NEW BUSINESS & MARKETING MANAGER
M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment: who we are…
We create change for brands by connecting them to audiences through the things people love – their passions.
We forge enduring connections between brands and people, through their love of sports, entertainment and culture.
We launched our agency 16 years ago with the belief that sponsorship should be as creative and effective as any other brand marketing discipline, and with the single aim of being the most creative agency in our space. This continues to be our driving purpose, supported by two further key principles of efficacy (proving brand and commercial effectiveness of passion marketing) and inclusivity (operating with the belief that diverse minds are fundamental to creative excellence)
We no longer define ourselves as a sponsorship agency – sponsorship is still at the core of our expertise – but we are sector experts and we define our sector as ‘passion marketing’. We have expanded that expertise beyond sport and entertainment, into lifestyle, hyper and micro passions. We help brands to connect to audiences by making them culturally relevant in these passions, through a combination of in-depth understanding of fan communities and respective commercial landscapes.
Our vision and aspiration is to become the most inclusive, equitable and diverse agency in our space within the next three years. Please read our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion policy on our website
