Job Description

We have an exceptional opportunity for an experienced and brilliantly connected Commercial Director to identify and secure new business and drive commercial sales strategy for Sunset+Vine.

As a key member of Sunset+Vine’s leadership team, with a wide-ranging remit across commercial negotiations and business development, the role combines functions across media distribution, sponsorship/brand sales and strategic development.

Reporting to Sunset+Vine’s Executive Director and working alongside Sunset+Vine’s management team including our Heads of Branded Content, Distribution, Digital, Broadcast and Women’s Sport.


You’ll need a genuine passion for sport and demonstrate a strong working understanding of the broadcast media world.

With a successful track record winning business, closing deals, and an address book packed with brand and agency contacts, you’ll be a self-starter, comfortable initiating commercial discussions, but also devising commercial strategies.

You’ll write and present compelling pitch documents and innovative and engaging presentations, then lead on those presentations and commercial discussions.


Sunset+Vine is a global sports media company with major international host broadcast production contracts and UK and international broadcast commissions – we produce more than 2000 hours of original sports programming a year, a combination of live, highlights and feature programming.

Our commercial division works to deliver value to brands, federations and rights holders through programming, content and distribution across television, digital and social networks.

The company is based in Hammersmith, London, with offices in Dubai, Singapore, Glasgow and Cardiff.

The Executives In Sport Group are exclusively retained on behalf of Sunset+Vine to identify and appointment the Commercial Director. All direct applications and agency enquiries will be passed directly to The Executives In Sport Group.
