In partnership with executive search firm, 4c Executive, Ulster Rugby is hiring for a new senior leader to drive forward the club’s commercial ambitions.

A high-performing professional rugby club, the Governing Body for a vibrant community game across the province, and a sustainable local business and employer, Ulster Rugby is looking to appoint a new Head of Commercial to grow on-pitch success by maximising off-field income for the club.

As part of Senior Management, the successful individual will be responsible for the creation and implementation of the strategies, structures, and processes which will drive all functions within Ulster Rugby which impact on revenue generation.

Ulster Rugby CEO, Jonny Petrie, said:

“Our purpose at Ulster Rugby is to grow and develop professional and domestic rugby throughout the province and to achieve this, we need to continuously invest in the game across all levels.

“We expect the successful candidate to generate income through our existing sponsors and partners, and identify and secure new opportunities, that will bring about success for all those who represent Ulster – whether that be under the Friday night lights at Kingspan Stadium, or at their local club on a Saturday morning.

“This will be a challenging and rewarding role for an ambitious individual who will play their part in Ulster Rugby building pride in the province, both on and off the pitch.”

Gordon Carson, Managing Director of 4c Executive, added:

“This is a unique and exciting opportunity for an applicant with significant experience in a senior commercial and marketing role, which comes with a highly competitive salary and benefits package.

“The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience of leading, managing, and developing teams, as well as representing organisations at senior networking events, and nurturing professional relationships with leaders from the private, public, and third sectors.

“A successful track record of creating, presenting, and negotiating detailed commercial proposals along with driving key account management to establish long-lasting, profitable partnerships is also essential.”
