Do you have what it takes; Sports Marketing and Sponsorship; Assistant

By Katherine

We are looking for someone to join our Branding Department to assist with Sports Marketing and Sponsorship – interested?!

AirAsia and AirAsia X is aggressively expanding in the global world of Sports, from helping make dreams come true for the youth of ASEAN, to proudly flying our flag with the ‘top dogs’ and the likes of Lotus Racing and Oakland Raiders NFL team.
We were there with the Asean Basketball League during their first season last year, when they established the first regional league in ASEAN for any sport, and we are back again as the Title Sponsors this year.
We are the Title Sponsor of the AirAsia British Grand Prix for MotoGP in UK where AirAsia took over Silverstone, home of British Motor Racing. On top of that, have our own team with a Malaysian Rider racing around the circuits of the World Championship ablaze with the colors of AirAsia. Not only that but Fahmi, our Malaysia rider has made history by scoring Malaysia’s first World Championship point in the 125cc category.
For the last 3 years we have sponsored one of the most recognized teams on the Formula One Grid; AT&T Williams.
With our AirAsia Asean Driver Development initiative launched earlier this year, we work with two young budding drivers on their way to the forefront in Motorsports; Nabil Jeffri and Daim Hishammuddin to help them on their way. Nabil has already made history by being the youngest ever driver to do an Aero Test in a Formula One earlier this month with the helping hand of our partners Lotus Racing.

Needless to say – AirAsia and Sports are starting to go hand in hand, and we are looking for someone who can help us get the most out of these key partnerships.
