Sportcarriere is assisting RNK in the recruitment of a Senior Manager Event on Fixed Term contract.

Established in late 2020 by founders David Donnelly and Alexandre Ferracci, RnK is first and foremost the story of a shared passion, a story built on 20+ years of expertise in the sports and entertainment sector in both France and abroad…
