity and changes in the                marketing mix used by competitors and out-of-category brands.

·         Keep our brand vibrant, dynamic, aspirational and the envy of every other sports brand in Australia.

This role will require strong leadership and stakeholder management skills to deliver against an ambitious brand strategy, and demonstrated experience in digital marketing and implementation of an integrated brand strategy. You will need to know the difference between content and great content, between copy and a compelling brand story, between a photo and emotional brand imagery and photographic approaches.

In order to be successful in this role, you will also need: 

•                    Significant experience in a brand driven direct and digital marketing communications senior role.

•                    Demonstrated experience in implementing brand strategy and developing brand-based engagement                         marketing campaigns.

•                    A passion to inspire great creative content and to curate brand stories with internal and external                                  stakeholders to produce exceptional content for the right channels.

•                    Leadership, management and coordination experience in an integrated brand and digital structure.

•                    Strong stakeholder management skills (internal and external stakeholders) with the ability to                                        communicate across all levels of an organisation.

•                    Proven ability to think and act both strategically and creatively.

There is a requirement for all full time staff to assist on match days and other events as required by the club, which includes weekends. The remuneration and benefits provided factor in this requirement.
