The marketing department is responsible for supporting the growth of the Club across all departments aiming to deliver award-winning campaigns, excellent fan engagement and record-breaking commercial results. The team works at a fast pace due to the nature of providing support for our commercial, brand and fan growth across all areas of the club. As the club continues to progress in all areas, this is an exciting opportunity to be part of the journey.

The Data and Insight team within marketing is responsible for the management of all 1st party data, CRM integrations, third-party enrichment data, media valuation and research tools to support not only the Marketing team, but the wider Commercial operation at Aston Villa Football Club.

The team works at a fast pace and due to the requirement to deliver insights to multiple departments across the whole year.

  • The Role

This is a new role and an exciting opportunity for a Commercial Insight Executive to join an ambitious Data and Insight team based at Villa Park. The role will be responsible for creating and delivering insight through the utilisation of multiple datasets, with a particular focus on our B2B clients, including new and existing Club partners, as well as our corporate Hospitality members.

You will have the ability to create and maintain existing insight reports to enhance our B2B insight capabilities, support our commercial benchmarking, explore new commercial opportunities, and support senior decision-making.

  • The Person

The ideal candidate would be naturally inquisitive, with a passion for understanding fan behaviours and visualising/sharing such insight. You will be a self-starter who can take a pragmatic approach with any new initiatives, an effective problem solver with strong commercial acumen. You will be intuitive and be motivated to act upon this; comfortable with setting and testing insight hypothesis, subsequently collecting appropriate data before interrogating and visualising it.

Ideally you will have proven relevant experience working in a similar research/insight-based role with demonstrable experience of supporting strategic commercial projects/processes. B2B experience is preferred, particularly in sports/sponsorship (though not essential). Good attention to detail is essential and taking responsibility for the accuracy of you own work.

You will have the ability to be flexible with work duties and hours as required by the team.

As part of your application, please ensure you upload your CV and Cover Letter.
