Sales Director

Looking through job adverts is a bit of a lottery – searching for that one opportunity that excites you, that motivates you and that you want to be ‘the one’. Hopefully you have found it here as we have an opportunity that is as special as it is unique!

Our client, Sport4Kids has an amazing opportunity for an individual that is interested in working in the sports education industry training and developing children. Sounds fantastic already – and it genuinely is. 

This is a customer-centric role and it requires a pioneering spirit as you will be building a business in a new territory and the best news of all that territory is right where you live now, or where you want to live if you want to move. Furthermore, this is an opportunity for you to own your own business, not just be an employee (again).

If running your own business in the sports industry is not something that interests you then we recommend that you move on as this will only appeal to those individuals that want to break free from the corporate world and move into something different.

About our Client

Sport4Kids have spent the last four years building a sports model with multiple revenue streams that operates 364 days per year. The potential is huge in a market that is massive and to facilitate their rapid growth they are seeking franchise partners to take a territory and trade as Sport4Kids. It’s a revolution and Sport4Kids have engaged Colin Jackson as their Brand Ambassador and he is wholeheartedly behind the S4K Way and what it stands for. Importantly the educational and scientific structure behind the programmes that Sport4Kids offer is based on sound and proven methodology.

The Opportunity

This is not a role where you become the sports coach – this is where your ability to run and build a sales business is paramount. You will be supported by the S4K Business System, comprehensive training and the High Performance Team of Sport4Kids to help you get the business off the ground but it is your enthusiasm and passion that will have to shine through to build a business that will become a multi-million pound business for you. Good things don’t come easy and this is not a role for the faint-hearted. It requires a personal financial investment to secure the position. Think of it as being akin to becoming a Formula One driver – you don’t get paid the big bucks unless you invest the effort, the time and the money at the early stage! There will be huge competition for these roles.

  • Massive gross profit margins and net profit circa £350K plus after 3 to 5 years
  • Powerful S4K Business System and strong support network
