About You

  • First and foremost, we are looking for a passionate Marketing assistant who is ready to fly (2+ years) and manage their own projects
  • It would really suit a qualified Marketer, who really wants to elevate their career within a large organisation, but enjoy the versatility and autonomy a small team can offer
  • If you hate to be a desk slave, then even better as you will be encouraged to visit your 'clients', partner agencies and suppliers on a regular basis - building relationships should be second nature to you!
  • If you are already experienced in B2B marketing, managing delivery from briefings to results reporting then you won't feel like you've taken a step backwards!
  • Due to the nature of the role a driving licence is required

This is a great opportunity, and we need someone looking for their next step who wants to bed in, take the bull by the horns and really make their mark.
