At SIS Group we are passionate about sport, especially the surfaces they are played on.

We manufacture, install, and maintain pitches for some of the biggest properties in world sport including the 2018 & 2022 FIFA World Cups, the 2023 Rugby World Cup and leading clubs like FC Barcelona and Manchester City FC along with many others. We have operations across the world and currently employ over 400 people.

We pride ourselves on innovation and at SIS Group new ideas have a way of becoming game-changing products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. To put it another way, we are on a mission to change the game, for good.

To achieve this, we have created the position of Marketing Director. This will be a new role in the business which will be part of the executive leadership team and will report directly to the Group CEO.

To cut to the chase we are looking for a skilled senior marketeer with 10+ years sales & marketing experience along with a genuine passion for sport who can embed best commercial marketing practice across our business group.

You will collaborate closely with all our divisional leads to align on growth opportunities and customer insights that inform the introduction of new products and services as well as locally originated campaigns and initiatives.

This is an amazing opportunity for the right candidate to shine on a global stage. If this sounds like you, there is no telling what you could accomplish here.
