Media Managers Gone !
21 February, 2018 14:06
In the Media " A sixth Premiership rugby club media manager leaving this season suggests
all is not well in the 12-team league.
Helen Bayes at Bath has followed others from Quins, Saracens, Wasps, Northampton and Sale through the exit door."

Is this job generally considered short term ?

We've been consistently beaten up by the gnarly Exeter website...

What was her exact responsibilities? I may be old fashioned but do we need someone to manage the media which to me seems virtually impossible to do as anyone has access to the media through all sorts of channels? Was she responsible for 'marketing and advertising' the club in a certain way?

Please enlighten me.

I'd expect a media manager to manage all the club's official social media accounts as well as web, press and TV outputs. Make sure all output from all the club's media 'toes the party line', is aligned and properly and promptly timed.
It probably includes monitoring and attempting to exert some control over all the players' social media outputs which I can imagine being a nightmare.
Doesn't surprise me in the least that the turnover in that kind of job is high.

She's PR and Communications Manager and was at Bath for 7 years, so hardly a short term in and out!

'I may be old fashioned', but who needs PR and communication in this internet and social media age anyway?

I, for one, see BoB as the perfect person for the job, anyone know where it will be advertised?

Day 1, press release:

'Weakling Ewels selected again by England

Marshmallow man Charlie Ewels was today confusingly picked again for England, despite the 145 better England qualified locks who can punch people much harder and more frequently. Ewels will no doubt be pining for his daily 10am Farleigh spray tan'

Swanny was at Sale for 17 years - definitely not short term!

None of the ones mentioned in the original post were short term, most were well over 5 or even 10 years in the position.

That may have been ironic Matt but it certainly made me smile!

Now I must get my CV up together and send off the old letter to the lovely Tarquin about how I am willing (for a vast salary, priority free use of the spa facilities, plus a Gieves and Hawkes clothing allowance and the sponsored Land Rover) to step into the breach in his and the club's hour of need. I am sure he will appreciate my offer of help!

It was like the near return to the playing colours earlier this year, one has to put the club's needs before one's own, especially for such an important role in selling the benefits and all things advantageous to the media and the World in general.

Although I say so myself, I could be made for this role! I realise after all my experiences standing cheering on the terraces or sat in my West stand seat watching the visitudes of the clubs fortunes ebb and flow, it was all influenced my mind, meant to be and fate has opened the door of opportunity for me to help resurrect Bath Rugby's fortunes.

None of this namby pampby politically correct nonsense, just tell it as it is, especially how the Spa culture is ruining perfectly good rugby players. Remove all devices from their lockers and by including it in their contracts, ban any contact with any form of media as I am the man and we are to all sing from the same song sheet. Will need a few pretty young girls along side me to dispense the odd G & T at press conferences, and to help lessen the blow to the hacks when the news may not be good!

Sell off the pitches, build houses all over them, get players back to their roots at Lambridge where they belong grovelling in the mud, with ritual flogging of players who underperform, Monday beastings to ensure they are sick and unload the excesses of the weekend, food only to be supplied from the mobile chip van and tea urn set up in the office. All this to be made into a new exposee TV series called the Coming of the new Bath Romans, rugby in the raw. No sex or diversions, just hard running and practising skills 18 hours a day. After a Saturday game, every one to a man, down to the nearest beer/cider sponser for an evening of carousing, singing and playing of manly rugby bar games.

We are going to introduce a new culture of can do, will do to the players and coming second or dare I say it, defeat is definitely not to be even considered.

Lets get to work boys. We (with my minor assistance) can turn this into a truly riveting news story of unprecedented success.

Don't bother with the petition guys, its a no brainer and this one is in the bag!

Yep, Chris Wearmouth at Saints was there for quite a number of years.

Helen had been at the club for quite some time, and was always visible on match days.
Hope she has got herself a better paid post with appreciative and supportive management.

As Stuart says, she has done 7 years at Bath Rugby.

I met her today.
The move is her own choice -for a change and a new PR role/challenge -in Bath.

Hardly "all is not well" in the Prem!

I think the 'all is not well' quote comes from the fact 5 other premiership clubs Media/Press officers had left this season, probably just a coincidence ?

Good to meet you and put a face to the name PG! Indeed, she seemed quite excited about her move. The Club seem to have PR & Comms organised moving forward, and we hope for a more pro active approach smiling smiley
