JOB: Basketball Australia Media Mgr

I know a heap of people on here slam the poor effort by Basketball Australia to post relevant articles, content, social media, etc.

Well I saw this advertised that might be of interest to some passionate basketball media peeps. Hope someone decent gets the job!!

Problem may be the salary on offer for the Media Mgr role as it is advertised under $70k.

GM role advertised between $100-120k range.

GM role at 100K to 120K isn't going to get anyone who you'd really want for the role!

that salary just isn't high enough to attract quality candidates to take the game forward.

Not sure what a Media manager is on in sports but you'd think &70k is a bit lite as well

$70k for a Media Manager..

You'll barely get a Marketing/Media graduate with no work experience for that kind of money...

Combine the two roles and the salary.

Many such organisations do not pay that well - usually ends up with people in the ones who have a passion for the game and hence willing to make a sacrifice on pay.

IMO, the Media Mgr job should be somewhere between $85-90k and the GM role around $130-140k. Problem I believe is that they do not have the $$$.

Could the new media manager work from home perhaps?

I would prefer if BA weren't going to pay 20-30k to the executive search firm to help fill the 2 roles.

A GM with the responsibility and public profile of BA would be looking for $180K plus car/phone etc in Sydney as a starting point and then depending on the candidate this could be more.

Not sure on Media manager but the figures being quoted aren't going to get real quality people.

@Anon mentioned people willing to sacrifice cash for the "love" of the game but in the end if your struggling to make ends meat and similar roles offer more money “passion” for the game isn’t going to help...plus it is effectively still an office job not like your playing or watching hoops every other day!

As a sporting body regardless of passion for the sport we need to get the best business minds available we can afford to really spur the game on and manage it correctly…passion or knowledge of the game isn’t really that important it is all about business acumen

Then again if you ain’t got the cash that makes it really tough!

The salary is even more unappealing when you consider the position now includes media for SEABL (and I'm guessing a year round expectation to sacrifice weekends).

There were two media staff previously but only one position is being advertised. Not a good sign!

I am also curious to know why it has taken so long for this position to be advertised. The two media staff left before the start of the WNBL season, but yet we are now in February and the role has only just been advertised. The WNBL regular season has been and gone without a single press release having been distributed to to the media. Not good enough!

I wish our rep association would pay that little for a GM, our fees may be more in line with the other associations and what we receive.

This is in part, in Victoria at least, a result of BV's and the VJBL's obsession with rapid expansion.

The result of expansion is more associations of a smaller size stretching admin resources too thinly over too many roles.

Nett result is smaller wage pool appealing to unqualified or less qualified people

Reduce the number of associations and combine the admin resource and you'll not only get a higher standard of competition at the top but a better quality of admin and promotion.
