Insider - For the latest job hunting and recruitment news and views sign as main sponsor of Portsmouth FC

23rd July 2009Jobsite are thrilled to announce that they have signed as the main club sponsor of Portsmouth Football Club today. It marks the start of a new phase of brand activity for Jobsite, building on the huge success of their TV campaign during the last year.

From the start of the new season in August, the Jobsite logo will take pride of place on the shirts of the Portsmouth players, at multiple points both inside and outside of the stadium, across the Portsmouth FC website, on match day programmes/tickets, on official club merchandise and across the interview backdrop which features on Sky and BBC football coverage. On top of this extensive branding, the sponsorship package includes the renaming of the Fratton end of the ground to become the Jobsite Stand, appointment as PFC’s official recruitment partner, comprehensive hospitality opportunities, player appearances and use of the stadium facilities.

This latest activity confirms Jobsite’s commitment to becoming the UK’s best known online recruitment brand and demonstrates the importance they place on finding new and different ways to reach consumers. With only twenty teams in the Premier League, Jobsite join elite brands such as Samsung, Carlsberg and Emirates in securing sponsorship of one of these first class football clubs.

Keith Potts, Jobsite CEO, says; ‘This is another bold step into new territory for Jobsite. Our TV campaign proved massively successful in helping us to raise brand awareness but Jobsite have never been a company to rest on our laurels. Becoming the main club sponsor for Portsmouth FC will allow us to reach a huge number of our target demographic – for example over 4.2 million people watch Match of the Day on a weekly basis.

He adds, ‘Portsmouth Football Club is also closely aligned with our brand values; they’re a down to earth, straight talking, hard working club who are renowned as having some of the best fans in football. They’re also our local club and we’re extremely proud that they’re in the Premier League. We’re excited to be their main sponsor and to supporting them as the new season starts.’

Peter Storrie, CEO of Portsmouth Football Club comments, ‘We’re delighted to welcome Jobsite as our new main club sponsor, in what represents the biggest sponsorship deal in the club’s history. We have been impressed by Jobsite’s attitude and approach to supporting the club and believe that they will be a great partner. Jobsite are joining at an exciting time for the club and we look forward to building a close working relationship with them in the future.’

Paul Bell, Commercial Director at Portsmouth Football Club, who worked on signing the deal, continues, ‘From the initial conversation with Jobsite it was clear that they were serious about extending their brand awareness campaign into new ground to reach more consumers. Becoming the main club sponsor at Portsmouth FC will help them to reach significant audiences both in the UK and Worldwide. Their innovative marketing activity has seen Jobsite become a leader within the recruitment sector and we are excited about working with them over the next three seasons to help deliver their brand and business objectives. We are a progressive football club and strive to work with likeminded, forward thinking brands and with Jobsite we have found a fantastic partner.’

    • Vicky Taylor

      Nope, but he did pop in yesterday to chat to all the Jobsite staff, really nice guy, and we got to see the new shirts.

  • Corbin

    Glad to see a successful, local company involved with the club again. Hope it works out for all parties involved.

  • Greg

    Good work! A local company sponsoring a local team. Thought shirt branding was very effective on Match of the Day highlights. Hope it’s a mutually beneficial relationship.

    PS. What about entering pompey fans into a draw for a pair of hospitality tickets for every home game? ;o) I’d certanly come back and visit the site on a regular basis!

    I am an agent and I would like to find somewhere to send some of my players. And I do not know really now who and where to start.

    I need some advice from you…

  • Lewis Yates

  • Networker

    Great achievement. There must be a solid team behind jobsite. Most of online recruitment trendsetters still own a big chuck of the market

    As for me i converted my website to a business network – no way i will be able to mix with the big boys

  • kim

    thankyou so much for supporting the best team in the world x

  • Russ

    Why have a club with such a large profile as Portsmouth sold out by :- Not purchasing a new ground with access from the motorway system.
    2. Not have had the finance and future to keep such an excellent manager and players.

  • ken

    i love u all

  • Albert Chambers

    Do not support Portsmouth but I think Jobsite is an ok website for finding jobs

  • Conor

    wat has happened to pompey this season??? omg!! how hav the stupid backroom management let this incredible club gone to waste??!! h8 them all!

  • ed

    sadly this has put me off using jobsite now, it is nothing to be proud linking with a wash out club failing miserably trying to keep a toe hold on the premiership.

  • Geoff

    Good to see that at least JS is sticking by Pompey. Most other companies would have found a way of getting out of the contract. Good on yer. Support the community!

  • Duke

    It is a shame that Portsmouth football club are almost confirmed to be relegated. Thankyou Jobsite for providing a sponsor and I hope you renew in the future

  • K
