About you

We’re looking for a person who ideally comes from a strong marketing background and has experience managing (and implementing) marketing campaigns from start to finish. We want someone who can bring new participants to sailing, has the ability to manage multiple campaigns and responsibilities and has a true desire to see sailing grow.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you… and don’t worry if you don’t quite meet all the criteria – we’ll provide the support needed for you to develop and grow into the role.

What do we offer you?

  • Flexibility – we support flexible working arrangements, so you can adequately balance work and life commitments.
  • Hybrid working arrangement – we understand that some people enjoy working from home, so we support this… but we also love to get our people together in an office, so relationships can be formed and information sharing and collaboration can occur.
  • Wellbeing Initiatives – we have an Employee Assistance Program available to all staff and empower our people to ‘down tools’ on the first Wednesday of every month for ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’… an afternoon for you to recharge, and look after the most important thing – you!
  • Staff Discounts – through our corporate partners, our people can access significant discounts on some fantastic partner products.
  • The RITE Culture – whereby we live and breathe our RITE Values of Respect, Integrity, Teamwork and Excellence… and acknowledge and reward those who demonstrate them.
  • Professional Development – we provide opportunities for our people to thrive and develop in their current, or future role. Depending on the situation, we can provide financial support for approved learning and development opportunities, or study leave, so you have the allocated time to complete said study.
