Are you an innovative marketing manager who is looking for a real challenge? Can you handle the pressure of a fast-paced environment? Do you often go the extra mile to ensure success?

My client has very recently launched a successful re-brand and is looking for an experienced and creative marketing manager to have a large hand in building on that success.

Someone who is a good communicator, able to articulate well both verbally and in writing. Someone who isn't afraid of change and development, a keen innovator who is always striving for development and growth.

Flexible working, free car parking, 25 annual holidays (and the opportunity to buy/earn more), regular staff recognition awards and a clear career path, new fully refurbished office space, and much more. You will have creative freedom over the marketing strategy; with the opportunity to suggest new and innovative ideas and implement them without being pushed back constantly.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Managing the marketing calendars to ensure that all work is delivered on deadline.
  • Monitoring campaign performance for all brands, and delivering regular reports to the Senior Marketing Manager.
  • Hands on marketing activity including; email campaigns, adverts, website updates, adverts and partner collateral
  • Writing clear and precise creative briefs for the Design and IT departments.
  • Writing engaging copy for a variety of media, including full page print adverts, digital banners and email.
  • Signing off all adverts, email campaigns, etc across all brands before they are sent to print or launched.
  • Managing the media agency who negotiate and buy advertising space on my clients' behalf; this will include briefing in advertising budgets, targets and signing off finalised media spend.
