Vivacity’s mission is to enrich lives by inspiring people through Culture, Sport and Healthy Living. We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation with charitable status that is committed to ensuring Peterborough is a better place to live and work. We already do much for the people of the City; we want to do more and reach further afield.  To achieve this, we need to grow our income and, importantly, develop new commercial ventures; this is where you come in as our New Product Manager.

We have recently embarked on establishing a ‘new’ Vivacity, improving what we are good at.  But we do not want to stop there.  We plan to expand our offering by growing our existing markets and reaching into new ones. We have already re-set the organisation as a strategic partner in the wider ambitions of the city.  We now need to capitalise on this start.

The New Product Manager will be working within the new commercial directorate with a team of two.  The post will report to the Director and will be part of our wider senior managers’ group.  The successful candidate will provide us with strong commercial capability in developing new business opportunities and growing our commercial offering that expands our reach.  The post will also manage all grant and sponsorship development as two key developing income streams for Vivacity. 

We are looking for individuals with commercial experience within a highly competition, service delivery and outlet orientated environment; a knowledge of culture, sport or healthy living commercial activities may be helpful. You will need drive, to be innovative and able to influence and negotiate with a diverse set of stakeholders.  You will also need to work closely with operational colleagues to ensure you can add real value to the organisation.

If you are looking for a new challenge in a developing organisation where you can build the role within a new team; then this new post is for you.
