It’s not often that an opportunity to work with some of the world’s most talented people from a diverse range of backgrounds comes along. The University of Cambridge Sports Service is seeking to appoint a Sports Marketing and Communications Assistant to support the marketing and communications function of the department and to fulfil our objectives set out in the Strategy for Sport 2023- 2028.

In addition, there are over 80 different Sports Clubs and  Societies at Cambridge, all with their own success stories to celebrate. 

As the Sports Marketing and Communications Assistant, you will be assisting in the creation and delivery of campaign assets to maximise return on investment and grow the Sports Service’s revenue streams. In addition, your contribution to writing and sharing content involving different sporting success and action at Cambridge will help raise the profile of sport, leading to stronger attraction of sporting talent to Cambridge. This will also help to open the door to sponsorships and support opportunities.
