City of Peterborough Sports Club Operations & Commercial Manager

The Club is delighted to announce that Jonathan Short has been appointed as the new Operations Manager and will be starting his new job on 11th March 2024.

Jonathan has been a member of the Hockey Section of the Club for over 25 years as one of the senior goalkeepers, having been a part of the 1st XI in the National League for several seasons and still a regular in the higher sides of the club. He has also represented Wales with distinction in various Masters age groups on the national and international stage over the past few years and is scheduled to do so again at the Over 55s World Cup in November this year.

Jonathan’s professional CV is equally impressive, with a career spanning roles at Thomas Cook, various divisions of BT and most recently Experian. In the spheres of IT and digital technology, he has experience in programme management, transformation management, continuous improvement, service improvement and strategic transformation delivery. He has managed many teams of differing sizes and has worked with people at all levels up to CEO.

Jonathan is now ready to leave the corporate world, looking forward to putting something back into the Club which has offered him so much for so many years, and he is genuinely excited by the challenge and variety of the role. Jonathan commented on accepting the job, “I can’t wait to get started, as I hopefully can make a big difference to the day-to-day running and future profitability of the sports club.”

We are looking forward to welcoming him into the new role and hope everyone will support him as he learns the Club from the other side of the fence!
