Marketing Manager – 12-month contract

Brief Overview

This is an opening to join an innovative and serially successful £multi-million turnover SME who are pioneers in the fields of recruitment and tech-based solutions to clients across the globe – in both private and public sectors.

They are highly regarded by their peers and are best in class at what they do, whilst offering a culture of compassion and care, giving people ample room to learn, develop and grow. Their success has been underpinned by an open and transparent working environment, highlighted by extremely high levels of staff retention and development.

The role:

This is an initial 12-month fixed term contract, ideally starting in August, with the potential to turn into a permanent role.   You’ll work very closely with the Marketing Director who has an exceptional pedigree & character, across their recruitment and technology divisions & the role plays a key part in driving and delivering marketing activities.

They’ve recently undergone a complete rebrand which has given their identity a modern & clean presence & you will be responsible for generating further awareness through targeted content, campaigns and events to maximise awareness and engagement with both clients & candidates.

This is a creative and hands-on marketing role where you will be given real responsibility for a range of marketing campaigns, both online & offline, from day one.  You will be given plenty of opportunity to create campaigns and manage the ‘tone of voice’ of the company’s messaging to reflect its position as a leading provider to a range of industry verticals – particularly financial services; banking and insurance. You will also ensure the execution of such campaigns and initiatives are timely and proactively generate concise, accurate copy and content to support marketing initiatives.

You will also work closely with the sales function to analyse the competitive marketplace and understand potential receptiveness to their messaging and undertake analytics of marketing channel metrics to analyse their effectiveness. You will also utilise an effective CRM system and manage their presence at exhibitions, seminars, trade shows and networking events as well as jumping on good news stories as and when required.

What we’re looking for:

Above all else, you’ll need experience of the most common marketing channels, and will enjoy a hands-on role in a bustling SME and be skilled in delivering innovative B2B & B2C marketing campaigns, online & offline, from concept to execution. It is preferable that some of your marketing expertise has been honed in the tech or recruitment space, but more important is your ability to drive awareness and engagement.

There is a strong creative element, so you’ll be able to write targeted, engaging copy aligned to target audience profiles, as well as design skills to produce impactive imagery (supported, where appropriate, by external providers).  Excellent social media / professional networking knowledge – particularly surrounding the use of LinkedIn and video collateral – ideally in both a B2B and B2C environment would be handy, too.

Working knowledge of website content management systems & client databases / prospects through CRM & e-mail marketing platforms would enable you to grasp the nature of this role & add value, quite quickly.

It is also useful that you have experience of working closely with sales teams to achieve commercial objectives & have a solid understanding of the importance in driving ROI from marketing activity.

What’s on offer

You’ll be joining a vibrant and fast-growing business which has an eclectic culture, a long history of success & whose growth shows no sign of abating. The real uniqueness of this role is that you will be taking on a key and high-profile position which offers an incredible amount of scope for personal development & growth.

The salary will reflect your expertise & skills but will most likely be in the region of £40,000 + a range of excellent benefits and a hybrid role that suits your circumstances. For a more informed insight, please feel free to call Simon – 0121 355 0955.
