China Marketing Specialist Internship
Are you a bright China marketeer who wants to kick-start his career? Do you happen to have a love for football? Then grab this opportunity and conquer the international football world with us!
At MatchWornShirt we auction match worn and signed football shirts right from kick-off for club charities. The season 20/21 is all about growth for us – and we need your help to accomplish this! After piloting the concept in the Dutch Eredivisie in 18/19, we crossed the border to Europe’s biggest football leagues in 19/20. From our Amsterdam and London offices we service over 70 clubs and national teams in 13 different countries. With a growth rate of 600% in 19/20 - a year in which we auctioned the shirts of, amongst others, Modric, Neuer, Rakitic and Kompany - we can’t wait to continue our exponential growth for the season 20/21.
ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
In a team of 3 – including one of our two founders - you will focus on entering the Chinese market. The social media focus will be Weibo and WeChat but we will also focus on more traditional media for PR and align Chinese clubs in order to strengthen our local position. We always want to stand out, be different and surprise both our clubs and fans. There are lots of new opportunities for you to explore in this new market. Being part of our marketing team requires a pro-active and positive mindset, initiative and lots of creativity. In return you will be able to work in various different environments, receive a lot of responsibility and own projects to run and most importantly: you will see instant results!
