Run For All is looking for an experienced Sales and Marketing Manager with a genuine passion for sport and events, to lead its Leeds-based team.

As Sales and Marketing Manager, you will determine the annual sales and marketing plan and budget, through forecasting and developing sales quotas and income generation, analysing trends and results, establishing pricing strategies and monitoring competitors.

You will have a great understanding of what motivates people and be able to translate that knowledge into a comprehensive sales and marketing strategy.

You will be a lively, dynamic and results-focused professional who can help us stay ahead of our competitors by closely monitoring industry trends. You will work well under pressure and thrive in a challenging commercially driven environment.

A love of sport, preferably running, is desirable. Ideally, you will have a record of taking part in organised sporting events and have an understanding of the ‘runner experience’. You will possess excellent communication skills and be proficient in a range of IT packages, including Microsoft Office, Word, Power Point and Excel.

With charity at our core, we are looking to employ someone who understands the unique ethos of and aims of the organisation. Applicants should be enthusiastic, hard working, flexible (the role will naturally require weekend working in events season) and have a positive attitude and a good sense of humour. You will need to own a car and have a full driving licence to be considered for this position.
