Featured Job of the Week

Talent & Influence Marketing Manager

Organization: Fan Controlled Football

Location: Atlanta, GA

Overview: This position must have proven experience and ability to identify and approach emerging and established talent via relationships and creative deal structuring, balancing the needs of talent with the needs of the league, supporting decisions with data and research, driving new ideas and concepts forward, and contributing to the day-to-day management of an influencer / owner program.

  • Develop and maintain direct, on-going relationships with talent including celebrity players and owners and their management team / agents.

  • Conceptualize unique ideas for event activations that talent can participate in onsite at Game Day and responsible for bringing these ideas to life working with onsite experiential agency and fan experience team.

  • As point person for influencers and talent, this candidate will leverage key FCF assets to broaden reach and drive engagement

  • Support in conceptualizing and executing unique content ideas that enable talent / influencers to connect with players, other celebrity owners/influencers, fans etc

Why we like it?

We like this job for two reasons: potential and subject matter. First, Fan Controlled Football (FCF) recently completed a $40M Series A funding led by two Venture Capital investors that specialize in crypto and NFTs. Digital experts believe in the ability of this league to flourish, so it could be the perfect place for a sports professional to exponentially grow his or her skills in a funded, startup environment. Secondly, positions that work directly with talent are highly coveted. This position gives candidates a chance to work with league talent, owners, celebrities and influencers.
