Head of Brand Partnerships

UK / London / United Kingdom

Since our UK launch in 2014, DICE has become the world's most innovative music discovery and ticketing platform. Fans are able to discover and find tickets to the hottest shows, club nights and festivals on the only live music discovery platform that’s built with the user in mind. Every event is handpicked by a team of show-obsessed experts.

Whilst we're building a huge tech platform, we also work directly with some of the world's biggest brands. We're looking for a Head of Brand Partnership to join our UK leadership team and develop, manage and lead our existing Brand Partnerships team. You will be given the resources to drive an exceptional team to take us to our next stage of growth.

You have a deep and trusted network and you're an expert in building successful brand partnerships. DICE also has a lot of inbound queries and existing partnerships too and you're able to prioritise the best deals for both sides.

You have demonstrable experience of negotiating big deals and are comfortable effectively closing partnerships to generate revenue. Deals at DICE can range from £50k to over £3m.

This role offers the rare opportunity to define and develop strategy, step change execution, and build on existing relationships with the biggest brands in the world. DICE is all about ideas. You’ll need to be fearlessly bold in making suggestions to push performance with solid skills to make them happen.

We bet you’ve got a ton of ideas that would change how DICE makes partnerships happen. We have the passion, resources, finance and talent to realise those initiatives.
