The Premier League’s Partnerships Team is responsible for relationship management, contractual delivery and activation across all Premier League Partners and Licensees, including EA SPORTS, Barclays, Cadbury, Carling, Coca-Cola, NIKE, TAG Heuer, Topps and Sporting iD.
We are currently looking for a Partnerships Operations Manager to manage day-to-day relationships and ensure effective delivery of rights across all Partners and Licensees.
The successful candidate will work closely with the Partnerships Strategy Manager with the aim of adding real value to these relationships by helping Partners and Licensees deliver best-in-class activations, campaigns and products.

Who we are
The Premier League competition produces some of the most exciting football in the world and is proud to appeal to everyone, everywhere. The League and its clubs use their power and popularity to inspire fans and partners through investment and engagement in communities in the UK and across the globe.
The Premier League’s responsibilities include organising the competition and its Rule Book as well as managing the centralised broadcast and commercial rights.
