This opportunity with the City of Brampton, building the long-term strategy to shape the City’s economic growth, calls for an innovative, forward-thinking leader whose ability to build business relationships is matched by a proven history in marketing, sales and administration.

Brampton is a city focused on the future. Serving one of the youngest, fastest growing and most diverse urban centres in Canada, the Corporation of the City of Brampton is aiming high and thinking big, to position itself as an emergent global city of the future. City leaders understand that success requires passion, creativity and agility. As a result of Brampton’s strategic location along the super innovation corridor, close proximity to Pearson International Airport, and 7 million people within a 45-minute drive, the City is ideally positioned for significant investment. The organization values progress and innovation over process and staff members hold each other accountable. Brampton is a team that is engaged, excited and empowered to deliver results. If you share Brampton’s vision of the future, this is where you want to be as Manager, Sponsorship and Corporate Development.

Reporting to the Director of Economic Development and Culture and operating under the administrative oversight of the Executive Staff Board of Directors, you will lead the establishment and implementation of the City’s Corporate Sponsorship strategy, driving future portfolio growth. Day-to-day management will be an integral part of the role, including marketing and sales, with a goal of generating and maintaining a multimillion-dollar revenue portfolio in keeping with the mandate of the Brampton Economic Development and Culture Office.

As Manager, Sponsorship and Corporate Development, you will work collaboratively with the City’s asset management network to develop a sponsorship portfolio that includes facilities, programs, special events, festivals, service vehicles, community centres, libraries, playgrounds and others. You have an eye for long-term strategy, which you will employ in leveraging sponsorship and revenue-generating opportunities for Brampton. Following the City’s Corporate Strategic Plan, and researching trends and prospects in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, you will develop funding and implement marketing sales plans and strategies to ensure consistent future portfolio growth. You will oversee the production of sponsorship signage, recognizing the business partnerships you’ve established for the City, and provide accurate, thorough reporting to the Board of Directors, CAO and Council.

Your managerial role will require you to be a leader of people, by coaching, guiding and mentoring staff, ensuring team morale, conducting performance reviews and recruiting new personnel whose qualifications meet business needs. Beyond being a marketing and sales professional, you will be an ambassador for the community of Brampton, which will see you building long-term, sustainable business relationships and partnerships grounded in strong principles of customer service. Teamwork and cooperation are central to the position, as well as properly managing, communicating and reporting budget details.

You come to this key mandate with a degree or diploma in Business Administration, Commerce, Public Administration or another related discipline, and have 8 years’ experience in sales, marketing, advertising or promotions in the public or private sector. With at least 3 years and preferably 5 years of success in management, you have the demonstrated ability to lead, coach and motivate staff. Along with being a creative and inventive problem-solver with an analytical approach, you are a self-starter with an entrepreneurial approach to business development, and you have the boldness to be assertive about it.

As a manager, you are known for your ability to achieve goals and objectives, set priorities, meet deadlines, and multi-task, and have a masterful understanding of diverse internal and external business models. Your oral and written communication skills are highly persuasive, and you can leverage them to develop positive working relationships with both internal and external stakeholders. A Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) designation is considered an asset.
