Connacht Rugby has announced five new jobs as part of an expansion in its commercial and marketing team.

Four of the new positions are being advertised immediately and applications will be sought for the other vacancy later in the year.

The exciting new roles are at various levels of the commercial and marketing team from management to executive roles.

This expansion will allow the club to deliver on Connacht Rugby's new vision, 'Grassroots to Green Shirts', which was launched last year.

Commenting on the expansion, Brian Mahony, head of commercial and marketing at Connacht Rugby, said the club was excited at the announcement and called on interested applicants to apply.

"As part of our restructuring plans we are announcing five new jobs in the areas of marketing, communications and customer service. We are advertising immediately for the roles of marketing and events manager, communications executive, customer services executive and business services executive.

"Later in the year we will seek applications for the position of ticketing manager. We are committed to investing in good people to deliver on our vision and we look forward to getting top-class candidates to fill these positions.

"We are very proud to be making this announcement. We are a huge net contributor to the economy in the west of Ireland and already employ over 80 non-playing staff.

"These new positions will further strengthen our team as we aim to deliver on the keys elements of our Grassroots to Green Shirts strategy and ultimately to deliver facilities that match our ambition."
