Job Description
Title: Manager, Marketplace support, Microflex – Tours & Onsales

Division: Ticketmaster

Location: UK/Europe Fully Remote

Contract Terms: Permanent, Full Time + travelling required

THE TEAM

Marketplace Support is situated at the intersection of Product, Technology, and Fan engagement. Our team's aim is to deliver the finest fan experience by harmonising the efforts of Marketplace and Enterprise teams with the requirements of our Artist and Venue clients, delivering a premium fan experience.

THE JOB

The MPS Manager role offers an exciting opportunity within the new Marketplace Support MFX team. This position involves guiding the new team towards achieving specific business goals (OKRs), while also supporting the overarching objectives of Marketplace Support Global.

The team, which will include colleagues in both Event Analyst and Operations Project Manager roles, will work towards full ownership of the onsales process for Microflex markets, building upon the work already undertaken by the MCAS team in this area, whilst looking to install trusted global process and overall strengthen the onsales support for these key TM markets through consultation and collaboration with key stakeholders across Business and TM Music verticals, Product and Technology verticals, Fan Support, and Incident Management teams.

Collaborating closely with MPS Leadership is paramount. Together, they focus on policy development, goal management, productivity metrics, staff evaluation, performance issues, training, and the maintenance of crucial business relationships.

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING

Responsibilities include day-to-day resource allocation for projects and on-sale support, gap analysis, and liaising with other department leads listed above to coordinate scheduling and onsale planning.

Continuous improvement of functional processes is a core focus. This encompasses workflow request systems, tracking, tools, QA processes, communication, and on-sale call management. Enhancements in these areas aim to enhance precision and quality across significant events and on-sales, ultimately optimising the Fan Experience. Working closely with MPS Leadership, the MPS Manager discusses, documents, implements, and executes these improvements.

Staying abreast of new MFX and channel developments, as well as digital strategies and key company initiatives, is vital. Providing valuable input on product-related projects and engaging in staff education are also part of the role.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW (or TECHNICAL SKILLS)

The MPS Manager may at times lead in addressing business disruptions and providing summaries to Senior Management and various stakeholders. Effective communication with Tech, Dev, or cross-functional teams across platforms like Slack, Outlook, Confluence, JIRA, and Salesforce is crucial. This includes notifying affected teams, updating Senior Management, explaining causes and resolutions, logging and tracking bugs, and conducting reviews.
